VGCC offers advanced course on building, repairing computers

Vance-Granville Community College is currently registering students for “Advanced PC Maintenance & Repair.” The course is scheduled to be held on Monday evenings from 5:30 until 9:30 p.m., Jan. 6 through June 30, 2014, in room 7107 on the college’s Main Campus in Vance County.


Mitch Evans, the Director of Information Technology for VGCC, is the instructor, and has taught introductory “PC Maintenance & Repair” classes in the past. According to Evans, this class is geared towards providing more advanced computer maintenance, troubleshooting, networking techniques, hands-on experience, and real-world and production techniques for repairing computers.


“My students from previous classes have been able to save themselves and their family members a great deal of money because they were able to clean and remove virus and spyware information from their computers,” Evans said. “Several students were given estimates of $150 to $250 to repair their computer, but they were able to repair and clean it themselves. In addition, some students have used the knowledge and hands-on experience they gained from this class to obtain jobs and make themselves more marketable as employees.”


The cost of the course is $187.


The deadline to register for this class is Jan. 2, 2014. Prospective students can now register and pay for this and other Occupational Extension courses online ( www.vgcc.edu/oex ).   Individuals also have the option to register and pay for classes at Main Campus, Building 7, Room 7120, Tuesday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., but all college campuses will be closed from Dec. 20, 2013 through Jan. 1, 2014.
