In response to increased industry demand for specialist skills Computer Power has introduced six new streams to its Power IT program.
The program aims to give IT graduates advanced, industry recognized and up-to-date skills along with industry certifications from vendors such as Microsoft, Red Hat and CompTIA. Each course includes job placement assistance.
While the training vendor's previous program enabled students to study Power Programming, where they learnt structured and object-oriented programming concepts before specializing in either C or Java programming, it is now one of seven streams available under the Power logo. Others include Web development, desktop support, CCNA, Red Hat, MCSA, or MCP.
In addition to these streams, the program includes common core subjects around helpdesk problem-solving techniques, professional development, customer service skills and employment preparation.
The courses run weekly at each of the company's institutes. They can be started any time during the year and studied on a full-time or part-time basis. They range from two to five months in duration if studied full time.
