MAC OS Training

After my time in school which was 99% Windows.  I want to know if anyone knows a site to get free training courses for the MAC OS?  Thank you for your help.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi Carlos,

A good question that I faced myself several years ago. I've found that it's common for people to just assume that everyone should just know how to use a MAC because they're (arguably) so "intuitive" to use, but that never rang true for me the first time I sat down with one. I think moving to a MAC when coming from a Windows environment can often be quite a handicap for a lot of people.

Paid courses are plentiful, but I'm not aware of many "free" courses for using the MAC OS. That said, there's a lot of helpful hints and tips to be found at the following resources which are free;

"Meet your MAC" resource from Apple
"Free Apple MAC Computer Lessons" at
"OS X Basics Tutorials" at GFC Learn Free

Hope that's of some help to you.

Hi Carlos,

One of our experts created a course titled "Mac Basics: Mastering Your Mac For Home & Business." He's knowledgeable and very responsive so if you have any questions as you go through the course I'm sure he'd be more than willing to help.

It's not a free course, but pretty affordable for all the subject matter that's covered. There is a discount for Premium members.

You can find it here:

All the best,

Your local library probably has introductory computer books. I would look there. They might even have e-books which can be borrowed without leaving your home, depending on how advanced the library is.

I believe Mr. Leniart's and Mrs. Wooddell's answers were the closest to what I was looking for.
Many thanks to Mr. Lyon's for his suggestion.
