Microcomputer and Networking Systems

Program Overview

Microcomputer and Networking Systems Technology (LEA.3V) Training in Montreal

Available in English only.

Individuals trained in microcomputer and networking systems provide problem solving services to network users.  They are typically responsible for maintaining, troubleshooting and administering the use of local area networks (LANs), wide area networks (WANs) mainframe networks, computer workstations, and connections to the internet.  It was only a few years ago that the terms Internet, intranet and extranet were used only in very specialized environments.  Now they are part of the everyday vocabulary.  The widespread use of the Internet has led to the use of routers, proxies, firewalls, VPN (Virtual Private Networks) and now cloud computing and virtualization.  The new technologies that have evolved in the last few years have also led to such internet-business terms as B2B, B2C and M2M. Our program is in constant evolution from year to year as the ever-increasing changes in industry dictate changes to course content.

This program provides instruction and training on how to install, configure and maintain microcomputers, operating systems as well as cloud technology. Areas of study include technical support, Linux operating systems, network operating systems, managing an enterprise network, Microsoft based systems, and cloud environments.

We prepare students for jobs that demand proficiency with Microsoft products and technologies. In addition, Herzing College is a member of the Computer Technology Industry Association (CompTia). We also prepare students for proficiency in microcomputer hardware and operating systems. Because certifications are a reality in the computer industry, the Microcomputers and Networking Systems program contains course material for Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA), Cisco CCENT, CompTia A+ and Network+, CompTia Cloud Essentials and CompTia Linux+ certifications.
