With this course, students get certification and skills on the latest Microsoft technologies, including Server 2012 and Windows 8. CMIT has also added a Windows 7 course, allowing students to easily see the changes between the two platforms and excel on both Operating Systems.

Keeping one’s knowledge base at the cutting edge of technology has never been more important.
