VCTC’s Computer Technology courses will prepare you for an exciting career in computers and networking. We offer two one-year programs, and each will give you the opportunity to earn industry-wide certifications: CompTIA A+ certification and CompTIA Network+ certification.  In both courses,students will work daily on computer and network related competencies which will extend their abilities and skills in the areas of technical knowledge, troubleshooting and customer service.

    In A+ Certification you will be studying computer hardware, system configurations, various operating systems, troubleshooting basics, and the world of networking. Students will have comprehensive hands-on laboratory exercises while using various Internet reference materials to supplement the classroom instruction. All CompTIA A+ Certification exam objectives will be covered.

    The A+ and Network+ certifications are internationally recognized standards for entry-level computer technicians.  Many colleges – including Blue Ridge Community College- grant course credit for incoming students who have earned either or both of these certifications. VCTC students wishing to become A+ and/or Network+ certified will have the opportunity to take the exams at a significantly reduced rate. While you do not have to earn either certification to pass the courses, it is strongly recommended you do so.

    If you are interested in the exciting and growing field of Computer Technology, these classes are the best way to start your career!
