I have learnt Cat 5 cabling as well as recabling an office. I have helped in the rollout of new operating systems, microsoft office, endpoint to a computer suite and offices and the updating of the server. I studied a diploma course at Ricmond college in Web Technologies and ustilised the skills I learnt to develop and maintain local charity websites using E-Voice a CMS platform, I help give training, advice and support on E-voice courses both beginner and advanced and helped to give training and advice to a class of pensioners in Croydon and help and support a group from the Carer`s network starting with On-line training.
