Want To Learn More About Technology? AARP Now Offering Free Classes!

Hello there blog readers!

It's been a busy year for AARP Illinois as we've jumped into the "tech space". For a long time our members have told us that they want to stay connected, they want to stay current in the job market, and they want to keep learning about technology.  Ask and you shall receive!


AARP-Microsoft Classes

First for those of you who are interested in learning more about Windows we've partnered with the Microsoft stores in Oak Brook and Schaumburg  to offer a plethora of classes and workshops running through the end of the year.

We've got photo workshops, video workshops, OneDrive classes, Windows 8.1 classes,  and the entire Microsoft Office Suite including PowerPoint, Word, Excel, classes. We've even got classes to help you protect yourself from those pesky viruses and spammers!


Classes in Schaumburg - are still open but are filling quickly.  Check out the schedule here for details on how to sign up.


Classes in Oak Brook  are completely full -- but we're adding more classes all the time-- so add your name to the wait list...or if you're like me and you don't like to wait,  you can attend a free  non-AARP class by checking their store schedule here.  (The content is exactly the same -- but you'll be with the general public rather than with your fellow AARP members.)


 By the way all of our classes and workshops are FREE. I know right?! Pretty awesome, but RSVP is REQUIRED.   We'll provide a device for you to learn on.
