College launches exciting new technology courses

Feather River College is pleased to announce that the new Information Communications and Technologies program has been launched.

This program offers courses, degrees and certificates in some of the fastest growing technology fields, including web development, multimedia and office technology.

The program will provide real-world technology skills for Plumas County residents. The courses are designed to transfer to other community colleges or four-year colleges and universities.

This program is exciting for several reasons. First, Plumas County residents don’t have to leave the area to pick up much needed technical skills.

Second, because the program was built from the ground up, the courses have been designed to meet the needs of today’s market.

Thirdly, courses are being offered in both online and hybrid models, meaning those with busy work and home schedules can still take advantage of the offerings.

The program will provide opportunities for everyone interested in learning more about technology. It is visualized that graduates will be able to work for and support local businesses, work online anywhere in the world while residing in Plumas County, launch new online businesses, and/or pursue degrees and opportunities outside of the area.

This fall, the college will be offering the following courses: Web Design, Computer Proficiency, Introduction to Information Technology, Video Production andProgramming and Algorithms.

Next spring, Digital Imagery, Web Programming, Keyboarding, Computer Information Systems, Keyboarding, Audio Production and Programming and Algorithms II will be offered.
