Students enter the world of computer networking and learn to troubleshoot networks and networking devices, using system tools and diagnostic software. They develop skills in computer networking, resource sharing, and associated security risks. In addition, students explore the relationships between internal and external computer components. Contextual instruction and student participation in co-curricular career and technical student organization (CTSO) activities will develop leadership, interpersonal, and career skills. High-quality work-based learning (HQWBL) will provide experiential learning opportunities related to students' career goals and/or interests, integrated with instruction, and performed in partnership with local businesses and organizations.
