Information Technology is the study or use of systems (especially computers and telecommunications) for storing, retrieving, and sending information.
Digital Information Technology, and Technical Support Services
These courses are designed to provide an introduction to information technology concepts and careers as well as the impact information technology has on the world, people, and industry and basic web design concepts. The content includes information technology career research; operating systems and software applications; electronic communications including e-mail and Internet services; basic HTML web commands and design; and emerging technologies and web page design along with learning how to touch type and learn the different business document formats. The students will learn the fundamentals of supporting and troubleshooting computer hardware and software. The topics covered are the basic skills required of any IT professional today and the foundation for the other courses in the IT Academy. Students will be encouraged to study and prepare for Microsoft Office, MTA Windows Fundamentals, Comptia A +, Comptia Network + and Comptia Security + exams upon completion of this course.
