Tech Savvy Seniors – Cloud Computing: Part 1 – Sydney Course

  • Do you ever backup the files on your computer? – No? Then Cloud Computing can help!
  • Have you ever been away from your computer and wanted access to a file? ¬– Yes? Then Cloud Computing can help!

Macquarie Community College operates from a range of venues across North and Western Sydney. We have campuses in Carlingford, Chatswood, Mount Druitt, Richmond and many more. Enrol today or enquire now!
