Advance your Career with Computer Classes
Computer training is the fastest way to advance your career. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, computer support specialist jobs will grow up to 11% by the year 2026. Computers are an integral part of every industry, so finding a good computer support job is easier than you think.
At Career Technical Institute (CTI), students learn skills in software applications, hardware troubleshooting and local network support. However, our Help Desk Professional Training Program provides more than just technical knowledge in networking, operating systems, computer repair and hard disk management. We teach and train our students how to manage customer expectations, so they are able to offer guidance and practical advice with professionalism and poise.
In today’s technology-driven work environment, help desk professionals often face the challenge of interacting with distressed, confused, frustrated and often irritated individuals who need assistance. Plus, those who seek expert help by phone, chat or email are often in a hurry to solve their problem. Being a help desk professional can be a challenge without proper training.
