Seniors helping seniors use computers and the internet


Training FacilitiesTraining room

Most of our training takes place in the Boilerhouse Community Resource Room at The University of Southern Queensland, Ipswich. We have fifteen computers plus a presenter's computer which controls a projector. We also have a networked colour laser printer/scanner and of course a broadband internet connection.

Our teaching philosophy is that the trainer demonstrates procedures through the projector and trainees follow this example, thereby gaining hands-on experience. For most sessions we provide assistant trainers who help anybody who gets behind. Follow the links for details of the Computer Courses and Workshops.

To find the training room, drive in at the MAIN ENTRY at the end of Salisbury Road and continue straight on at the first roundabout. This will take you around the outer perimeter of the campus until you see the Boilerhouse Chimney on your left (Building Q).  Click here for the campus map.  Persons with disabled parking permits may park for free immediately outside the Boilerhouse.  Other members should park for free in the areas labelled P sign(but not in the Pay-and-Display spots on the brow of the hill) ensuring that they have a SeniorNet Workshop card displayed on their dashboard.  This card will be provided to you by your trainer when you first come to a workshop.

Our Boilerhouse Training Facility is provided by The University of Southern Queensland and with the generous assistance of other sponsors.
