Get Down to Basics
Do you have a little bit of knowledge, but just enough to get yourself in trouble?
Does the idea of learning about hardware, software, the internet — oh my! — feel overwhelming?
Skilled instructor Will Berkley has been working with computers for most of his life and teaching others how to become more comfortable with them for nearly a decade.

If you’ve been looking for a low-pressure and fun way to join the digital revolution, Will’s class is for you.

I teach various computer skills classes for Continuing Education; a basic Windows class and classes in the Office Suite. I’ve been teaching for about nine years.
What's your educational & professional background?
My background is software testing, quality assurance, and software project management.
I have a degree in Intercultural Studies, have visited about a dozen countries and lived overseas for about three years. I enjoy visiting new places and meeting new people.
What do you enjoy the most about teaching your classes at Seattle Central?
I love to learn and I love to help others learn. Those “aha!” moments are the best, whether I experience them myself or see them on the faces of my students.
