Learn computer information systems (CIS) foundations and how these technologies are used and managed in a business environment.
This program is aimed at two audiences; individuals currently working in information systems with no formal credentials and those interested in a CIS foundation before moving on to higher education in computing.
This hands-on credential is the second step in laddering toward the Computer Systems Technology Diploma (CST/PTS).
If your end goal is the Diploma, then you should complete Applied Software Development (ASD) before starting this credential.
Start by learning to be an expert end-user of a personal computer, then become proficient in typical office applications, followed by an in-depth understanding of relational database design and data modeling.
A wide variety of electives are offered to suit individual interests including: accounting software, IT project management, object oriented programming and web development.
Students may also chose electives in expert level word processing, spreadsheets, business and technical communication, plus business intelligence for data mining.
Successful participants will have acquired a solid understanding of the technical foundations in business information systems.
ACIS graduates not moving on to the CST Diploma may choose to continue on to Applied Database Administration and Design.
