Delgado Community College is now offering a new suite of internet technology courses to provide New Orleans residents with the necessary skills to enter or advance their careers within the technology workforce. The IT Quartet Course Suite courses will validate the skills current working professionals need by earning their certifications in CompTia A+, Network+, Security +, and AWS Cloud Foundations while also providing individuals with no experience to launch a career in Information Technology.
IT Foundations, Computer Networking, Cybersecurity, and AWS Cloud Foundations are the four courses included in the suite.

At the end of training students will be prepared to sit for the CompTia Security+ exam.
