Three Distinguished Features of PC AGE Career Institute
1. Intense Curriculum that includes basic to advanced skills for a high paying IT career. Courses are taught by highly qualified and certified instructors.
2. PC AGE students can transfer credits to our partner Thomas Edison State University (TESU.)
3. For over 25 years, PC AGE has credibility among local employers for training and placing qualified students for computer networking jobs.
A tough or intense curriculum designed around IT industry certifications and taught by certified instructors will not only prepare you for entry level positions but also help you move to the higher level jobs in a relatively short time. Check if the IT school is only preparing you for entry level positions or includes courses for higher level IT jobs. For example, many schools prepare you for Network Technician or Technical Support Specialist jobs and teach you skills covered in CompTIA A+, Network+ and Microsoft Desktop and Server (MCP) certifications. A tough curriculum may also include high level skills covered in more advanced certifications such as Security+, Linux+, and Cisco CCNA. A real intense curriculum may go further and include Cybersecurity courses. An intense curriculum is specifically important for career changers because their primary purpose for going to an IT school is to receive the education for a high level job. Therefore, the curriculum or courses play an integral role in preparing you not only for the job market but for the high level job market.
Transferability of Credits for a Degree
By creating an articulation agreement with Thomas Edison State University (TESU), PC AGE offers a career-focused, hands-on oriented and regionally accredited college degree to its students through TESU. Credits earned at PC AGE can be transferred towards Associate’s/Bachelor’s degree from TESU. As TESU is a regionally accredited University, once you transfer credits to TESU, you may transfer them to thousands of other colleges and universities.
