- Computer Hardware Applications
- Computer Software Applications
Courses are geared towards self-paced learning that will give students "maximum exposure" in maintaining smart home devices and applications; as well as establishing a Home Theater System. When computed, the course lessons consists of 200 hours of specialized technical training: 110 hours of online training, followed by 40 hours of in-field training with an instructor, followed by another 50 hours of OJT (On-the-Job Training) through an employer.
