PC maintenance and IT Support
Computers are full of technology – understanding and being able to repair that technology is a valuable skill. Every office using more than a couple of computers has a need for an in-house PC technician who’ll be able to help install new PCs, fix problems, troubleshoot networking and printing problems and manage different software applications.

SoftwarePaths’ PC Troubleshooting and Repair course training path and the Network+ and A+ training certification paths help prepare you for a career working with PCs. Learning about the hardware and its configuration is a natural pre-cursor to systems administration courses which help configure and maintain larger networks of Computers
