IT professionals are in high demand. With an increasing number of computers being used at home and at business, there is a substantial and ever-increasing demand for workers to install, maintain, and repair both hardware and software. While many computer courses teach programming, shockingly few prepare students to be knowledgeable and successful computer technicians.
This course introduces students to computer servicing. It gives a suitable starting point for anyone interested in a career in computer servicing by developing a comprehensive and basic grasp of repair and maintenance processes that may be applied at work or at home.
