Getting Citizens Online
Irish Rural Link is offering a free computer course that takes place at a range of venues around the country. The main objective of Getting Citizens Online is to get more people online. It is aimed at people who have never used the computer before, with the objective of being able to use computer programs such as MS Word, being able to navigate the World Wide Web, searching for information and sending emails. Training is provided by fully qualified Computer Tutors. The course takes place over a five week period with one 2 hour class per week.
We focus on key target groups like older people, jobseekers, people in the rural community, small business owners, persons with disabilities and farm families.
