Commercial Computer IT Training Courses

All our computer IT training courses have been developed as part of the flexible learning service of Merkinch Technology Centre (MTC). Whether you are an absolute beginner or a seasoned user, our easy to follow courses provide a simple solution to bring you up to speed.

See our training diary for computer IT training courses currently on offer and to request a place online. A detailed description of each course can be accessed by clicking the course names next to the calendar.

Bespoke one-to-one computer training sessions (up to 3 hours) can be arranged with our trainer, Martin McLauchlan, who can tailor the training course to your requirements. Companies or organisations can also hire our computer training suite if required for their own use or for Martin to train several candidates from within their own company. If you are interested in any of the above, please fill in our Information Request form.
