About Computer Classes
TechCentral conducts classes for the public on a variety of computer related topics. Classes are held in TechCentral, the TechCentral Computer Lab, and at the local neighborhood branches. Classes are free and open to the public. Many classes are offered as four or five part series and take about one month to complete.
We recommend registering for a class but walk-ins are welcomed. You can register over the phone or in person. For registration by phone call TechCentral at (216) 623-2980. To register in person visit the TechCentral in the Main Library or one of our 27 locations throughout the city.
