We have some exciting new courses added to our lineup on ITonRamp.com.
The Internet, just like an iPhone, is a powerful, yet potentially dangerous tool. Your web browser is what you use to access Internet resources. Do you know how to safely browse the net? Do you know how to leverage it to make browsing easier? Have you accidentally mis-typed an address and ended up where you wish you hadn’t?
In this 2-week course, which begins Tuesday, July 21st, Nathan teaches you through live webinars how to use the Internet safely and effectively. I firmly believe it is a “must” for every Christian family. You can sign up here.
Business Jump Start
September 30th-October 28th
Many desire to have a home business, but in a dog-eat-dog-world, it can be difficult. My dad, Steve, small business owner since 1997, has a wealth of practical experience. Although you know my dad through our Titus2 ministry, you probably didn’t know he worked in corporate America for many years before he began his own business. It’s been an incredible journey!
Business Jump Start is not just an online course. The weekly mentor contacts will be by Skype (video calls), and the homework projects will be tailored specifically to your business and needs. Due to how customized this course will be for your business, course sign ups will close at least one week before the start date. In addition, we may need to limit registrations, so don’t delay in signing up!
“With the advice and instruction I received from Steve, I have been able to better understand the business world. My business has become more organized, efficient, and I make almost twice as much as I did before, as a result of his business experience.” Brandon
Mac OS X Support Essentials
Part 1, September 15-October 20th
Part 2, October 27th-December 8th
Nathan’s advanced A+ course has helped many young people and parents learn Windows computers and how to repair them, and some have gone on to begin a career in the IT industry because of it. Now, Nathan’s excited to offer a Mac equivalent, split into two courses.
It seems Apple’s computers are gaining market share by leaps and bounds, and supporting them is much different than a Windows computer. Whether you’re a casual user who wants to learn your Mac computer, or you’d like to become skilled to support Mac computers in your business, these new courses are sure to help. To view the comprehensive scope, or to sign up, visit these links: Part 1 and Part 2.
We’re continually gaining new readers on our blog. As a result, you may be scratching your head and asking, “What is ITonRamp.com, and how does it have to do with the Maxwells?”
In 2011, Nathan, my oldest brother (now approaching 40!), launched ITonRamp, with the blessing and help of the entire family. IT stands for Information Technology and onRamp means we want to be your on ramp–your launching pad–to learning these crucial skills. Nathan started officially in the computer industry when he was 17, teaching computer courses at a local store. He quickly went on to working for corporations as an IT support person and then eventually became self-employed. With our Titus2 ministry, Nathan was aware of young people who were floundering, not having purpose and not knowing how to gain income-producing skills. As a result, Nathan began ITonRamp, with the goal of teaching these skills to young people. In addition, parents have also taken courses: moms desiring to become confident computer users and dads wishing to change their career.
Our next course date for our foundational, five-week Computer Essentials begins Tuesday, July 14th, so you can still sign up. This is a perfect course for a family to do together!
“So teach us to number our days,
that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.”
