Foundational Tech

People in discussion in front of a computer

Modern technology enables us to connect with our loved ones more often, more intimately, and at low-to-no cost. More and more essential services have moved online, including job applications, doctors’ appointments—even buying paper towels.

For those of us who struggle with technology—whatever the reason—those connections and services often feel locked away behind a frustrating, scary, insurmountable knowledge gap.

If you’ve ever wished there was a class you could take that would just EXPLAIN it to you once and for all—Join CCTV in our Foundational Technology programs. You’ll be “LOL”ing with the best of ‘em in no time. :)

*note: LOL = “Laughing Out Loud.” 👍

Lessons take place on Mondays from 1-2pm and are held online on Zoom. You can check out our upcoming lessons below.
