Description

Hi,

My name is Warrick, I'm a Professional Computer Technician. 

Have you ever struggled with a slow unresponsive computer? I used to think...'This is as good as it gets, computers get slower the longer you own them, then you buy a new one......that's just life!'. But then as I got older and a little wiser, I learnt to make these machines work the way they were meant to, and what I learnt was not that complicated!

In this course, I am going to show you simple step by step instructions that can turn your computer around and get it back to it's former glory and make it even better! Best of all, after this course, you will be able to boot up or flip open any computer or laptop and carry out the simple operations that I will teach you in this course.

But not only will I teach computer maintenance, I will also show you some ultimate tips and tricks that you will probably use for the rest of your life, due to their simplicity and well.... just sheer awesomeness! You can also expect regular educational announcements every time I update the course with new and useful tutorials. 

So.....  

This course is designed for any person, anywhere, no matter what you do, no matter if your computer is brand new or used!

Put the kettle on, boot up and let's get started!

Regards

Warrick

Computer Technician at Udemy

Hi! My name is Warrick. After qualifying and spending many years with all kinds of computers in many different situations all around the world, I thought it would be a fantastic opportunity to share my knowledge and skills with the Udemy community.

Around  a decade ago I started my professional life in the military where I had experience with all kinds of computers and machines. Today I could be referred to as just a Microsoft "Windows Warrior". As a result of my past experience, I find it is best to deliver my lessons in bite sized chunks and though I try and stay one step ahead of Technology, I find it is always best to walk side by side with my students.
