What is Training at
'Training' with PCUG is definitely a unique
experience for each of us, as we have varied skills and knowledge,
therefore seeking varied levels of information and support. A
more appropriate question is 'What
Learning Opportunities exist at PCUG?'
Our members come to the group with varied skill levels. Some are
beginners. Some are advanced. But at some stage or another,
everyone can learn something. We learn from each other, hence our motto
"Users Helping Users" is as much about what you can give, as what you
So how can we learn and what
do we offer?
PCUG offers a variety of SIGs (special
interest groups) for social and learning opportunities.
Facilities at the PCUG Centre:
The PCUG centre has facilities to
experiment and develop skills 'hands
on' via a variety of
specialised and general equipment for members to access. This may
support teaching, or practicing of skills.
The training room is equipped with 1 trainer and 11 student computers
with an overhead projector and whiteboards. The operating system uses a
virtual environment which is easy to manage, so we can cater for users
with a wide variety of interests. The media room has digital
media and sound equipment. Just being at the centre can bring
unknown opportunities via who you may run into. Drop in and join us for

information'. Details of classes are generally advertised in the PCUG
Newsletter, and on the PCUG Calendar of Events. Bookings of the training room & media
room are made via the PCUG office. Link
