Information Systems

As an Information Systems technician, your job is to keep a business's or organization's IT running smoothly and securely. You'll be the one who ensures all computers, servers, and other devices are networked effectively and efficiently.  Here at ATC, our Information Systems program combines theory with hands-on projects and was developed based on needs identified by our industry advisory committee. We utilize the Cisco Networking Academy curriculum to prepare students for exciting careers in Information Technology which provides students with access to expert, educational IT content and to a rich learning experience through online media. Engaging activities include animated simulations, videos, and interactive quizzes, along with valuable hands-on lab exercises for real world experience. We've gone even further by partnering with CompTIA and Microsoft's Academic Alliance to ensure that our students are kept up to date with the latest in technology.  Our students also take part in the International CyberPatriot games and the Canadian Cyber Defence Challenge. Companies in every industry need to have computer technology implemented and maintained, keeping these workers in constant demand. Our program can lead to diverse roles in computer installation, maintenance and repair, or can prepare students to continue learning in other related programs.
