This is all the information we have about this.
Are you curious about the hardware inside of your computer? Do you want
to sharpen your troubleshooting and computer maintenance skills? Perhaps
you would like to build a computer or home network of your own.
The Cisco academy for the vision impaired is accepting applicants for
classes in the second semester of 2010. We Will be offering IT
Essentials 1, Discovery 1 and Exploration 1 starting the last week of
ITE1 is an introduction to PC repair including: Hardware, installing and
maintaining an operating system, Troubleshooting, portable devices, and
Discovery 1 is focused on home and small business networking. It is the
first of four courses that prepare students to take
the CCNA certification.
Exploration is a more in depth look at networking, both theoretical and
practical for those students who wish to really get their hands into
building and designing networks.
Each class runs for a total of six months, with online lectures. The
classes are self-
paced so you can finish them in a month, or take the entire semester if
desired. The cost for each course is $500, however scholarships and
discounts are available to eligible students.
Students are required to have good internet access skills and
be familiar with their screen reader of choice, or be willing to teach
themselves the necessary skills
as we go along. Students should be familiar with reading Adobe PDF
documents, as they may be encountered while doing research projects. We
do not teach basic computer skills. Course content is online, so a
broadband internet connection is highly recommended. You will need an
internet plan with at least 1 Gigabyte of traffic per month for
completing course work, and downloading recorded lectures if desired.
Students should also have a
working headset/microphone and be willing to install skype and Ventrilo,
in order to attend lectures and communicate with instructors.
Applications will be accepted until 21 July 2010.
The Cisco Academy for the Vision impaired enables blind students to
enter the world of Information technology. We provide Diagram
descriptions, audio lab recordings, live online lectures by blind and
vision impaired instructors, and a community of students and instructors
to network with even after you have graduated our course.
