Information Technology Systems Program Features
Information Technology Systems and IT Essentials prepares students to enter the rapidly advancing field of advanced computing technologies. The coursework provides the foundational knowledge and skills necessary to complete CompTIA (Computing Technology Industry Association) Certifications in Computer Technology A+, Networking Technology N+ and Information Technology Security S+.
The CompTIA A+ certification is the starting point for a career in IT.
