Charlotte, N.C. - Computer service technicians are in great demand in today's economy, and there are real possibilities for career growth, good wages and benefits. That's why the Mecklenburg County Women's Commission, in partnership with Johnson C. Smith University's Technology Enhancement Academy, will provide preparation and training for A+ Certification in computer repair.
A+ Certification ensures that entry-level computer service technicians are qualified to service hardware and software in computers.
Applicants must qualify as displaced homemakers - men or women who find they lack adequate job skills after a divorce or other circumstances.
The training begins with an orientation session on Thursday, August 26, from 10 - 11:30 a.m. at the Mecklenburg County Women's Commission, Hal Marshall County Services Center, 700 North Tryon Street.

The training will last four to five weeks. Applicants who pass the pre-test will be eligible for the training immediately. Others must complete a 12-hour Introduction to Computers and Networking class and then enter the A+ Certification training. Qualified tutors will also assist with study and test taking skills for both the preparation course and the A+ Certification training courses.
