We intend to repeat sessions in the spring, so recommend that you pick  ONE session to attend and use the detailed notes on our website to help  you identify the session that is the best fit for your needs.

Sessions are held online and include access to our online forums for additional help after the session is complete.

PTP’s TechCamp Online sessions all follow this general outline:

1. (3 minutes) Introduction to session, presenter, and group
2. (5 minutes) Review session objectives – what does this session cover
3. (37 minutes) Teach skills enumerated in session objectives. We will  teach each skill as follows:

o Presenter will explain the skill
o Presenter will demonstrate the skill
o Participants will have a few minutes to practice skill/ask questions
o Presenter will repeat demonstration

4. We will go down the list of skills, following this method. At the end  of the skill instruction, we will have 15 minutes that are available for additional practice and questions for any interested participants. The
extra practice and questions are completely optional.

Intermediate level sessions feature more flexibility and a tighter focus  on questions from participants. If you have specific skills you are would like to see covered, please follow the instructions sent to you
when you register. While we can’t accommodate all requests, we will do our best to address your questions

Cost for each session is $20. Sign up now or contact us with any questions you have.

Don’t forget about Publisher training in March, PowerPoint in April, and graphics basics using Paint.NET in May. Details at
