Hands on workshops

Want to learn how to get the most out of your Mac? Attend one of these paid workshops at our Victoria Store and get hands on tuition with John Giles, an Apple Certified Professional.


“I write to heartily recommend his teaching and instructional ability. Being a computer illiterate and a recent convert to Apple.”

“I really enjoyed MAC 101, learned a lot. Gave me a lot more confidence since there is a bit of a learning curve switching from a PC to a MAC. 
Thank you!!”

“I have no hesitation in recommending both the Simply Computing Store and the 
qualities of Mr. Giles as both have been exemplary.”
