Students learn basic hardware and software concepts used for computer
maintenance and repair as well as suggested best practices in maintenance
and safety issues. The students, through hands on activities and labs, will
learn to assemble and configure a computer, install operating systems and
software, and troubleshoot hardware and software problems. This course helps
students prepare for Cisco’s A+ certification. The organization and
delivery of instruction in this course will adhere to the model as developed
by the Business and Information Technology Education (BITE) division of the
Oklahoma Department of Career and Technology Education. Further, use of the
21st Century Classroom Learning Laboratories will ensure active teaching and
Juniors and Seniors may apply for four (4) hours of college credit from
Oklahoma City Community College.
Successful completion of this course will allow students to enroll in IT
Essentials II at Francis Tuttle Technology Center. At the completion of the
second course, students may chose between one of two pathways: Network
