Neumann University is hosting free technology training classes being offered by Senior Lift, a nonprofit organization that has been teaching technology skills to seniors for 12 years. It has recently opened its programs to the unemployed and underemployed.

Classes include Smartphone Basics, Computer Basics, and introductory sessions on Microsoft Word, Excel, Windows 10, PowerPoint, Google Drive, and social media. There is even a class being taught on basic tech terms and symbols.

The classes started in November and run through April 2022 on Monday and Wednesday afternoons from 4-6 p.m. in the technology lab on the third floor of the Abessinio Building.

According to the organization’s website, “Senior Lift’s primary focus has centered around training and equipping older adults to abandon their fears and dislikes for learning technologies in exchange for the opportunity to gain new technology skills that will empower them.”

Neumann University is eager to partner with Senior Lift by offering our data lab and technology facilities to help people gain the skills they need to communicate in an increasingly digital society and marketplace,” said Eric Wellington, dean of Neumann’s School of Business.
