The internship program mostly is geared toward students who are currently participating in IT programs at local colleges and computer trade schools that want to gain hands-on computer and phone repair tech experience. We are finding that most of the modern day IT programs only offer theory training. This makes it difficult for a new IT technician to enter the field. Our program gives them real-world experience that serves as the foundation of their careers as computer repair technicians. We train our interns on motherboard, hard drive, and screen replacement repair. Virus Clean ups, Data Backup, and retrieval just to name a few. Over the span of a year which is the average length of our internship the techs, we train exit with the skills and troubleshooting mindsets of a great tech.
