Program Overview

Student will gain skills that should prepare them to pass industry certification exams including Microsoft, Cisco, and CompTIA. Successful completers will be a valuable asset to corporate IT departments that utilize Microsoft networks, or Cisco routers and switches, and PC computing hardware and software. Students will complete a Technical Skills Assessment to demonstrate program competency. 

Students must complete the first semester of classes and meet with the program advisor before they will be admitted to the program. Program admissions and major changes will be evaluated by faculty the fourth week of October and March. The first two semesters of the program are the required courses for the Computer Support Technical Certificate and students must complete and apply for that Certificate before enrolling in the Network Systems courses.
