Connections is now offering FREE online courses. Currently, we are running online classes in QuickBooks Online and Container Gardening. Don’t worry if you have missed the start of these courses, just give us a call or an email to register, as they will be available on an ongoing basis. Contact details at the bottom of this blog or on our Contact Us page.

We are working on three other programs that should come online, one at a time, starting in late June. We are already taking advance registrations, through both of our sites, for Digital Scrapbooking, Excel Basics and Improving your Reading While Studying for the G1 Licence Test. See the details of these programs further below.

What makes our online training options worthwhile, other than the fact they are free, is our friendly, knowledgeable instructors, who are always willing to help. They can be available to assist you by phone, email or online written, audio or video chat. These meetings and chats may be carried out individually and/or with a class group. Your successful completion of your learning is very important to all of us.
