ASUMH Students Achieve Industry Certification

The Computer Information Systems department at Arkansas State University Mountain Home prepares students for good jobs, advanced college degrees, and the 21st century.

ASU-Mountain Home offers the A+ certification program that is an international, vendor-neutral, entry-level certification recognized by major hardware and software vendors, distributors, and resellers.  The A+ certification confirms a technician's ability to perform computer tasks such as installation, configuration, diagnosing, preventive maintenance, and security. 

ASU-Mountain Home also offers the Cisco Networking Academy as a stand-alone program for individuals interested in learning networking skills and preparing for the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification exam.  The Cisco Networking Academy curriculum covers a broad range of topics, from basic networking skills such as pulling cable to more complex concepts such as applying advanced troubleshooting tools, while working with Cisco's state-of-the-art networking equipment.  The program can also serve as the cornerstone of a two-year degree in networking.

The demand for skilled network and computer support professionals continues to grow.  Obtaining an industry certification is a valuable credential to help start or enhance a career in the IT field. By incorporating a Computer Information Systems degree along with an industry certification, students can increase their employment potential. 

For more information on ASU-Mountain Home's Computer Information Systems degrees and courses, call (870) 508-6100.  Students interested in enrolling this fall should contact the university as soon as possible to begin the admission process.
