Why should I do this course?
The world is rapidly changing. Digital skills are becoming a necessity for the modern era.
The global pandemic highlighted the vulnerability of whānau who were unable to order groceries or medications online, get help, access essential services, or communicate online.
With banks closing branches and the potential for future lockdowns, there are many reasons to start learning digital skills for the modern era.
Although this course was designed with Māori, Pasifika and people with disabilities in mind, it is open to all New Zealanders who need digital skills training.
