The class, which students can take for credit or as part of training for their new IT job, teaches core skills in the area of Information Technology. Students learn about IT topics such as computer troubleshooting, computer hardware, operating systems and networking. The class features lectures, group troubleshooting and hands-on labs.

Virginia Drake and Ben Arnold of the ITS Help Desk are the course instructors.

The class is coming off a very successful session that included more than 20 students and the placement of students in various tech support jobs throughout campus, including the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the College of Pharmacy, Public Health and the ITS Help Desk.

If you will need student IT workers over the summer or for the start of the fall semester, or if you’ve just hired new student employees close to the start of the May session, contact Virginia or Ben to inquire about class seat availability or hiring graduates of the class.
