we want your computers to simply work

Code & Chips providing home and business users with quality and value in computer support and repairs since 1996.

Workshops designed by you, for you.

At Code and Chips we have worked hard to create workshops designed by you, for you. Our customers told us they preferred targeted learning courses to address their individual needs with a range of skills and levels. So we created Code and Chips Workshops.

Code and Chips Workshops offer a 'Workshop Builder' where our customers can pick any modules to create a completely custom learning experience to meet their exact needs. For example, Anne just bought a new smart phone and wanted to learn how to edit, manage and share her photographs. She also wanted to take her Microsoft Excel skills to the next level for work. Lastly she wanted to learn to use Skype to talk to her best friend, who had just emigrated to America. So Anne selected all her chosen modules in the Workshop Builder to create a two day course completely tailored to her requirements. 

Michael was planning to start his own business, but wanted to advance his office and networking skills first. He chose the intermediate office skills pack with networking for small businesses on a custom 5 day workshop. 

All our workshop customers have enjoyed building their existing skills as well as developing new ones, giving them the knowledge and confidence to move forward. Why not get a free quote with our workshop builder today?
