On-Site and Remote Software Training
for Law Firms, Government Agencies, and Individuals

CompuSavvy provides hands-on computer training throughout California.

And we offer remote training (webinars), too!

for Small Groups and Individuals

Let us help you get the most out of your software. We'll teach you the features you most need to know, such as:

We've been working with law firms — both as trainers and as legal word processors with vast experience formatting a variety of legal documents — for nearly three decades, so we understand your computing needs. We take the time to answer your questions, and we explain things in plain English! Plus, we provide lots of handy "cheat sheets" you can refer to long after the formal training has ended. And we'll show you lots of time-saving tips and shortcuts.

Advantages of On-Site Training

Many people find on-site training more convenient than lab classes conducted in a computer training center. It's more economical, too! Plus, you can focus on the specific topics and features you most want to learn. Best of all, you get our undivided attention!

Advantages of Remote Training

Remote training costs less than on-site training, and it's a good option for organizations and individuals located outside California. We can provide remote training for up to five people.

Discounted One-on-One Training for Legal Secretaries

We also provide discounted training for legal secretaries or paralegals who want to brush up on their skills—on their own dime. Typically, we conduct one-on-one sessions on weekends at a mutually agreeable location.
