Computer and Networking Technology - Level II

Technology and Health Division
Certificate T0726

The Computer and Networking Technology Level I and II certificate programs prepare students to become computer and networking service technicians. Courses required for the Level I certificate provide foundations in basic electricity and electronics, operating systems, computer service and troubleshooting, and preparation for the A+ certification examination sponsored by CompTIA and offered at testing centers throughout the country. In addition to the Level I certificate requirements, students seeking the Level II certificate cover computer networks, servers, and customer relations, and will take preparatory courses for the CompTIA Network+, Server+, and Security+ certification exams. These industry certifications are recognized worldwide as benchmarks for the computer and networking technician. Further, students will have requisite skills upon which to seek additional I.T. certifications available for the computer and networking fields.
