According to research conducted by the Pew Research Center, 91% of Americans believe they’ve lost control over how their personal information is collected and used by companies, and 64% believe the government needs to do more to regulate the way advertisers use our personal information.

What makes Centura College’s Computer Network Degree Program Different?

Computer Network Management Degree Program

Centura College – Computer Network Management Degree Program

At Centura College, our Computer Network Management Degree Program courses have been updated to meet CompTIA’s new exam requirements that began in August of 2013.  By changing our course curriculum to the new TestOut Software’s PC Pro Course, our students will not only be prepared to take the new CompTIA A+ exams, but they will also get a chance to take the certification exam from TestOut, that is completely performance based and better prepares our students for the CompTIA A+ Certification Exam.  So, at the end of the first academic year in our Computer Network Management Degree Program, our students will already have taken their TestOut certification exam and will then be eligible to take the two CompTIA A+ exams as part of our Degree Program.  That’s right, our program tuition includes all testing and certification fees for both the TestOut and CompTIA A+ Certification exams.  Further to that, those students at our Chesapeake, Virginia Campus can take both exams on site at our campus! …Read More Here
