Sessions are charged per hour and are backed up with a step by step guide for future reference. There are no long term contracts or minimum sessions needed. We work on the basis that if it is useful to you, you will use the service again. Sessions can involve up to 3 people so they become more cost effective and a one hour session costs £20 (we don’t charge for travel to your house unless it is more than 20 miles from the office).

The client generally identifies the training areas they wish to work on prior to the session and Paul will build a lesson plan so that these areas can be addressed in the training. We can provide a limited range of equipment to give you the opportunity to try it out to decide if it is right for you. Paul is not affiliated to any shops or companies but he can offer support in finding the right equipment at the right price for a client.

Some people prefer to learn alongside others and there are a number of courses covering a variety of technology based topics available. Each course is a set price and is usually spread over a number of weeks to enhance the learning experience. There will be no more than 12 people on any course at a time. Please see the give us a call on 07990 578684 for details on future courses.
