Computer Information Systems (Certificate of Completion), Computer Support Specialist


School of Business & Information Technology (BIT)

This CIS Computer Support Specialist certificate is a subset of the core AAS degree technical courses. These core courses combine a variety of CIS courses offering the concepts and skills so that graduates may enter into IT support positions. It is designed to prepare students for work in the growing business market of microcomputer applications, Internet, security, programming, networking, and troubleshooting.

Since this CIS Computer Support Specialist certificate is a subset of the core AAS degree technical courses, it will enable CNM students who have completed the CIS AAS degree in a different concentration to complete the remaining technical courses in this area and earn this CIS certificate.  Additionally, this cert is ideal for students coming to CNM with AA/AAS/BS degrees who wish to do the core technical course work for this area.
