    Career Spotlight: Computer Network Technician

    Last updated 3 years ago

    We live in a globalized world where almost everything we do is made possible through information technology.  One of the fastest growing fields within information technology is computer network technicians.  Check out this career spotlight to learn more about this exciting career:

    Job Overview
    A computer network technician is responsible for installing and troubleshooting local and wide area networks.  A network includes systems such as computers, printers, Internet modems, and email.  A computer network technician should have a good working knowledge of fiber optics, cables, and wireless tools used to link different systems.  Other technician job descriptions include:

    • Determining company and user needs.
    • Recommending hardware/software systems.
    • Analyzing network efficiency and compatibility.
    • Evaluating system performance.

    Important Characteristics
    The ideal computer network technician is technically competent and has a passion for information technology.  Since a computer network technician is the means through which an entire office utilizes its technological equipment, it’s important that the technician is comfortable and interested in technical equipment.  Communication skills are also a must, as you’ll need to evaluate day-to-day IT network needs, and discuss network efficiency and improvements with the users.

    Job Benefits
    One of the greatest advantages as a computer network technician is job security.  As technology becomes progressively sophisticated and the number of network users increases, employment will continue to rise.  Most entry-level salaries for network technicians start about $30,000 annually.  After a few years of employment, you can earn a median of $50,000.  A non-monetary benefit that many computer network technicians enjoy is the variety of activities and interesting people they come into contact with on a regular basis.

    Florida Career College offers a 15-month Computer Network Technician Diploma Program with a comprehensive curriculum to help you succeed as a future technician.  Get in touch with an admissions representative for more information about IT training, network administrative training, and a variety of other programs.  Call (888) 848-2717 or visit the FCC website to discuss your opportunities.

    After researching other colleges in West Palm Beach, Rachael Huffman decided to enroll in Florida Career College because she wanted to better herself, get into the medical field and besides, FCC was the most affordable with the shortest program in Medical Billing and Coding.

    Rachel say’s, “Thanks to all the teachers for encouraging and motivating me to do well.   I LOVE FAWZIA in Career Services because without her support, I would have given up on my job search.  Due to my background record and other issues, I felt that I couldn’t make it, but Fawzia continued to give me the confidence I needed; she never gave up on me and scheduled me for interviews.  Now, I have 2 jobs. 

    I truly love Fawzia for her support.  She went above and beyond in her job to get me employed and I am very happy to be working in the medical field, my dream career. 

    Thank you, Florida Career College!”
