Apple Macs are known for their simplicity, style and reliability, just like your iPhone and iPad. In this course we’ll begin with the basics, including how to work with files and folders, getting online with Safari and Mail, as well as keeping your Contacts, Calendars, Notes and To Dos organised. We’ll talk about organising your Photo and Music libraries and how to send and receive messages and phone calls.
We’ll discover how to work with Office documents, create movie and music projects, and install new apps. Then we’ll learn how to find information using Spotlight and Siri, how to keep your Mac secure and backed up, and also how to change settings to your preferences. Finally, we’ll explore how your Mac integrates with your iPhone/iPad/Apple Watch, as well as an assortment of top tips and tricks. Whether you’ve never used a Mac before or just want to brush up on some new skills, BigRockDesigns are here to take you step-by-step through how to use the Mac operating system.
This course can be successfully completed by anyone with a standard level of ICT knowledge and skills.

I attended the BigRockDesigns introduction to Mac course. The course was extremely well organised with loads of exercises to follow. I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn how to get the most from your Mac.
Its not essential, but we would recommend it.
We use iWorks in the course and would recommend a copy of it on your own computer.
