  • Why should I begin a career in IT?

    IT, or Information Technology, is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States. Many of the careers are in high-demand, making the salaries, even for entry-level positions, higher than the national average. Plus, it’s one of the industries in which skills and knowledge mean more than a traditional four-year degree. We help you obtain the professional certifications that prove to employers that you have the skills you need for the job they’re looking to fill.

  • What certifications do you offer?

    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 provides you hands-on training and knowledge for a career in computer hardware, software, networking and/or cyber security. These are among the most marketable fields in IT. No programming knowledge is required to start your career!

  • What kind of programs do you offer?

    We have four programs:

    • 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)

    With the exception of an Associate’s Degree, each of our programs can be completed in from six to ten months, but you’ll begin receiving certifications in as little as a couple of months and you can start your career before you graduate from your program.

  • Do I have to enroll in a program or can I pick and choose certain courses/certifications?

    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.

  • How much does MyComputerCareer cost?

    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.

  • How much will I make in an Information Technology career?

    MyComputerCareer makes no promises or guarantees related to salary but the US Department of Labor Statistics provides insight into the salaries available to certified industry professionals. For example, the median salary for a Network Administrator is $83,000. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $52,370, the highest 10 percent earned more than $132,520. For a Computer Support Specialist, the median is around $50,000 with the lowest 10 percent making less than $38,990, and the highest 10 percent earning over $106,420.
