What is EdCert, and where can I find more information about EdCert classes?EdCert, or Education Certification, is a UITS initiative aimed at elevating the level of expertise in departmental computing support and building a solid technical infrastructure at Indiana University. The EdCert Program offers advanced technical training to local support providers (LSPs), those staff members who provide IT support in departments, schools, and administrative units on all IU campuses. Topics include Microsoft Windows, Unix system administration, and Windows and Unix Security, among others.
Microsoft and CompTIA EdCert classes are designed for computing support providers registered with UITS as LSPs. The Windows classes use Microsoft Official Curriculum (MOC) and are taught by Microsoft Certified Trainers (MCTs). CompTIA classes are taught using CompTIA Approved Courseware by CompTIA Certified Trainers.
Most EdCert classes require a prerequisite course or fundamental knowledge of core basic computing skills. EdCert classes have different fees depending on course length; most EdCert courses are five days long.
