We love teaching.    And we love teaching our customers that trying something new doesn’t have to be scary.

Our customers love our courses and workshops because we come to your home, retirement residence, seniors’ centre, place of employment or facility, and we have fun while you build the confidence and computer skills to keep up with your work, friends, children, and grandchildren on line.

New Start Computer Training is based in Markham, Ontario and serves York Region, Durham Region and the Greater Toronto Area.
