We all have different skill levels when it comes to using a Mac*. And that is OK. However, there are times that you want to skip all the blog posts about proper malware removal and how to use a command-line because you just want to find more information on how to use your mail program more efficiently. At the same time, if you are really proficient with a Mac because you have used it for years, a blog post on how to export items to a PDF is not something that interests you. If you are looking for bespoke OSX* training, call us now!
We have created skill levels for easy navigation. You may actually be in more than one level at the same time. I personally am an expert at photo databases and software troubleshooting, though I am only an advanced beginner when it comes to 3D animation software.
We will let you decide what level you are in. No judgements.
This level is for those people who have never really had a need for a computer but now have found that it is needed in everyday life. Your skills are most likely in other areas and there is no shame in that. (Kevin’s worst student was a brain surgeon!)
No tutorial will ever put you in a situation where you can harm your computer, EVER. So be fearless and try them out without the stress of breaking anything.
