Genesee Community College Offers New Computer Repair Course

Officials at Batavia Career Technical Center and Genesee Community College are pleased to announce a new college credit computer repair course offered to high school students enrolled in the BOCES Electronics and Computer Technology program. This new course will allow students to gain extensive hands-on experience in repairing hardware and software related to personal computers and associated devices.

This program provides students with the opportunity to begin their college degree in this career field by earning four college credits at a significantly reduced tuition rate of $48 per credit.

“The opportunity to take a course for full college credit while still in high school is certainly an economic advantage for students and their families,” said Kathy Lopes, Associate Dean of ACE Programs at Genesee Community College. “And it gives students a chance to enter college with credits already earned.”

This course introduces the microcomputer and its operating system components. It includes hardware installation, repair, systematic troubleshooting, bus structures, operating system installation, and navigation tools.

“It is exciting to be offering this very technical course to students, which will allow them to begin their college careers,” said Jim Dziemian, Electronics and Computer Technology teacher at the Genesee Valley Board of Cooperative Educational Services.
