IT, or Information Technology, is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States. Many IT positions are in high-demand and as a result, IT professionals often enjoy above average earnings, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. Plus, IT is one industry for which demonstrable skills and knowledge are often more highly valued by employers than is a college degree. We help you obtain the professional certifications that demonstrate to employers that you have the skills they are looking for.
We offer career training programs for up to 14 in-demand certifications across five of the leading brands in IT, including Microsoft, Linux, Cisco, CompTIA, and even the Certified Ethical Hacker certification from EC-Council. This offers you experiential training and knowledge for a career in computer hardware, software, networking, and/or cybersecurity (through real-world simulations and labs). These are among the most marketable fields in IT. No programming knowledge is required to start your career!
- Information Technology Security & Administration (ITSA – No prerequisites)
- Cyber Security Specialist (CSS – Prerequisites)
- Cyber Security Engineer (CSE – Prerequisites)
- Associate of Applied Science in Network Administration and Cyber Security (Associate’s Program – Prerequisites)
Your resume must clearly and effectively show skills in such a way that hiring managers won’t have to second guess your qualifications. Our programs are designed with this in-mind. It’s important you satisfactorily complete a program in its entirety to build a solid foundation for your future career. Exceptions may be made for a student who has one or more current certifications. Please review our transfer credit policies in consultation with your Admissions Advisor.
Your out-of-pocket cost will vary depending on what financial aid programs are available to you. Your Admissions Advisor will work closely with our Financial Aid department to identify federal student aid for those who qualify and/or eligible tuition assistance programs such as grants, scholarships, educational loans, etc. If you qualify for a program, you could pay less. This is not a one-size-fits-all.

MyComputerCareer makes no promises or guarantees related to salary. Your education, prior work experience and your personal motivation are important factors that can affect your earnings. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), however, provides insight into the salaries available to certified industry professionals. For example, the median salary for a Network Administrator in 2021, nationally, was pegged at $83,600.
For perspective, the lowest 10 percent of those holding this title earned less than $49,560. For a Computer User Support Specialist (i.e. User Helpdesk Technician), where many of our graduates with no prior experience begin, the median income for 2021 was cited at $49,770 with the lowest 10 percent making less than $34,220. This information is updated annually. For more precise, up-to-date insight into computer industry jobs and salary potential, visit BLS.gov.
