New Program Spotlight: Certificate in IT Support

At Peirce College, we know that the credential you earn needs to work for you. Whether it’s a new job, your first job, or a promotion, your hard work needs to help you get the future you want.

As we develop new programs, we always align our coursework with the needs of the labor market so our graduates are ready to take the next step after graduation. 

Our new undergraduate certificate program in IT Support is a perfect example. Peirce College’s stackable Certificate of Proficiency in IT Support prepares students, including those with no prior IT experience, to enter the IT field as a Computer Support Specialist. Students can also embed key IT certifications, including CompTIA ITF+ and A+, into the program. 

According to the PA Department of Labor and Industry High-Priority Occupation list, the need for Computer User Support Specialists in Philadelphia is expected to grow by 9% through 2030, and the average salary is more than $64,000. And the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the need for Computer User Support Specialists nationally is also expected to grow by 9% through 2030, with a median salary of $55,000.

IT Support positions enable many career changers with little or no IT experience gain the expertise they need to grow their technology career in fields such as network administration, cloud computing and cybersecurity.

And with the possibility of embedding an industry recognized credential into your coursework, you’ll have even more to add to your resume. 

Peirce’s certificate program is offered entirely online and is completely stackable with our associate degree in Information Technology and the Bachelor of Science in Information Technology. It can also be applied to many of our other programs as an added credential. The program is 16 credits long; can be completed in 6-9 months; and accepts up to nine transfer credits.
