IT Courses For Seniors By Seniors
RSVP Singapore’s IT courses are specially designed to cater to the learning needs of seniors. They are conducted by experienced Volunteer Trainers and Assistant Trainers who are also seniors. These trainers are able to adapt and tailor the courses to suit the learning pace of senior participants. With a wide range of courses available, from “Basic Computer” courses to lifestyle-related courses (e.g. Facebook, Digital Video Management, mobile devices), there is something suitable for each senior. IT Courses are available in English and Mandarin. Our classes are conducted at our Silver Infocomm Junction @ Bishan and Toa Payoh Public Library.
NEW! As at 1 January 2019, all IT courses at RSVP Singapore are subsidised by National Silver Academy and cost only $10 – $20! Download our full NSA IT course listings here.
An anchor programme of RSVP since 1998, Cyberguide aims to promote IT skills among seniors and help them overcome the digital divide. Over the years, our volunteer trainers and assistant trainers have conducted courses for thousands of seniors at the RSVP Infocomm Centre at our Bishan premises and various offsite locations. RSVP Singapore’s reputation in teaching seniors IT skills has helped us garner many achievements. We became the first Infocomm Media Development Authority of Singapore (IMDA)-appointed Silver Infocomm Junction in November 2007.
RSVP Singapore is also a Certiport-certified testing centre in Singapore. Participants train under RSVP Singapore and sit for an examination before being certified as Microsoft Office 2007 Specialists.
