I called other schools looking for A+ Certification. Some schools offer the program for anywhere from 40 to 200 hrs. CLC has programs for 40 hrs & 72 hours.  What's the difference?

The 40 hour program is designed as a  total immersion learning experience and is perfect for individuals that are already in the industry or, are good computer users. The total immersion experience provides the student with the information that is necessary to pass the exam. The student will actually take several practice exams during the week and then the finals at the end of each section. 

For the 72 hr program the student will be coming to class only 12 hours a week, which allows the student to keep their current job. It also allows more time for the student to study while completing the program. and allows for more review time. This program is ideal for those individuals that have limited knowledge of computers.

Why do I need Network+ Certification before MCSE?

When a student embarks on the MCSE training program, Microsoft has designed the various modules with the assumption that the student already has basic networking knowledge and skills.  Network+ is an excellent prerequisite to MCSE because it gives the student basic networking knowledge, allows hands-on network setup and introduces the student to several different types of networks.

I am not good at Math, is that a problem?

Basic Math skills are required for a successful completion of the MCSE program.  However, anyone that has successfully completed basic Math courses in high school should have no problem.

When do I take the exams?

Unlike other schools, CLC strongly recommends that students take their examinations immediately following completion of each module.  The information is fresh and top of mind and students experience much higher passing ratios if the examination is taken immediately following completion of any given module.

Am I too old for this?

The Information Technology industry has very little age or sex discrimination.  The certifications you hold are the determining factor as to whether or not employers will consider you for positions.

What's the guarantee that I will get a job after I earn my certifications?

It is against the law for any school to guarantee job placement as an enticement to take a course.  The Information Technology Association of America (ITAA) estimates that companies in this country will need roughly 1.6 million IT workers this year.  With demand for appropriately skilled people far exceeding supply, half of these positions (843,328) will likely go unfilled, according to the ITAA, which estimates the total US. IT workforce at 10 million.  That means one job in every dozen will be vacant. 

In the final analysis, your employment success will depend on you.  We can train you, assist you with résumé preparation and job search.  The jobs are out there, securing a position is ultimately your responsibility.
