Your start to a re­ward­ing IT ca­reer

Central Leader - - News -

In­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy is one of the world’s fastest grow­ing in­dus­tries, and qual­i­fied tech­ni­cians will al­ways be as­sured of well paid, re­ward­ing ca­reers.

The ideal first step on the path to be­com­ing an IT pro­fes­sional is en­rolling in the Avon­more cour­ses of­fered at New Zealand In­sti­tute of Ed­u­ca­tion’s Taka­puna cam­pus.

Avon­more pro­vides both the Diploma in Com­puter Net­work En­gi­neer­ing (Level 5) and the Diploma in Com­puter Net­work Sys­tems En­gi­neer­ing (level 6).

Stu­dents sit the Com­pTIA A+, Net­work+ and Microsoft Cer­ti­fied Part­ner qual­i­fi­ca­tions as part of their course – th­ese are in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised and open the door to op­por­tu­ni­ties any­where in the world.

Ca­reers which can be at­tained in­clude com­puter tech­ni­cian, user sup­port, sales, net­work in­stal­la­tion, net­work de­sign, net­work ad­min­is­tra­tion, IT man­age­ment and more.

The cour­ses are full time for 37 weeks for each level, and the Level 5 course can be done as two mod­ules, each cer­tifi­cated. Class sizes av­er­age from 15 to 20 stu­dents and lab ses­sions have a max­i­mum of six stu­dents at any one time, which means there is plenty of op­por­tu­nity for one-on-one tu­ition.

Course tu­tor Ray­mond Mok is an IT pro­fes­sional with 12 years ex­pe­ri­ence. He is avail­able for af­ter-class tu­to­ri­als if stu­dents need ex­tra as­sis­tance.

In th­ese cour­ses you will ex­pe­ri­ence sit­u­a­tions very sim­i­lar to those you will find in the work­place, aided by prac­ti­cal, hands-on learn­ing and as­sess­ments.

Avon­more has been es­tab­lished since 1988 and is NZQA ac­cred­ited and reg­is­tered. Its head of­fice is in Christchurch and it has been es­tab­lished on the North Shore for the past eight years.

NZIE’s new premises at 62 An­zac St, Taka­puna fea­ture top qual­ity com­puter equip­ment and stu­dent ameni­ties. Stu­dent loans and al­lowances are avail­able.

The next in­take for the Level 5 course is on March 30. For en­rol­ment in­for­ma­tion and fur­ther de­tails of the cour­ses, phone Avon­more on 0800-248-666 or visit www,
