This program is designed to give the students hands on experience in a high tech lab while using state-of-the-art equipment. Students can work at their own pace on many of the projects.
Computer Technology I - IT Essentials
The IT Essentials course covers the fundamentals of computer hardware and software and advanced concepts such as security, networking, and the responsibilities of an IT professional it it designed for students who want to pursue careers in ICT (Information and Communication Technology) and students who want to gain practical knowledge of how a computer works.
Students who complete course will be able to describe the internal components of a computer, assemble a computer system, install an operating system, and trouble shoot using system tools and diagnostic software. Students will also be able to connect to the Internet and share resources in a networked environment.
New topics in this version include mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones and client side visualization. Expanded topics include security, networking , and troubleshooting.
Computer Technology II - CCENT
The two modules in this course, The Introduction of Networks and Routing & Switching Essentials, will prepare you for the CCENT exam.
CCENT is the stepping stone to the CCNA. It covers topics that you would expect an entry-level technician to know, including the OSI model, DNS basics, NAT, routing, and router configuration.
By the end of Intro to Networks, you will be able to build simple LANs, perform basic configurations for routers and switches, and implement IP addressing schemes.
By the end of R&S Essentials, you will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with RIPv1, RIPv2, single-area and multi-area OSPF, virtual LANs, and inter-VLAN routing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
The key to mastering these skills is hands on labs. You will use both packet tracer and in class networking equipment to become proficient.
