IT Seminars and Events

It's an IT world. Succeed in IT.

Advances in IT continue to drive innovation and create change across all industries.

In addition, business will continue to seek out and invest in talented professionals who can integrate and apply various IT tools and  applications.

That means IT careers are expected to continue to grow, offering challenging work that allows for creativity, intellectual development and financial security.

CPCC's Computer Technology Institute offers free seminars on a regular basis to inform the community about IT trends and new technologies. Also, we are active members of many organizations that help to promote IT.
