Computer Classes

The Licking County Aging Program (LCAP) in partnership with the East-Central Ohio Technology Users Club (ECOTUC) [previously known as the Licking County Computer Society] provide a variety of computer classes for the senior citizens in the LCAP service area.

These classes are taught by members of the ECOTUC in a classroom setting with 12 student computers. The classes are held in the renovated LCCS/LCAP Technology Resource Center located at 123 S. Third St. in downtown Newark, Ohio.

Classes are offered in a wide range of topics from “Computer Basics for the Total Beginner” to specialized topics such as Word Processing and Spreadsheets, and a new class called “What’s Left?”  Check with the receptionist for all the classes and their descriptions. To provide the best learning experience, classes are held three times a week for two hours each day, and for just two weeks.  Beginning in March and running through late October, classes are offered twice a year during March/April/May (Spring session) and August/September/October (Fall session) with summer months offering individualized help at different times. No classes are offered over the winter months of November through February.

When you find a class you would like to take, stop by Heritage Hall and pick up a registration form.  Classes only cost $20 for the twelve hours of training.

Checks made payable to LCCS. 

You can also mail check (made out to LCCS) with the class registration form to:
