How much do classes cost?
With your free Computer Education Membership, you get special discount. Your first 5 class credits are only $24 each. Then, each subsequent class credit is $26 each.
Each 2-hour class "session" costs one credit. So for example, our "Using Facebook" class which is two-sessions would cost two class credits.
Also note that classes that are NOT hands-on with the computer all all priced at only $24 per session. Those classes include...
-- Getting Started with Windows 8
-- Using Your iPad & iPhone
-- iPad & iPhone Workshops
-- Using Your Digital Camera
Finally, you can retake any class for 1/2 price (either $13 for regular classes or $12 for non-hands-on classes).
Can I pre-pay and get discounted class credits?
Yes! After you have taken your first 5 class sessions (at $24 each), you can continue to get that same $24 class session rate by pre-purchasing 5 class credits for $120.
Pre-purchased credits never expire, and we will keep track of them for you!
When do I pay for classes?
You pay for a class at the computer lab when you attend the class.
If for some reason you are unable to attend a class you have registered to take, you are NOT charged for that class.
