Computer and Information Systems: Computer Maintenance Certificate

The Computer Maintenance Certificate Program provides the exposure and training necessary to maintain and troubleshoot common PC computer systems. This program provides hands-on training in basic electronics, Operating System installation and maintenance, PC repair and computer management and prepares students for entry level jobs and is a pathway to the Information Technology Core Concepts Certificate and the Associate Degree Program in Information Systems - Systems Management, which has two areas of emphasis including Microsoft Server and CISCO Networking.

This is a locally approved certificate. Upon satisfactory completion of the listed requirements and application for completion of the certificate to Admissions and Records, the student will receive a certificate of completion.
