Training

iMac with FrontRowApple-Q runs two types of training seminars each month (except December) - mini-seminars on the regular meeting day and training seminars a week later.

Mini-seminars


We normally run mini-seminars at the regular monthly meeting ranging from a few minutes on a useful tip or app to the main presentation of the day.

These seminars are free for members and first-time visitors.

The details of these seminars are normally published on this site in the weeks leading up to the meeting. They are also emailed to members in the days before the meeting and listed in the monthly Apple-Bug Magazine.

Training Seminars


Apple-Q generally runs these training seminars on the fourth Sunday of the month. These seminars cover a range of topics, such as an introduction to the Macintosh, OS X and iOS basics, useful apps and computer programming. Topics for upcoming training seminars are discussed at the regular monthly meetings.

These seminars are only available to financial members of Apple-Q.

Cost:
Free — yes, free — for club members.

Requirements:
It is recommended that you bring your own computer. Often people learn more in the seminar by performing the same tasks as the tutor on their own devices.

If you bring your Mac, please make sure you bring power adaptors and extension leads, as applicable.
Registration: There are limited numbers so you need to register on the regular meeting day (the meeting prior to the training day) or contact the Training Coordinator.

Registration is also important so you can be contacted, in case a training session is cancelled.

Training will only proceed if there is sufficient interest shown in a topic. If three or more members have registered for a session at the monthly meeting, the training can go ahead.

The committee and members might agree to hold a training seminar on another day or cancel it altogether (typically due to public holiday clashes).

If you have any questions or you would like to suggest a future seminar topic, contact our Training Coordinator, Les Isdale.
Check with the Training Coordinator for more information on future seminars.
