The advanced certificate in cyber security provides training in the configuration of network security hardware, network services such as email and web serves and network operating systems such as Windows.
“With the high demand and usage of computers today, we’re seeing an increased vulnerability among these systems,” said James Thomas, associate dean for business and information technology. “This new advanced certificate will equip existing information technology professionals with the skills to help mitigate these risks.”
The personal trainer certificate provides students an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of exercise science, human anatomy, clinical nutrition and physiology.
York Tech’s new certificate programs in allied health services, dental office and nursing care also meet the admission requirements for the college’s degree programs in dental hygiene, nursing and radiologic technology, according to the school. Students that complete the certifications can continue their degree or enter the workforce.
With the digital arts program, students learn skills required for jobs as designers, artists and advertising programs.
Those that complete the paralegal program can work with attorneys and others in a legal profession.
