This program is currently suspended.
The NST program helps students prepare for numerous computer industry certifications, such as:
- CompTIA Security+,
- Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA),
- Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS)
- Server 2008,

These MCTS certifications also provide many of the required components of a Microsoft Certified Information Technology Professional (MCITP) designation. Students also receive training in advanced web programming, Mac OS X, computer virtualization, and written communications.
Students can achieve a certificate recognizing the completion of the program, or an Administrative Studies diploma in Network Support which recognizes the completion of the Computer and Web Specialist program and the Network Support Technician program.
