Computer Service Technology

Welcome Letter
Instructor Mr. Meck
Welcome to the Lycoming Career and Technology Center, Computer Service Technology program. We
will be spending time this year learning about all aspects of computer hardware components, from
safety issues to how the components work together. We will learn to become skilled technicians by
developing and strengthening our problem solving skills, logical thinking processes, and research
techniques. Written and verbal communication skills, as well as problem solving techniques, are
developed to provide students with the necessary background to provide technical support services.
My responsibility, as your teacher, is to present the material in an organized manner, help you on an
individual basis when needed, and guide you to a thorough understanding of the computer and
networking technology. My goal is for each of you to be successful!
Your responsibility, as a student, is to come to class prepared, complete projects and assignments in a
timely manner, and respect everyone in this class.
Course Texts:
CompTIA A+ Guide to Hardware
Network+ Guide to Networks
