Local College of the Redwoods students can earn a certificate of recognition as a network technician without traveling to Eureka.

A new telepresence lab at CR’s Del Norte campus will offer interactive, two-way streaming audio and video instruction with the main campus in Eureka, according to a college news release. This new lab will allow one instructor to teach students at both locations together, according to the release.

The certificate of recognition in Cisco Networking and Microsoft Server Administration is a 12-credit certificate that includes the recommended preparation class Computer Repair and Maintenance, offered at the Del Norte campus, according to the news release. The certificate also includes the two telepresence classes, Computer Network Fundamentals and System and Network Administration.

Students who complete this certificate will be prepared for the Cisco Certified Network Associate and Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate exams, according to the news release.
