What Computer Skills Will I Need?
Our online courses require just a few computer skills to get you off and running. You’ll need to be able to connect your computer to the Internet and use a web browser (see minimum requirements above). You’ll also need to be able to send and receive email (including sending messages with files attached), and use a discussion board and chat tool.
