Free Upcoming Courses Announced for Fall 2020 and Spring 2021

At our second annual TTJ Tech Summit, which was held on Saturday, July 25, The Tech Juggernaut revealed its plans for the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 Training Season. This year promises to be our best ever, with something for everyone! All our courses will be completely updated for iOS and iPad OS 14 and all its features. Our Voiceover course will begin earlier this year and will provide the most thorough and in-depth training we’ve offered thus far. Our flagship iPad course, completely redesigned for iPad OS 14, will provide 12 weeks of training, and will cover the most extensive curriculum of any of our courses so far. We will also further enhance the learning experience by providing several mini courses on subjects like cutting the cord, home automation, and keeping your identity private and secure in the digital world. Finally, we are pleased to offer, for the very first time, a separate course on the Mac, as well as mini courses on AppleTV, HomePod, and Apple Watch. We’ll round out this years offerings with a mini course on Apple Pay, electronic payments, and tips for financial success.

The TTJ Instructor Team is already hard at work, testing and learning the new software versions, so we’re fully prepared to offer the same level of training and support you have come to expect. As in past years, classes will be held live, using online conferencing software, and will also feature a digital learning platform, to facilitate the distribution of audio and video tutorials, written documentation, web links. Assignments, discussions, and more. The combined total of live and on-demand instruction will provide hundreds of hours of useful resources, created by certified instructors with the passion for helping others learn about these life-changing and empowering Apple products. Perhaps best of all, is the fact that these courses will remain completely free for all students. There are no entrance fees, no subscriptions, and no purchase necessary. For those who wish to go beyond what is taught in our courses, or for those who need individualized training, other training and support packages are available for a fee.

Classes are set to take place on Mondays and Wednesdays, beginning September 14, 2020, and running through May 26, 2021. Registration opens Monday August 10, 2020, so get ready, and stay tuned for more information.
