National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
For some time now we have been helping people on the NDIS with everything from setting up their laptop or phone or creating a song playlist! We are passionate about utilising technology to improve livelihoods.
Returning to Work or Transitioning to New Work
For a number of years we have assisted various organisations with assisting teaching new skills and knowledge to people who are transitioning to new work or returning to work under the South Australian Work Cover system.
Please note we do not lock you into any contracts. There are no minimum tuition periods.
You are in complete control of how little or how much you learn.
Whilst we’re happy to teach experienced clients an advanced knowledge of any of our various topics, our specialty lies in helping complete novices get up and running with confidence. We also have considerable experience helping people returning to work after maternity leave or injury. There is no level of knowledge required. You choose whether to go to a basic understanding or further.
Our goal is simply to transition you from your starting point to your desired end goal. Tuition is provided either on a one-on-one tuition basis, or in a small group training session. We generally recommend one-on-one training as this ensures you get the absolute most out of each session, learning exactly what you need to know at your own pace. This will usually save you both time and money, and at the same time allows us to develop a great rapport.
Below is a list of the topics we teach, in no particular order, with links from some for further information. If you want to learn about something technology-related that isn’t on this list, please call Marty on 0421 228 223 or contact us. We’ll always do our best to accommodate your needs.

With so much technology available these days, we can give you some helpful advice and point you in the right direction as to which technology is best for your needs. This in itself can be a whole minefield! Together we’ll break it down and simplify it for you, so that you know exactly what you do and don’t need to learn in order to achieve your desired results.
As mentioned above, there may be more that we can teach you when it comes to technology. You just don’t know what you don’t know. And the more you learn, the more you realise there is to learn. We’ll take the mystery and fear out of this new world of technology, and hold your hand every step of the way to make it as easy as possible for you to learn what you need to know.
We’ve been doing this for many years and so far we’ve never met anyone who didn’t benefit from what they learned with us. Take the first step and contact us or call me (Marty) on 0421 228 223. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
