Computer Maintenance and Networking

The Computer Maintenance/Networking (CMN) program prepares individuals for entering occupations in the Information Technology (IT) field that involve troubleshooting, repair, and maintenance of personal computers (PCs) and small business networks.  Skills are developed by hands-on practice in computer assembly, computer upgrades and configurations and computer networks.  Networking classes provide opportunities for students to design, build, and maintain computer networks.  Successful completion of the Cisco Networking Academy classes (CCENT I & CCENT II) will help prepare students to take the Cisco CCENT exam, which is the first step toward a Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification.  The CMN Program will also help prepare students for other industry standard certifications, such as CompTIA’s A+ and Security+ certifications.
