The Networking Technology and Computer Information Technology programs offer a wide range of instruction in administration of network devices (such as switches, WAPs, and routers) and networked operating systems (Windows and Linux). This includes server and workstation configuration and management as well. Courses are offered that map to specific vendor certifications, including CompTIA A+, Network+, Security+, and Linux+; Microsoft MCSA; Cisco CCENT, CCNA, and CCNA Security, and Linux LPI with Novell CLP.

Classroom training includes lecture, discussion, and an abundance of hands-on experience. Students learn to configure, install, and troubleshoot a network from the server/desktop to the switch, to the router, and to the Internet. Students also configure, install, secure, and manage Network Operating Systems such as Windows 8 and 2012R2) and Linux (SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 11).
