Apple-Q runs two types of training events each month (except December) – mini-seminars on the regular meeting day and training day seminars a week later.
Mini-seminars on Meeting Days
We normally run mini-seminars at the regular monthly meeting ranging from a few minutes on a useful tip or app to the main presentation of the day (between 15 and 45 minutes in duration).
These seminars are free for members and first-time visitors.
The details of these seminars are normally published on this site in the weeks leading up to the meeting. They are also emailed to members in the days before the meeting and listed in the monthly Apple-Bug Magazine.
Training Day Seminars
Apple-Q generally runs these training seminars on the fourth Sunday of the month. The topics are chosen by out members and are run if we have an organiser (fellow member with knowledge in that area).
These seminars may cover a range of topics, such as:
- an introduction to Apple Devices (Mac, iPad, iPhone, etc);
- Operating System basics (macOS, iPadOS, iOS);
- useful apps (photos, movies, web, genealogy, office, etc;
- How To – Hands on activities including our Apple-Q HowTo Tutorials;
- Open Source & Freeware apps & utilities (installation & how to use);
- Help Sessions (bring along you (Apple) problems and we will try to solve them);
- and much more
Topics for upcoming training seminars are discussed at the regular monthly meetings.
These Training sessions are only available to Apple-Q & Be Connected* Members or first time attendees.
*Be Connected members that are registered with us may attend for the first hour of each training session free of charge.
Training will only proceed if there is sufficient interest shown in a topic. If three or more members have registered for a session at the monthly meeting, the training can go ahead.
The committee and members might agree to hold a training seminar on another day or cancel it altogether (typically due to public holiday clashes).
