Thanks to the ever evolving role technology has on the business world, employees must ensure their skills evolve at a similar pace. Continuing education courses in Information Technology offer the opportunity to explore prep classes which focus on a host of vital IT skills needed for the workplace.
Through a trio of IT programs, students have the opportunity to explore courses that focus on Cloud Computing and Security+ Prep, Networking+ and A+ Prep.
Cloud Computing and Security+ Prep
The Cloud Computing and Security+ Prep classes focus on elements that make up network security and a comprehensive overview of cloud computing principles. This includes highlighting topics in network security planning, cryptology, security audits and preparation for the CompTIA Security+ SY0-401 certification exam. Additional focus is placed on working with cloud-based vendors along with the software, infrastructure and platforms in cloud-based systems.
Students taking the Networking+ Prep Courses work through classes that focus on routing and switching, Windows network operating, wireless networks and WANs, Network Design and working with UNIX and LINUX. The Routing and Switching in the Network Environment class provides a key foundation of classwork experience, introducing the protocols and techniques utilized in the field.
Through the Networking with the Windows Network Operating class, students are prepared to configure and monitor Windows-based server and troubleshoot the unique challenges that arise while maintaining them. Additionally, the Wireless Networks and WANs course provides insight into the design, installation and maintenance of wireless networks.
The Networking with the UNIX/LINUX Networking Operating System course focuses on administering a Linux-networked environment which includes adding and configuring directories and users- commands, and monitoring -network security. All of the courses tied into the Network Design and Implementation class, which rounds out the program by giving students the common techniques and practices used in the field with regard to establishing and monitoring computer networks. This also prepares students to take the CompTIA Network+ N10-006 certification exam.
Students work through three classes in the A+ Prep program, learning Business Information Systems Principles which introduces how IT functions within the business realm. The class covers various business applications, systems development and IT ethics. The Hardware and Networking Fundamentals class is another foundational course for people seeking to enter the IT field. The class covers personal computers, desktop operating systems, mobile devices and network connectivity.
Lastly, students close the program with the Software and Operating Systems class which introduces network technology such as devices, topology, protocols, connectivity and more. This includes operating systems elements and it prepares students for the two-part CompTIA A+ 220-901 and 220-902 certification exams.
