Flash Classes may be held via Zoom or in person. See class listing for details.

The idea behind Flash Classes is that they are over in a Flash. Each class focuses on a single, narrowly-defined topic and will generally last 45-60 minutes. New classes are scheduled monthly so check back regularly to see the lastest offerings. 

  • Classes are now being held either via Zoom or in the Computer Center. See class    listing for details.
  • Classes are available ONLY to members of the Computer Club of Rossmoor.
  • Classes are free of charge to current members.
  • Depending on the topic covered, class size is generally limited to 10 -15 students   for  classes held via Zoom. For classes held in the Computer Center, class size is generally limited to 10.
  • If your desired class is full, add your name to the Wait List. Those on the Wait List are often able to attend due to cancellations. Classes with long Wait Lists generally will be repeated the following month.

Just follow these easy steps to enroll: 

  • Click the link shown above in the class description (or click the blue Enroll button)
  • On the log-in page, enter your email address and this password: flashclass (if you have set your own, unique password, enter that instead).
  • Click "Register." After clicking "Next" a couple of times, you will then see the "Confirm" button. Click it and you're done!

Once you're registered for the class, you will receive a confirmation and Zoom link, as well as reminders when the date nears. And, if the class is full, you will be offered an option to add your name to the Wait List.
