Free computer classes offered to senior citizens

Senior citizens interested in learning about basic computer operations and the Internet may sign up for free classes offered at Hamilton High School.

The 5-session course is offered to senior citizens who would consider volunteering to be a part of the Seniors and Students Program – a partnership between the Hamilton School District and the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program of Waukesha County. The classes will run from 2:45 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. Oct. 20-24 in a high school computer lab. Sussex community member Tom Hill will provide hands-on training for the course.

“Introduction to Computers and the Internet” is for people who want to learn about basic computer operations and getting started on the web. The class will cover use of:

  • a mouse and keyboard,
  • terminology,
  • drop down menus,
  • the task bar,
  • word processing,
  • search engines,
  • links,
  • e-mail,
  • attachments and
  • digital cameras.

The class also covers security over the web. People who take the course should have a computer and on-line access. Those with typing skills will have an advantage, but it is not required.

Participants will be offered volunteer opportunities that include flexible time frames, various school locations or working from home. Enrollment in each course is limited. Please call (262) 246-1973 ext. 1100 to reserve a seat.

Hamilton High School is located at W220 N6151 Town Line Rd., Sussex.
