Requirements & who can attend
Since PC hardware training courses are usually meant to prepare students directly for careers as computer technicians, all of the skills they acquire in these courses can be directly applicable to their future careers.
Hardware-related challenges, troubleshooting and repair techniques are likely to be similar to the ones they’ll encounter on the job, if they choose to become technicians. However, these skills can also be useful in other careers, should students choose not to follow the technician route.
The intimate knowledge of PC hardware students should acquire in these courses is the same they would need to pursue careers as computer hardware engineers, the people who work to create and design that hardware in the first place. Knowledge of computer hardware is also extremely helpful for students who pursue careers as computer software technicians, network or systems administrators, or other IT support roles.
Learn by doing
The student will be able to:
- install, using good industry practices, any field replaceable unit such as RAM, drives, power supply, processor, etc;
