How to Fix Your Own Computer (face to face)

Computer repairs are part of modern life. Many of us have desktops, laptops, and smart devices, but when they break down or act strangely, solutions seem to be limited and often expensive. But they don’t have to be. With a little knowledge and effort, you can fix many of your own computer’s basic problems, regardless of what it is (PC, Mac, or tablet). This course will cover the basics of computer hardware and software, diagnosis of common problems, and solutions so that you can know how to fix everyday issues, talk to and understand technical support, and get your devices up and running. Students are encouraged to bring their own portable devices (laptops or tablet computers). Instructor: Scott Ward.
