Answer: Yes. When registering for the IT Support Technician program, full tuition is due up front. You may complete the course work at your own pace, and since you already have experience, you should be able to complete in less time than the prescribed 690 hours. If you graduate early, then the balance of your hours can be prorated and tuition refunded back to you, less any other incurred fees. If you have a current CompTIA A+ or Network+ certificate, present your verification number(s) to a counselor to request a waiver of the CompTIA certification fees.

Upon approaching graduation, your instructor and counselors will assist you in obtaining employment in the field of information technology. There are numerous positions available for entry-level IT technicians across the region.
