Calhoun Community College announced Wednesday morning a new computer course will start on July 9th.

The school says the demand for qualified Computer Support Specialists in North Alabama continues to grow and they want to prepare people for the positions. 

Computer support specialists help give advice to people and organizations that use computer software and equipment. 

The course is short-term and will prepare students for the CompTIA A+ exam. Through the course, students will learn to install and update computer hardware and software along with finding the answers to common technical problems. 

The course will meet twice a week and will run through October. According to Calhoun, the course meets the criteria for high-wage, high-demand career training, it has been approved for WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act) funding. That means students who qualify can take the course at no cost.
