One hundred Victorians over the age of 55 will be given vouchers for free Internet training and Net access under a state government scheme launched today.
Under the ACE (Adult and Community Education) Internet Voucher Scheme, vouchers will be given to the first 100 eligible people to call (03) 9637 2684.
Each voucher provides for five hours of Internet training and 10 hours of free Internet access at community education organisations in Victoria.
"Older learners are the fastest growing demographic group using making use of computers. This voucher is their ticket to pursue that interest," said Phil Honeywood, Minister for Tertiary Education and Training, at the launch today.
