Computer Systems Technology (CTCSTC)



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

“I was very reluctant to take online classes, but because of my various roles as a wife, mother, full-time employee, and student my time was limited…. Online classes have helped with managing my time in these various roles, and have been a true blessing to both my family and my learning experience at WCC.”

—F. Robertson
