Programs here at North Arkansas College that offer training
Pearson VUE gives us the ability to offer Information Technology exams from top vendors like Cisco Systems, CompTIA, Adobe, Macromedia, and Microsoft. Although you test with Pearson VUE the certification is from the vendor. For example if you are taking a CompTIA A+ exam, your certification comes from CompTIA and not Pearson VUE.
Pearson VUE test centers and sponsors enjoy a real-time connection via the Internet to the VUE hub for all services, so data transfer is fast, reliable and secure.
Information Technology exams test specific knowledge in the computer field. The exam certifies you for a specific job, or in a specialty area. Each vendor offers a list of objectives that must be passed to certify.
Some certifications require you to pass more than one exam. For instance CompTIA's A+ certification is equivalent to six months on-the-job experience as a computer technician. It is necessary to pass two exams covering computer hardware and computer software.
North Arkansas College offers complete training for the A+ certification. Students who train for the A+ exam here at North Arkansas College before April 2005 gain a substantial discount on the A+ examination.
North Arkansas College offers a wide variety of Information Technology training. We have programs that prepare for specific certifications, and most of our programs will generally help you prepare for specialty certifications such as the MCSE, MCSA, Linux+, Net+, Security+, Macromedia Dreamweaver, Certified Internet Webmaster and many more.
Doing your own research before deciding on a certification can help you make the best choice about which certificate to pursue. For instance Certification Magazine offers free subscriptions.
North Arkansas College offers classes in the evening in A+ and CISCO most semesters for working adults who want to enhance or start a new career.
