IT Network Support

Students who complete the IT Network Support track earn 16 stackable credits, including an undergraduate certificate in IT Support, which applies directly to undergraduate degree programs at Peirce College.

Graduates of this track will be prepared for the CompTIA Internet Fundamentals (ITF+) exam, and the CompTIA Network+ exam.

  • ITF+ certification helps students and career changers determine if they have a competency for an IT career, and is ideal for non-technical professionals.
  • Network+ certification is widely recognized by employers to validate skills in IT infrastructure covering troubleshooting, configuring, and managing networks. It is an ideal certification for those in entry-level IT positions interested in moving to networking in the IT field. 

Peirce counselors will connect graduates with employment opportunities in the region and help them apply for jobs, prepare for interviews and leverage the College’s alumni network.
