The knowledge of computers, laptops, mobile devices, firewalls, routers, software, printers, bridges, access points, app deployment, CIDR to setup networks, Database development (MSSQL and MySQL), programming, packet sniffing, operating systems, policies, malware prevention and analysis and a plethora of other areas is needed before someone goes to work this career field.

So what benefit does the completion of training have on a student?

  • Certifications, certificates and diplomas show the individual has the dedication to learn and obtain qualifications needed in information technology.
  • Hands-on with labs and as an intern to develop skills needed in the workforce.
