Networking – in business and in computer terms – will ensure you get a great career. Computer networks are critical to almost every organization. Understand them, and you’ll be in demand anywhere you go.

Technical College of the Lowcountry’s Network Administrator Certificate program teaches you to install, maintain, and repair local area networks (LAN) in residential, business, government, and industrial environments.

TCL’s 29-credit-hour program can be completed in as little as two full-time semesters. Courses include AC/DC circuits; digital circuits; microprocessors; technical troubleshooting; workstation and server networking and configuration; implementing and administering Windows infrastructure and directing services; and designing network security.

The S.C. annual mean wage is $54,530 for computer network support specialists and $75,630 for administrators, according to 2017 reports from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
