Computer Systems Technology (CTCSTC)

Certificate

Description

This program prepares students for employment as a microcomputer service technician. While preparing students to pass the Computer Technology Industry Association's (CompTIA) A+ Certification Examination, the program goes well beyond the requirements of the exam. The student will develop hands-on troubleshooting skills in solving hardware problems, working with operating systems, and relating to customers. This program also provides the foundation for Washtenaw Community College's two advanced certificates in computer networking.

What Students Say About Online Classes

“My teacher posted his lectures and activities on Blackboard weekly, so I was able to complete all required class work and tests at my own leisure. Most importantly, I learned a ton in the course, and my excellent instructor was available by email around the clock.”

—Wendy L., 48
