Computer Technician Training (aka Network and Technical Support Training/NTST) prepares you for a career as a computer support specialist and other entry-level employment. According to the Department of Labor, employment opportunities as a Computer Support Specialist (SOC 15-1151.00 | DOT 032.262-010) are “expected to grow 18 percent from 2010 to 2020” and for Network or System Administrators (SOC 15-1142.00), “expected to grow 28 percent from 2010 to 2020, faster than the average for all occupations.”
CTT graduates are suited to a wide variety of entry-level jobs such as technical support specialist, customer service representatives, desktop/deskside support both on and off-site, technical and retail sales positions.
