The Information Technology Software Development Certificate Program consists of eight courses which provide students with programming and systems design skills used in business and industry. Students will use five different programming languages while designing databases and creating business front ends. Extensive hands-on training is provided in our computer labs with extensive instruction.
This program is recommended for persons who have achieved a level of expertise in their field or who have completed a college degree in a specialty area and need computer applications and programming courses to be more effective in using computer productivity tools for managerial decisions. This program is available days and evenings. This program is financial aid eligible.
NHTI has developed excellent practicum opportunities for our students to foster hands-on learning while simultaneously receiving credit. Nonetheless, the college’s first priority must be to ensure that patients/clients/children/families are not placed in jeopardy by students during learning experiences. Therefore, students in internship, externship, practicum, service learning, and clinical experiences must demonstrate sufficient emotional stability to withstand the stresses, uncertainties and changing circumstances that characterize patient/client/child/family responsibilities. Furthermore, the student is expected to have the emotional stability required to exercise sound judgment, accept direction and guidance from a supervisor or faculty member, and establish rapport and maintain sensitive interpersonal relationships and confidentiality with employees, customers, and/or patients/clients/children and their families.
