Hear from Students

Your course has given me the ability to talk and see my family in the Philippines. My wife and grandchildren are so happy and proud to see Grandpa (65 yrs old) join the world of technology! Thank you for your classes and my laptop.

Even though I knew the basics, this class still taught me a lot of things I hadn’t known before. I would definitely recommend it to anyone I know.

Linda

I'm so thankful to be completing this class. It helped me to believe in myself again. I'm going to register for classes at Durham Tech this summer, and because of this class, I now have the equipment and the self confidence I need.

Extremely informative. This instructor is outstanding. Wish I had more teachers like him when I was in school. Excellent teaching style!
