Austin Free-Net offers a wide variety of free and fee-based training solutions.
We teach basic computer literacy classes that are focused on creating independent computer users and goal achievement, and we teach advanced computing classes for people who are interested in a career in Information Technology. Our training is offered at prices well below market value.
Computer Literacy and Goal Achievement: Our classrooms focus on the real-life needs of Austin’s under-served populations. Our professional trainers use an individualized, student-centered approach allowing clients to choose the skills they want to learn in order to achieve the goals they set for themselves.
Technology Certification Prep Class: Ideal for individuals who want to start a career in computer technology and work for large or small companies as a member of their Information Technology (IT) staff. Available for a highly discounted rate, students learn the skills needed to become certified in three of the most-required CompTIA certifications.
Austin Free-Net offers computer classes and clinic open to the public for free.
