  The Friendly Computer Courses
  


The Friendly Computer Courses I and II were written by our Senior Tutor, Sara Barnes, to fill a gap in the range of courses that the centre provides. They follow on from the Introduction to IT course and can give the learner a wider understanding of computers. They can also prepare a learner for a loner course such as the Diploma, New CLAIT or the ECDL.

The courses are administered by the Cockermouth Adult Education Centre and you need to email them to book a place on one of these courses.

These courses are not accreditted and are ideal for someone who is only interested in improving their skills without the need for a formal qulaification at the end of it all.
