If we have an upcoming "open" class it will be listed below.  Most classes are held upon request rather than having a specific schedule.  For classes in the US a minimum of five people are required.  For classes outside the US a minimum of eight people are required.


All classes require that the student be familiar with Windows and some classes require the student to bring a notebook computer to class.  If an asterisk ("*") follows the date, each attendee must bring a notebook computer to the class.
