SeniorNet runs workshops twice weekly at which a specific topic is presented and practiced.  They operate on a walk-in basis (no booking required) and run from 9-11am (but may extend beyond that time if necessary).  Members pay $5 to attend.  The full programme is found on our Programme page in the full website.


SeniorNet runs full courses, usually of 3 or 4 weeks duration, with fees for most being $25.  You have to inform the Training Enquiries Officer if you wish to attend a course; and when sufficient applicants have been accumulated that course will be scheduled and you will be contacted to confirm your attendance.

The full list of courses can be found on the main Website Courses page

Broadband for Seniors Kiosk

SeniorNet also runs a free course under the Broadband for Seniors (Australian Government Initiative).  The internet kiosk offers the opportunity for older people to discover how the web can play a great part in helping them to stay in touch with friends and family, along with offering access to the wealth of information available online.  

Our normal course consists of four sessions: Introduction to the Computer and Windows; The Internet and how to explore it; Webmail and how to join it; Webmail emails and attachments.  Each session is of ninety minutes duration and is booked on application to Colleen.  The sessions have up to two attendees, and a tutor to guide you.

This course also serves as an Introductory Course for members of SeniorNet.  You do not need to be a member of Seniornet to take advantage of this course.
