The Computer Support Specialist program is a hybrid registered apprenticeship that includes two semesters of related technical instruction (RTI) and 2,000 hours of on-the-job learning. The program provides participants with the knowledge and technical skills required for a successful career as an IT generalist.
Students are prepared to complete a CompTIA A+ Computer Technician Certification and earn a nationally recognized journeyperson credential after completing the RTI and on-the-job requirements. Tuition for State of Delaware Registered Apprentices is covered by a grant through the State of Delaware, less a $50 registration fee.
To be eligible to participate in the Computer Support Specialist apprenticeship program, participants must either: A. be currently employed in the IT field, B. provide documentation of a minimum of 12 months of previous experience in an IT related position, or C. successfully complete the Information Technology Fundamentals pre-apprenticeship program.
