Students and staff also have access to learning content to support their understanding of IT-related job roles. Successfully completed certifications allow students to show prospective employers not only a degree from an advanced technology college but industry-relevant certifications that validate that they have the skills and training to succeed in their jobs.

The CompTIA Academy Partner Program provides a pathway for students toward a rewarding, high-growth career in information technology.

So You Think That You Got a Great Deal...


The following article offers a caution when purchasing those inticement deals that appear too good to be true. Always check out who you are purchasing from prior to proceeding with the commit button. Unfortunately, discounted products may look genuine as fraudulent companies manufacture stolen ideas that are forgeries. Who suffers besides the consumer ordering? We all do as a Nation as our intellectual property is targeted by those adversaries, who feel no compunction in violating intellectual property rights. Remember, durable goods are not the only items targeted, ineffective medicines can be also marketed as the genuine articles.


Government Hackers Train for Attacks

So You Say that You Want to Get in the CyberFIGHT...

washington_post_logoEveryone needs a place to get good at what they do. How will CyberWarriors get realistic training situations for potential conflicts? The answer is Cyber Ranges. These virualized environments allow the simulation of millions of users, along with the Critical Infrastructure of a city or country. By gaining knowledge of defending against simulated attacks, we can better understand how our defenses will fare. On the other hand, where is the fun in just being a defender of a target? Cyber Warriors will be play a critical role in future warfare and will need to have the understanding of their potential targets, if a conflict escalates.

ET Students Tour WVLT


The Electronic Technology students took a field trip and toured the WVLT TV studios on November 14th. My class toured the electronics facilities, server room and even news room, and we got a glimpse of how technology has altered nearly every aspect of current television.

We all remember the fuss that was created when the government decided to make all television stations broadcast their content using digital communications. Before going digital, television stations broadcasted signals using AM and FM technologies: one signal to broadcast the picture (AM), the other to broadcast the sound (FM).
