Computer Workshops

Welcome to Computer Workshops at Nimrod Centre.

Computers Hardware

A number of disused PCs available - Take one apart, check out the hardware, how it functions, change components, get it working, test its operation. Do this with a purpose - maybe get to be a computer service technician. There is Free IT Technician Intro Course at kanduit.co.uk. There are sets of videos for CompTIA training at professormesser.com.
CompTIA Certifications are here.

Computers Operation

Setting to work of (rebuilt) PCs with internet connection - Download and installation of Ubuntu Desktop. Go back to basics - get an understanding, a mental model, of the way computers operate.
There is the EMU8086 Original Microprocessor Emulator with help and examples.
And there is the DOSBox DOS emulator - Run classic games.

Computers Networking

Get hands-on with ongoing in-house terminal server projects. Several PCs available as servers, good to go networked with other PCs set up as thin clients. Lots of instructional stuff available and lots more to get to know - do some installation and setup work to get started. Maybe get to be a Computer Network Technician.
