The Practicum in Information Technology will operate very much like an independent study course, only in this case, the students' work will be directed toward passing an IT certification test. Selected certificates--ones that are in demand by companies and organizations--will be options presented to the students. Certification options may include, but are not limited to,: A+, CCNA, MCTS, etc.
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Integrate skills learned in the classroom and apply them to an IT certification experience.
- Share information about tasks assigned to them by mentors.
- Describe and relate the experience to their educational and career goals.
