Computer training for Mac users at Higher Ed

Cook County Higher Education will offer training in the use of a Macintosh computer on Tuesday, Sept. 24.

Jim Ringquist of Times Two Design in Grand Marais will lead a class for beginning to intermediate Mac users from 6-9 p.m. at Higher Ed’s North Shore Campus, 300 W. Third St., Grand Marais.

Ringquist has been using, upgrading and repairing Macs since 1985. His class –  designed,  he says, to help you use your Mac more effectively and efficiently –  will cover such topics as Mountain Lion Basics; quick and easy eMail including filtering out spam; spaces; Safari; utilities; and customizing your Mac.

Ringquist says he can cover advanced topics if he knows in advance that there is a need for it. Higher Ed recently did an inquiry asking what people would seek in a Mac class, and all of the responses were forwarded to him to help guide his curriculum development. If you have a specific topic you wish covered, please let him know.

To register for the Mac class call 387-3411 or email highered@northshorecampus.org. Cost for the class is $60.

Students are asked to bring their own Mac laptop; Higher Ed has no Mac laptops to loan.
