This course will focus on the IC3 GS5 Exam, which focuses on today’s current technologies and the most prominent digital literacy requirements.
We begin by defining the operating system (OS) and what it does, as well as how applications and hardware work with an OS.
The next lesson will focus on computer and network terminology, by giving an in-depth overview of hardware and peripherals, storage, connectivity devices, and network components, such as switches, routers, and firewalls.
We will then discuss how to work with software and the OS by defining software and concepts, licensing, using software, and software tools such as databases, spreadsheets, file compression, disk management, and malware detection.
Lastly, we will go over troubleshooting, involving the use of software, removing malware, safe mode, knowledge base, and task and process management. Hardware, devices, and peripherals will also be covered, including discussions on firmware, cables, and connections. We will conclude by showing you how to backup and restore your computer.
Career Path: IC3 certification is an excellent way to tell teachers, potential and current employers, academic institutions, government agencies, and the whole world that you have the digital literacy skills to function successfully, effectively, and productively. IC3 certification is the one credential that applies to any education or career direction.
