Allentown Computer Networking School teaches PC Componentry
At our Allentown campus, computer network support students begin with developing a solid foundation in the principles of networking, and the design of a computer. This includes both hardware and software components.
As the training progresses, systematically building knowledge of the hardware and software systems of a laptop or desktop system is crucial as this knowledge allows students to understand how they will interact when connected to a network. For any person who enters the computer networking support field, there is great satisfaction in seeing a system that they either built or fixed operate correctly on a network.
The real science behind supporting a sophisticated network is to understand how each device and program interact with each other; knowing the capabilities and limitations (compatibility) of each device or application is important. When these pieces are fully understood, a computer network support technician can tune the system to run at optimal capacity. Efficiency is both cost-effective and provides the best user-experience. This is especially important when connected to the web.
The learning doesn’t stop there since staying current on the latest technologies will be a career-long goal. Updates to anti-virus and firewall applications alone is a daunting task, and is crucial to data security and privacy. The old adage that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” definitely applies to this field.
