LMHS WCCC Satellite Students Earn CompTIA Certifications
Warren County Career Center satellite students at Little Miami High School in Information Technology recently earned professional distinction from CompTIA (Computer Technology Industry Association) for passing IT certification exams. Their instructor is Diana Conner-Marks.
Seniors Konnor Klercke and Brandon Nguyen passed the second examination of a two-test requirement for CompTIA A+. This certification is the preferred qualifying credential for technical support and other IT operational roles. A+ is the industry standard for establishing a career in IT. Skills mastered include: hardware, networking, mobile, operating systems, security, operational procedures, and hardware and software troubleshooting.
Juniors Nate Crowder and Matt Lockman, and senior Tommy McReynolds passed part one for CompTIA A+. These students will continue their studies to complete the certification requirements.
The students took their certification exams at WCCC’s Authorized Regional Testing Center and also had a Cybersecurity overview using the
Raspberry Pi single board computers, from Adult IT Coordinator Don Corbet. WCCC is a CompTIA Outstanding Leader for 2018 in recognition of the number of students certified at the facility.
The Computing Technology Industry Association is a non-profit trade association, issuing professional certifications for the information technology industry. It is considered one of the IT industry's top trade associations. These professional examinations are not often passed by high school students as they are created for adult distinction in the workforce.
