WCC Student Qualifies for National IT Championship
WCC computer security student Jesse Reets is one of three finalists in Michigan to advance to the national finals in the Cisco Networking Academy NetRiders Competitions.
Competitors faced two rounds of proctored tests, which included both concepts and hands-on skills, to qualify for the final contest. Twenty-two students from various Michigan community colleges and universities made it to the last round of state competition.
Cisco Networking Academy NetRiders Competitions utilize Cisco’s technologies to create an interactive networking skills contest that enhances classroom learning, unites students from across the world, and promotes further technology education and training.
Reets will compete against students from all 50 states and Canada in the final round. The top U.S. and Canadian finishers win a study trip to Cisco headquarters in San Jose, Calif.
