IT Fundamentals

Federal and state governments, and local communities, are in need of IT professionals, but have challenges finding professionals with the required training, certifications and clearances (when required) to fulfill positions.

This course will provide the core knowledge to securing IT positions and the preferred qualifying credential for technical support and IT operational roles. The course will cover much more than basic computer repair. Students will be prepared to troubleshoot, problem solve and understand a wide variety of issues ranging from networking and operating systems to mobile devices and security. IT Fundamentals will equip students with the knowledge and ability to connect users to the data they need to do their jobs regardless of the devices being used.
