Free Digital Training

Iolar Training in conjunction with Limerick Social Service Centre will be running the free Digital Skills for Citizens computer and internet training courses in Limerick, starting in September. This training programme is an initiative of the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment.

These days, increasingly, many government and commercial services are only available online. As a response, the Digital Skills training from the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment aims to give everyone the basic know-how to access the internet and ensure that no one is left behind.

The Digital Skills for Citizens training is particularly useful for people who have little or no experience of using computers and the internet. The courses are open to everyone and will run for two hours per week for five weeks at Limerick Social Service Centre on Henry Street, Limerick. Training is aimed at beginners and new users and gives participants the knowledge, skills and confidence to use the internet.

Participants learn how to use email, websites, look up information, local newspapers, listen to radio programmes and watch TV and videos online. Other modules include learning how to access government services and information, how to pay bills, book flights, make video calls, shop online, use online banking, digital photography, social media, using the agfood.ie website and much more.The learning environment is fun and interesting and learners are encouraged to ask questions and participate fully.

The courses are suitable for beginners, new users, and older learners and are completely free. Access to a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone is helpful, but not essential. An Eircode (postcode) is required to register. Courses will run on Mondays at 9 AM, 11:00 AM, 1:00 PM, 3:00 PM, 5:30 PM and 7:30 PM.
