Information Technology Courses

My experience at VAS has been very worthwhile. Taking both A+ and S+ classes has substantially increased my level of understanding of newer concepts and reinforced many previously encountered topics and procedures. Instructor Jeff Ripa brings a level of direct knowledge and experience that he uses to highlight the relevance of each topic and concept in a very open and relatable fashion. The curriculum is very well organized and presented in an interesting and engaging way. My goal of refreshing and expanding my current level of proficiencies is well underway, and I anticipate the successful certification process in the very near future.
