The group was required to pass both the written and oral portions of the exam. Their credentials meet the standards in all 50 states.
The team had been preparing for this certification for more than a year, and we are proud to share their success.

Earlier this month, employees from the County’s Information and Technology Services Department participated in STEMfest 2016 (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) at Olympic High School – an event aimed at introducing K-8 students to the STEM program.
This was a great opportunity for the County to talk about different types technology and discuss all ways it affects our daily lives. The County’s exhibit table featured a Macintosh 512K working computer alongside a Surface Book – both displaying similar programs. It was a great way to demonstrate the evolution of technology.
On Dec. 21, ITS will represent the County at Olympic’s Career Speed Networking event and will discuss career opportunities in the field of information technology.
