SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: Strathfield College announces the opening of a technology centre in response to the current needs of the education sector and the rapidly growing demands for technology services in Australia.

The SC Technology Centre (SCTC) is located in the heart of the Sydney CBD at 451 Pitt St. Sydney. SCTC will start offering courses such as PC to Apple Mac Transition and iWork for Business and Education.

Apple devices and services are market leaders and there are many people ready to jump on board with a little help. Apple products enjoyed a 20% increase in sales in the US market in 2009 and Mac OS has increased its market share by 30% in the last year in Australia.

“The future of the SCTC project is immense and we are predicting a growing need for short intensive courses in Apple devices, such as iMovie, iLife for business users, education institutions, High School teachers and students, and professional programmers with the development of app courses” announced the General Manager of SCTC, Laura Mao.

These courses have been designed to meet the needs of business professionals and schools educators who can not attend long courses. “That is why the short courses of one day duration are perfect for business people, teachers and students” Laura Mao says. The SCTC team is confident in reaching the market with a compelling product and has developed the courses with expert and experienced trainers who will also deliver them.

The first two courses – PC to Mac Transition and iWork for Business and Education – will be offered on March 21 and 22, 2011. The courses will run from 10:00am to 4:30pm, and will include a light lunch break.

Those attending the PC to Mac Transition course will quickly become comfortable with using the Mac Operating System and will see immediate office skills from the knowledge and experience gained in this course.

The iWork for Business and Education course shows trainees how to produce spreadsheets and present data with graphics, create professional documents for business or education presentations, be able to create invoices, letterheads, flyers, brochures and much more.
