High school students receive certification in IT program
A new CompTIA A+ Certification & Computer Camp at Ramapo College offers high school students the opportunity to prepare for certification this summer. This international, vendor neutral certification is the first step in becoming an IT professional and may be achieved at the high school level. Students who are interested in learning how computers work but are not interested in pursuing certification are also welcome.
Information Sessions are scheduled on Wednesday, March 25, 7-8 p.m., Sunday, April 26, 1-2 p.m., and on Tuesday, June 9, 7-8 p.m. in the Anisfield School of Business, Room ASB-522 on the Ramapo College campus. Pre-registration is requested online at www.ramapo.edu/cipl/comptiacamp or call 201-684-7370. The program runs August 3-7, from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
During the program, high school students gain the skills and knowledge necessary to install, upgrade, repair, configure, optimize, troubleshoot and perform preventative maintenance on basic personal computer hardware and operating systems in a home or business setting. Networking and data security are also covered. Students are also prepared for two exams that make up the A+ certification: 220-801 and 220-802. Following program completion, students may opt to purchase exam vouchers online and take the exams at a local testing center.
Sign up for an Information Session at www. ramapo.edu/cipl/comptiacamp, or call the Ramapo College Center for Innovative and Professional Learning at 201-684-7370.
