Classes in Grey Lynn

 Apple Mac, iPad, iPhone Training
The Grey Lynn Sessions
Affordable training in a sociable group environment, the Grey Lynn Sessions last one hour minimum. They take place at Grey Lynn Community Centre, 510 Richmond Rd Grey Lynn, which is near the North Western Motorway (Western Springs turnoff). The GL Centre has ample parking.

The training goes from whoa to pro in ten sessions at low cost. It’s the interactive and friendly way to learn about your Apple devices. The sessions start at 7:35pm and run till about 8:40.

The sessions are inclusive and friendly, and foster open discussion. You can bring your Mac (if it’s a laptop) and iDevice to the iPhone/iPad session. The sessions are backed up by Tip Sheets for you to take away.
