Benefits of Online IT Training
At MyComputerCareer, we understand how challenging a change of career can be. Time is an important commodity, and there is never enough! That’s why …
We are introducing Interactive Distance Learning for the Austin, Texas, area.
If you can’t manage a traditional class schedule, now you can take advantage of the hands-on learning that distinguishes MyComputerCareer. And you can do it from the comfort of your own home. But make no mistake, just because it’s online and at home, doesn’t mean it isn’t rigorous training. You’ll be held to the same high standard of accredited education you’d receive on one of our campuses. And when you’re through, you’ll be fully prepared to transition into the IT industry or advance your current IT career within a matter of months—or even weeks.
Key Factors Set MyComputerCareer Apart …
MyComputerCareer is nationally accredited by ACCET, the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training. This body is accountable directly to the U.S. Department of Education. In order to maintain accreditation, a private school like ours must maintain a 67% graduation rate and about a 70% job placement rate. That means 70% of our grads MUST be working in IT jobs within a few months of completing their training.
But that is not all…
Most schools have a single client: the student. At MyComputerCareer, we have two.
- YOU, The Student
- Companies That Hire Our Students
A traditional college or university needs only to send you to class and help you graduate. So even if you spend four years plus tens of thousands of dollars on your education, and still end up working in a drive-thru—the university has done its job.
Our model requires that you must gain work in an IT position related to your training in order for us to count you as a successful graduate. And for us to maintain those positive relationships with employers that hire our students and graduates, you have to be able to perform effectively on the job. The key to that outcome is certification. And it isn’t enough just to get certified. You must earn your certifications by mastering the skills companies need.
Here’s what we expect from you, our potential student…
We want students who want to become skilled, knowledgeable, and certified IT professionals. This means you must be willing to perform at a high level in the right educational program. You are as much a factor in your own success as our programs and instructors.
Our goal is to have 70% of our students employed in an IT career prior to their graduation.
Here’s How the Program Works
The vast majority of our students work full-time. Requiring that you come to a class four or five nights per week would essentially burden you with a second full-time job—then there are your personal responsibilities. That is why you can complete all your certifications online and in the comfort of your home! Here’s where the independence of your distance learning comes into play:
- Flexible Schedules. Your instruction is comprised of a combination of live, instructor-led “virtual” classroom sessions, and a library of online video presentations and lab simulations online that you’ll watch, study from, and review at your own pace. You may choose day or evening classes for your in-class training (typically 2-times a week) and work on your out of class assignments anytime you want.
- You get to earn all of the same certifications as our traditional students.
- You have access to unlimited mentoring, including group and 1-on-1 sessions to help ensure you understand and can apply the material successfully.
Here’s What the Program’s Tuition Includes
EVERYTHING. Absolutely everything you’ll need to earn your IT certification is included in the program cost, so there are no hidden fees or materials costs. But what exactly does “everything” mean?
- A New Laptop
- Interactive Videos
- Reference material
- Practice exams
- Test-pass Assistance
- Career Advancement Training
- Lifetime Career Services (Placement)
Note: Practice exams can be taken as many times as you need in order to gain the confidence you’ll want on the day you walk in for the actual certification exam. Most of our student pass on their first try.
Also Note: Job placement services begin after your first two certifications.
What This All Means for You
When you become a student of MyComputerCareer, you’re entering a comprehensive IT career development program that will empower you to earn the certifications and skills you need for a long and rewarding career in Information Technology. This includes top certifications from Microsoft, CompTIA, and CISCO, as well as the coveted Certified Ethical Hacker certification from EC-Council.
