FREE Workshops June 2008 and More…. May 22, 2008

Posted by ctcoberon in Uncategorized.

Many thanks to those people who attended our Cyber Safety Workshop last week, for without your support, the CTC would not receive its grant from the NSW Government, for conducting this very important workshop. Please, next time you hear about an important workshop at your CTC, do not hesitate to sign-up, as your participation will help fund our on-going activities. Also, anyone who attended and who would like to learn more about the subject matters and processes discussed at the workshop, can do so, by coming along to any of our weekly computer sessions (Tuesdays with Maree Arrow, Wednesdays with Julie Stott and Thursdays with yours truly).

FREE Workshop:

  • Your CTC has been approved, to once again, run two free and important workshops between 6 & 13 June on e-security. And like we have stated above, we will only receive our granted if we get the required numbers i.e. ten (10) people per workshop. Maree Arrow and myself, will be conducting the two workshops (on 10 & 12 June respectively), and it is important that you book your place A.S.A.P. (by phoning 6336-0666) just in case we get a large number wishing to attend. For more information about all our weekly activities, upcoming courses and other important happenings during 2008 please visit our blog (https://ctcoberon.wordpress.com).

The 5 June is World Environment Day, and the slogan for 2008 is; “Kick the Habit – Towards a Low Carbon Economy”. Community Technology Centres across NSW are very much part of this goal, with their ability to reduce the need for rural people to travel to larger centres to access services, and their ability to reduce consumption by sharing of expensive and short-lived ICT resources. More information about World Environment Day can be obtained by go to (www.unep.org/wed). Please note; your CTC provides FREE Internet access to all NSW Government Departments.

MoneyMinded Online: This is a free, interactive online course. The development of this course was initiated and funded by ANZ with contributions from the community sector and education experts, including the Australian Financial Counselling and Credit Reform Association. It does not, however contain any ANZ branding or promotion but provides unbiased consumer education. The course is suitable for individuals as a self paced study, and for groups. Topics covered include; Planning and Saving, Everyday Finances, Loans and Credit, Super Future and Investment Basics. To find more about this course point your browser at (www.moneyminded.com.au/about/online/). Come into the CTC to do the course on our FAST internet computers.

April was another good month for attendance at the CTC with 270 visitors/users, but remember CTC visitors/users does not always correlate to number of people, if the CTC is booked by an outside group, they are counted as one (1) user. Please note; if your group is a non-profit organisation you can hire the CTC conference room for free, when available. Our equipment hire service was extremely busy and various groups like Oberon Leisure, Art’s Council and Bathurst Employment placed bookings and or used our conference rooms. Plus, we had another visit from the Bathurst and Orange CTC Progress Groups who came once again to look at our facilities.
