Does computer technology interest you? Do your friends and family turn to you for help setting up their high-tech gadgets and devices? Maybe you just want to learn more about how to use all of your tech toys to their fullest potential and how to keep yourself safe in today’s digitally connected world? This 2-week crash-course will introduce you to the world of Information Technology. You’ll learn the basics of how to setup, configure and troubleshoot a wide range of devices and technology, including: PC Windows & Apple computers, mobile devices and apps, video screens and projectors, home and small business networks, printers, backup drives and other peripherals, cybersecurity, and cloud computing applications.

The Information Technology: Fundamentals (ITF) course is a prerequisite for students entering the MTECH Information Technology: Support Technician program. It will give students a broad overview of what it takes to be able to become an expert in supporting and maintaining the technology that drives today’s economy. You may choose to continue on with training to become an IT Support Tech. Or, perhaps you are simply looking for a short course to help improve your skills with the devices, apps and technology that drive our daily lives.

If you will be entering the IT Support Technician Program and feel that you already possess basic IT skills and knowledge, this ITF course can be challenged by taking the ITF Final Exam through the testing center. Please consult with an MTECH counselor for more information about the prerequisites and challenging the course.

For more information, contact the Program Coordinator.
