Computer Repair Technology

Based on the industry standard CompTIA A+ Certification, students use the latest technology to learn how modern computer equipment works. Hands-on projects mixed into the high tech curriculum help develop technical expertise for the rapidly growing career opportunities in computer repair, help-desk support, and entry-level networking positions.

Mock job interviews and help desk scenarios help develop the “Soft Skills” needed for face-to-face customer support, helping prepare the students for the important job of troubleshooting both hardware and software issues in a real-world environment.
