That is not what I am asking. I know the layout of the curriculum. I want feedback on what they offer from IT professionals on this site for someone that is new getting into the IT field.

You are going to pay FAR more money than you need to in order to get your classes/certifications.

Look at community college programs. I'll garuntee you, that you can get all those certs for a fraction of the price through a community college.

Busineeses don't care where you got your certs, or what school you attended, they care that you have them.

A REAL QUESTION YOU NEED TO ASK AS WELL:

WHAT SCHOOLS OUTSIDE OF THAT ONE, WILL ACCEPT THOSE COLLEGE CREDITS?

Majority of private schools, or certification money banks, DO NOT transfer anywhere else but that specific institution. i.e. those 49 credits may not be good anywhere at all. meaning only thing you'll get out of it will be thsoe specific certs.
I know that I am going to be paying alot more and I am aware that the credits are only transferable to ONE college.

Understood, do you have a link to the program?

Or can you copy and paste the curriculum?

Because for entry level certs, it's not worth the money for over charged classes. It's just not.

A+ with Network+, is dead entry level. For $60 through ETA-I, you can study through self-learning courses for both exams.

The A+ alone you're talking $240 just for the test. Network+ you're looking at $149 for the test. any college classes have no baring at all. They are just study classes for them. Keep that in mind.

And if the credits are only good for ONE college, a degree at said college may not be recognized by anyone at all. (meaning you can get a bachelors at said college, and as far as any employer is concerned, it's no different from a GED. Certs are always valid if they are from CompTIA, ETA-I, Cisco, Mircrosoft, etc. but the degree may not mean a single thing)

Reason I like this place. It is a close commute, can get student loans unlike other career training places. I initially don't have to take English 101 etc. Its strecthed out a little longer then other place. Some places cram all of this into like 3 months at the same price. Also, the hours for school are pretty good.

How much is the cost of this program?

That looks like basic core curriculum towards an Associate in Technical Arts Network Technician.

That's not even close to being worth $18,000.

If you're going for Network Administration, you're looking at being a Network Engineer (same thing, diff title). Of which, to get a job as one, you need a Bachelors of Science-Network Administration or Bachelors of Science-Network Engineer, etc. etc.

If those credits aren't transferable to a regular university or community college, you're wasting money.

The thing that scares me, is in no way is Network Security anypart of the above curriculum, which in itself is required even at the Technician level. Security+ is not covered in that curriculum. etc.

Those courses are far, beyond overpriced if you're paying $18,000 for 56 credits. Of which, aren't transferable anywhere but one (1) school?

I live in NYC. There are alot of IT jobs out here. I checked around with IT employment oppt and they would hire with those certs and not the bachelors. A lot of entry level jobs here, where I can gain the experience and move up the ladder.
