Extend your knowledge in Computer Servicing even further
This follows on from Computer Servicing II dealing further with more advanced computer repairs. It is the ideal course for people who are experienced in IT and are looking to improve on their knowledge.
What this Course Covers
There are 9 lessons in this course:
- Removable storage
- Audio systems
- Video systems
- Laptops and other portable devices
- Diagnosis and regular maintenance
- Networking: an introduction
- The Internet
- Compare alternative solutions to different types of faults determined in PC computer systems
- Repair hardware faults determined in PC computer systems

- Install hardware components in a computer
Self Assessment Tests are presented throughout the course. These are
essentially an automated quiz. When you undertake a "SAT" or "Self
Assessment Test", you will be able to see what you got correct, and what
was incorrect; and in that way, you can identify your weaknesses.
Assignments are given at the end of each lesson. You should complete
this assignment, paying careful attention to follow what is asked of
you. It can be just as important to learn to work to specification, as
it is to learn about the topic you are studying. Graduates who develop a
habit of working to specification in the field of human behaviour, will
impress employers, and will be more efficient when self employed.
A Final Exam is offered upon satisfactory completion of all assignments.
This is optional. If you choose to apply for and do this exam, you will
have the possibility of obtaining a "formal credit" or "Pass
Certification" for this course. A fee applies. The exam may be sat under
prearranged conditions anywhere in the world. This college will award
you a formal transcript, upon successful completion of the exam, as
proof of your results.

colleges from several countries, affiliated with each other through ACS
Distance Education.. Courses are developed with input from all of these
colleges, aspiring to reflect internationally accepted standards and
A strict "No Plagiarism" and "No fraud" policy exists. Assignments are
checked for plagiarism, and assignments will not be deemed to have been

have been copied from elsewhere. If the person doing the course is
discovered to be different to the name enrolled, the enrolment and any

WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT THIS INSTITUTION?
We believe that we have an ethical responsibility to make good use of
the fees you pay and the time you invest into an education through our
college. To this end, our first priority is always your learning. This
comes before issues such as formal accreditations, speculative marketing
and bureaucratic processes which all too often add considerable costs
to the running of colleges, and take resources away from the provision
of more valuable services to the student.
This college focuses on facilitating your learning and support to
optimise that learning. We recognise that learning is all about
improving knowledge and skills in your long term memory. While some
colleges may focus on getting you to pass exams, by committing knowledge
to short term memory; we understand that such an approach is not true
education, and does little to improve your long term career or business
