”It’s mine, all mine!” That’s what you’ll be saying after taking this class. Learn to build a personal computer from scratch. You can do it! This class is for the diehard computer buff. Not only will you install and configure different operating systems, but you will also learn to configure them  to work in a network environment. And that’s not all! As a special bonus, this course helps prepare you for A+ Certification, one of the most respected IT certifications. (Having an A+ Certification proves that you have a broad base of knowledge and competency in core hardware and operating system technologies including installation, configuration, diagnosing, preventive maintenance and basic networking.) Best of all, at the end of the course, you get to take home your very own Personal Computer that you built with your own two hands. Wow your friends as you surf, game and do school work on a machine that you know thoroughly from the inside out!
