The new purpose built Training centre is light, spacious, fully air conditioned and equipped with  20” Intel iMacs running the latest Mac OS.  Every delegate has their own machine and work space and all our trainers are fully experienced not just at training, but in real life too. They include experienced designers, printers, graphic artists, web designers and system administrators, so not only do they know how to train, but they understand your type of business as well.

Apple training in wireless classroom

The Wireless Mobile Classroom offers a complete solution that conveniently brings the latest technology to your students, giving them easy access to powerful mobile computers and Internet resources. The Wireless Mobile Classroom combines the management and control of a computer lab, the freedom of portable computers, and the power of the Internet into a simple, affordable, rolling solution. Teachers now have the flexibility to turn any corner of the building into a powerful learning centre.
With the Wireless Mobile Classroom, your students’ access to technology is no longer limited to a single computer lab or classroom. Schools can maximise building space by not having to allocate a special room for a dedicated computer lab, and because the iBooks are on a mobile cart that can easily roll from classroom to classroom, teachers and students in different classrooms can easily share the technology to maximize use.

Schools can also save on electrical wiring costs associated with computer labs, as well as network wiring costs and installation time. You don’t need to tear down walls and reconfigure buildings. With the Wireless Mobile Classroom, you have a cost-effective solution for placing multiple computers in a classroom and enabling students to integrate technology as part of their curriculum.

Please remember the Cancom price promise, if you can find an Apple product at a lower price, from any recognised supplier, we will match or better that price. Education discounts available.
