Are you ready for a new and exciting career as an IT professional? Enroll at PCAGE and become an IT professional in under 12 months. Federal Financial Aid is available to those who qualify. No prior computer experience necessary to enroll.

 

Career Center
Once you are ready to graduate from PC AGE, the career center is ready to place you in the job of your dreams. The skills in order to obtain this job that are offered are resume writing, job search strategies for success, and professional imaging tips. The school also stresses the career preparation in each class offered. Each class has a companion course that seeks to:

 

- To ready students for a technical interview by asking and explaining possible questions that will additionally prepare the soon to be graduates for related and upcoming Microsoft, CompTIA, and Cisco certification exams.
- To ensure that PC AGE students are prepared to do the job successfully by working on real world projects and exploring all possible job scenarios and situations.

 

The school offers a career-training workshop, where students will learn to move from the classroom to the workplace. This workshop will cover resume and cover letter writing, job searching for success, and interview skills.

 

Admissions Process and Financial Aid
The school has an interactive contact form for prospective students. Once a student completes the application form, a school representative will contact the student. An interview, campus tour, and question session will be scheduled. The school believes that certifications are more valuable than degrees in IT, so these goals will be considered for the student’s personal needs. Once the student moves ahead with admission, he or she can meet with a financial aid officer to determine the possible aid needs.


The school accepts most federal aid, such as the Pell Grant. It also accepts the Training Grants for Unemployed Works assistance. This is money for laid off workers given by the Workplace Investment Act and the New Jersey Workforce Development Partnership. You must meet with a counselor to see if you meet the program criteria.


Lastly, PC AGE is a Department of Veterans Affairs approved institution. The site has linked the GI Bill Comparison tool, so that those who meet the military criteria for assistance can determine their Post-9/11 Bill benefits.

 

CompTIA A+, Security+ & Linux+ Program


The CompTIA A+ certification indicates that a PC AGE student has the latest skills needed and desired by computer support professionals. It is a nationally and internationally recognized certification honored by the most prestigious hardware and software vendors, distributors, and resellers. A+ certification shows a technician’s ability to successfully complete jobs such as an installation, configuration, diagnosing, preventive maintenance, and basic networking. Security, safety and environmental issues, and communication and professionalism are also intensively covered in the PC AGE program, as well as in the examination.

This program offers other certification opportunities such as:

 

CompTIA Security+Certification-CompTIA Security+ Certification reflects the student's knowledge and application of the security field knowledge through two years on-the-job and in-the-field networking security experience. The program includes relevant and timely industry-wide topics that may include such fields as communication security, infrastructure security, cryptography, access control, authentication, external attack, and operational and organizational security. Security+ is considered an elective or prerequisite to the advanced security certifications.

 

CompTIA Linux+Certification-CompTIA’s Linux+ is a certification curriculum that gives to the students what PC Age calls a 3-in-1 path: the student will be Linux+ certified, the technician will also receive the LPI (Linux Professional Institute) Level 1 (LPIC-1), and the Novell SUSE Desktop Support Technician designations.

Ricoh, CompuCom, Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard, Cisco, and Novell desire these different certifications from their employees.
