How This Course Works
Each module begins with an interactive introductory presentation that introduces key concepts based on specific learning objectives, incorporates knowledge checks to ensure understanding and provides access to additional resources with examples to further explore the topics covered in the module. Throughout the course you will be engaged in an immersive experience that offers you the opportunity to assume the role of an IT consultant hired by a fictitious startup company. You have been hired to help them plan their IT infrastructure where you will be asked to make decisions as it relates to the learning objectives in the course.
Finally, at the end of the 4th module you will be asked to take a final assessment. Please note that you must score 70% or higher on the final assessment prior to receiving a certificate of completion and earning 4.0 continuing professional education (CPE) credits.
