That is what i like about them (Career Services). They never stop sending you referrals. And it led me to my first IT job right after I graduated.

The Fremont Campus

At our Fremont campus, we provide unique hands-on training for our students. Each individual is supported according to their needs. Our instructors are also friendly and approachable. With a mix of classroom training and hands-on labs, our IT diploma program introduces and reinforces the common tools that you will need to support computer users in the modern age.

In previous years, our IT students completed a hands-on practical exam that involved dismantling and reassembling a computer. They began by unplugging all cords and removing the computer’s outer shell. Students were then required to remove all components, including the power supply, RAM, hard drive, and motherboard. By breaking a PC down into parts, students learned firsthand about the fragile connections required to maintain a functioning computer. This is just one example of our hands-on approach at Fremont.

Hands-On IT Lab

The well-furnished IT lab at our Fremont location greatly serves our students. We believe simulation training is vital for your success. In addition, most of our students have been thrilled with their experience. The skills they learn each day translate to a broader understanding of computer technology that has proven invaluable throughout their careers.

Student Support

Aside from our industry-leading IT training, students at our Fremont campus benefit immensely from the support they receive by our career services and financial aid teams. In particular, our career services team can help prepare you for an externship, providing you with critical feedback regarding your career and growth opportunities. Our team strives to help you find your first job, which may include job referrals and career counseling.

As challenging as the program was, the staff were always very supportive and kept us motivated.
