Seniors can take computer courses at local colleges or universities through a continuing education program that offers free and discounted courses. Seniors can also find computer courses by contacting the local Department of Aging to identify government-sponsored courses for older adults that may be hosted at schools or community centers.
Some nursing homes and assisted living centers sponsor computer training. Seniors can also inquire at computer retail stores to find out about available computer courses that may focus on hardware or specific software, such as Microsoft programs or Internet-based applications. Online courses are also available from government agencies or senior organizations, such as SeniorNet.org or SeniorsGuidetoComputers.com.
