New Horizons / IT Certification Courses
CHL and New Horizons Computer Learning Center have joined forces to provide a full range of technical computer IT courses at the Stennis Space Center. Many of these classes lead to IT certification. Classes are offered in the CHL Computer Lab in Bldg. 1103. Stennis Space Center employees receive a 25% discount on all New Horizons courses, with the exception the following: Citrix, VMware Intermediate level courses, Red Hat and ITIL Intermediate level courses; these courses only receive a 5% discount from the published list price.
Classes at Stennis are taught both in instructor-led courses and also in the "Online Live" format. "Online Live" classes are an integrated learning experience using the internet to provide live, interactive lessons between an instructor and students. Although separated by geography, instructors and students share active discussions, practice labs, simultaneous document viewing, and virtual rooms for breakout groups.
Online Live classes follow the same framework as our traditional instructor-led training. Using lecture, demos, and freehand diagramming, our certified trainers provide instruction through our collaborative eLearning platform. All students are issued low-noise headphones with microphones, and may freely participate in discussions with the instructor or with other students by voice or through text-chat. VoIP technology allows for clear, uninterrupted voice communication. Students apply what they learn in lecture by working on hands-on labs in a virtual environment. During their lab practice, the instructor can provide one-to-one mentoring, using remote sharing technology to view and manage the student's computer.
