JOB DESCRIPTION

In the first instance volunteers would be asked to assist current tutors as they help SeniorNet members with computer problems.  Volunteers are also needed to assist senior members in the use of computers, tablets, smart phones and other electronic devices.  It would also be helpful if the volunteer could bring current tutors up to date with new technology by running short courses.

SUPERVISION AND TRAINING
