When you enroll at Career Quest Learning Centers, you’re taking the first step to a long and successful career. We’ve spent the past 25 years helping students jump-start their career at our campuses. Now, students in Ohio can reap the benefits of our quarter-century of experience and enroll in one of our two online IT programs.

Don’t think it can get any better? You can earn your certificate or degree in as little as 8 to 15 months!

Online IT Degree: Learning on Your Terms

Online courses are a popular choice for those continuing their education as adults. They provide the necessary flexibility to complete your coursework at the time that will best help you adhere to your coursework deadlines. You also have the choice between attending live lectures or viewing pre-recorded lectures.

Whether you’re working full-time and studying early in the morning, late at night, on the weekends, or whenever you can sneak in a few hours throughout the day while your kids are napping, online career training allows you the ability to study at a time that’s best for you.

Earning your IT certificate or degree online also gives you the freedom to learn from the comfort and safety of your own home.

Our Online IT Programs

No two students share the exact same career goals. That’s why we offer two different online IT programs:

1. Network Administration Certificate Program

If you’re looking for a quick turnaround from being a student to a trained employee, our network administration certificate program in Ohio is for you. This 8-month program is perfect for those looking to land an IT role to support Small Office and Home Office (SOHO) networks.

One reason why this certificate program can likely be completed in less than one year is because no general education classes are required. That means you won’t take any math, history, or English classes. Instead, you’ll focus all your energy on your IT classes, such as:

Even if you have only the barest foundation of computer skills to start, our certificate program can work for you.

2. Network Administration (AAS) Degree

Our network administration (AAS) degree program takes a little longer to complete, but at the end, you’ll have an applied associate’s degree. This program is the perfect way to take the information taught in our certificate program and expand it even further.

Students are welcome to complete our certificate and degree programs back-to-back, which only adds an extra 7 months onto your career training.

The additional classes you’ll take in the network administration (AAS) degree program include:

  • Supporting Linux
  • Virtualization
  • Cloud support
  • Cisco-certified network associate

For those currently enrolled in our certificate program who are interested in furthering their education with the AAS program, you may be eligible for a tuition discount. Talk with one of our financial advisors to learn more.

Regardless of which program you choose, you’ll gain the knowledge needed for long-term career success. That’s because each program provides the skills needed to design, maintain, deploy, and secure Windows and Linux-based networks.

Both programs set students up for a stable and more prosperous professional future. Let’s see how these two programs allow for personalized learning!

Long-Term Career Success in Information Technology

Technology plays a vital role in our daily lives. It connects family members and old friends. It also helps keep businesses of all sizes online. With technology playing such a vital role in everyday life, it’s no surprise that information technology is a fast-growing occupation.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates an 11% projected growth in the information technology field through 2029.1

Whether you earn your certificate or degree, you’ll be on the path to success. Some of the jobs in information technology our graduates have pursued include:
