CIS Core Skills Certificate of Recognition

A one to two quarter certificate gives students core IT skills complementing employable skills in computer help desks and other entry-level positions. This certificate will also serve as the fundamental core for our 1 year Certificate program which is the basis of all other CIS programs at OC.

Moreover, the CIS Core Skills certificate will give students who may currently work in industry or have only an industry certification (such as an MSCE or Cisco certification) a broader IT knowledge base and will enhance their skills.
