Training Courses

Today, computers are fast becoming a part of everyday life. Whether you have a computer at home or not, we all interact with some form of computer technology almost every day, from entering a customers details into a database at work, to using an ATM at your local bank.

For many people, starting to use a computer can be a rather daunting and frustrating experience. That's where Thinking Administration Systems (TAS) comes in. Instead of spending months of your precious time trying to learn how to use your Mac/PC's 100's of useful features, let us teach you (Sydney, Australia only). With our highly experienced computer gurus, you could learn in 2 hours what might take you months to learn on your own.

All TAS staff have been using computers since the early to mid 1980's, which not only gives us a great understanding of why the computers of today have evolved the way they have, but also means that we have a firm knowledge of the current Macintosh and Windows operating systems.
