New IT Programs Offer Fast Tracks to Certification

NHTI's Information Technology (IT) department has added another six new certificate programs starting in Spring 2016.  These new programs are all designed to accelerate training or preparation for industry recognized certifications and/or to qualify students for entry level to mid-range jobs in the IT field. 

Each certificate consists of four courses (12 credits) which can be taken day or evening.  Fifty to 80% of the content of each certificate will be delivered using an online format.  Hybrid courses are likely. Many of the certificates are stackable; that is, they build naturally upon one another leading to higher levels of certification and better job opportunities.

  • Entry Level Software Development Certificate and Advanced Software Development Certificate.  Provide students with programming and systems design skills used in business and industry.  Students will use different programming languages while designing databases and creating business front ends.  
  • Microsoft Servers Certificate.  An introduction to Microsoft Server operating systems.  Graduates are eligible to test for the Microsoft Certified Professional Certificate.
  • IT Virtualization Certificate.  Focuses on VMWare and Hyper-V virtual servers, in addition to Cisco servers.  Graduates are eligible to test for Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) certification.
  • IT Security Certificate.  Graduates may earn their CompTIA Security+, Cisco CCNA Security and Microsoft MCSA Server 2012 certifications.  
  • Linux Certificate.  Graduates may earn their CompTIA Linux+, Linux Professional Institute LPIC-1 Linux Server Professional and the SUSE Certified Linux Administrator certifications.

Building Inspector / Plans Examiner Certificate Program Info Night

Building IinspectorsMonday December 7
6:00 pm
Farnum 107

This fall, NHTI launched a new 3-semester program leading to a Building Inspector and Plans Examiner Certificate.  This 18-credit-hour program prepares Building Inspectors and Plans Examiners to critically examine permit applications and plans for residential, commercial, and other building types, and to subsequently ensure that the construction of buildings with permits is conducted in accordance and within the provisions of relevant building codes.  The program can help experienced construction workers transition into a new career, or provide the foundation of a new career for those with no prior experience.

This is an evening program.  Financial aid approval is pending.  Students may sign up for individual courses, as well as for the certificate.

NHTI will hold an Information Session for those interested in learning more about this program on Monday December 7 at 6:00 pm.  Please RSVP to (603) 230-4022 or
