IT 4 Retirees Pty Ltd is a local business providing tailored computer training and support for over 55’s. Our mission is to empower mature aged people to confidently use technology to connect with family, friends and the wider community. Through a personalised service and easy to understand language, local Debbie Amos joined Christine David ( founder) and her team to help people use devices such as mobile phones, iPads, tablets, computers, androids and the internet to connect with the wider world. We aim our services at those who may have the time but perhaps not the opportunity to learn how to use current technology.
Debbie has lived in the Galston area for over 12 years and has always enjoyed helping people discover the benefits of using technology. As Debbie’s 92-year-old mother-in-law said, “you have opened my kitchen to the world”. This was after showing her how to use an iPad and Facetime. Now there are weekly Facetime calls to family in England providing an opportunity to see the grandchildren grow.
Debbie has worked with computers and technology for over 30 years. Starting with the setting up of computer systems at her husband’s company and recently having worked at the Castle Hill Apple store where her knowledge of Apple devices developed even further. The team at IT 4 Retirees uses personalised training methods allowing each client to learn at a pace that suits them.
As each person’s learning needs differ, IT 4 Retirees provide classroom training, private one-on-one lessons in the comfort of your home, telephone support, larger print manuals, speaking engagements for local community groups, a buyer advocacy service to help choose and purchase the right device as well as hints and tips emailed and distributed through social media.
Commencing on the 2nd May 2017, “Getting the most out of your iPad and iPhone” classes are being run at the Galston Club on a Tuesday morning for 1 hour each week for an 8-week period. There will be 2 courses; one that starts at 10am and another at 11.30am. Classes are capped at 10 people per session so that each person receives the one-on-one attention they may need. The cost for an 8-week course is $130 per person.
Whether you are a ‘retiree’ or someone who would just like to get more out of your device, Debbie would love to meet you and help expand your knowledge. To book into any of these classes or have a chat about how IT 4 Retirees can help you to master your devices, please call Christine David on 0401-017-459 or Debbie Amos on 0418-296-217. You will be surprised at how easy it is and how much fun you can have!
