Free IT Courses for Taxi Drivers

NWTP are offering free IT courses for taxi drivers or self-employed people in the Derry area or anyone willing to travel to attend the course.

 

This is a beginner course for Taxi Drivers & self-employed people. Given that all Government Services will be moving online including Taxi Driver, Vehicle & Operator Licensing we believe that we should offer some support to help people become IT literate and move with the times.

 

We encourage Taxi Drivers who have no IT skills to attend this course. We are starting from scratch.

The course will focus mainly on Smart Mobile Phones and iPads or tablets.

 

In this course you will learn to use your email. If you do not have an email, then we will help you to set one up and put it on your phone. We will show you how to use Google Maps. We will also show you how to look at news and You Tube. We will show you how to use your Wi-fi and how to find Wi-fi hotspots. We will tell you what the ‘do’s and don’t’s of Social Media’ are and we will advise you on how to avoid online scams.

 

If you are interested, then contact North West Taxi Proprietors (NWTP) on 02871362556 or email eamonn@nwtp.org

 Learning Taxi Theory 

We have changed the way we are working with people to help them pass their Theory & Practical Taxi Tests. We are now running a weekly class on Wednesday mornings. Everyone passing this course has been offered a job. This course has been very successful in putting people into self-employment.

The Taxi Theory Course was a 3-day course, but we have now changed that to a weekly class.

 

We now email most of the course out to people and then run a weekly class covering different aspects of the theory test. Anyone interested should contact us on 02871362556.

 

More than 30 people have passed their Taxi Theory Test in the last year after completing the Taxi Courses developed by the Community Support Initiative to help people.

 

We have also begun to develop a distance learning Taxi Course that involves getting the materials by email and following up by phone or Skype. This is in the early stages and not operational just yet. We hope to Skype the classes.

 

​If you are interested give us a call.
