Mitch Evans , the Director of Infrastructure Services in the VGCC Information Technology department, will serve as the instructor for the course. He said that included among the topics covered during the course would be networking, printer sharing, file sharing and installing add-on hardware and software. Evans will include tips on scanning and removing virus information, spyware and ad-ware. Students will also completely build and assemble a PC during this class. “This class will be hands-on, and will provide you with a lot of great tricks for downloading free software and utilities to help keep your PC safe and running smoothly,” Evans said.
