Program Overview

The Computer Support Technician certificate program combines online learning with hands-on experience in computer hardware, application support, operating systems, and networks. Students will learn how to install, configure, and troubleshoot hardware and PC software applications in both stand-alone and network environments. They will be introduced to operating systems, Microsoft software products, web development, markup languages, and script languages. Students can also develop workplace skills in effective communication and customer support.

This 30-credit program is delivered over two 15-week semesters. Students complete seven core courses and three electives, enabling a degree of specialization within the program. All courses are delivered online, with hands-on practice which can be completed in the student’s home. No regular campus attendance is required except for the supervision of exams, when specified.

Workplaces of all kinds depend on computer systems for everything, from their web presence to their record-keeping systems to their email and office applications. The Computer Support Technician program helps prepare graduates for entry level positions such as hardware technicians, network technicians, or junior web developers in business, government, industry, and other organizations. The program also helps prepare students for a variety of industry certifications, although completing these certifications is not a program requirement.
