Certificate in Network Systems Maintenance

Networking Architecture forms the basis of the telecommunication industry with more companies developing their own in-house systems and serves to maintain everything from employee records to databases of cash flow and inventory. Thus with the growing local and international network systems industry which partially competes ,with the newer more expensive and externally controlled cloud industry, a labor force that can handle the nuances (comparing and contrasting the advantages and disadvantages ) is necessary.

This certificate has no pre-requisites and covers a broad spectrum of topics from fundamentals of computer networks and network administration, network architectures, use of WAN, network operations/Services and Standards (local and international), network server and workstations, network operating systems (legacy and newer versions) and disaster planning.

A.S.T.I has been a distinguished trainer in the telecommunication industry with graduates performing in both the local and international industry striving to develop the skillset of the local population and simultaneously outfitting the industry with the most technologically competent labor force.
