In our Technology Helpdesk class, students act as interns while they work with our staff to become Apple Certified Macintosh Technicians (ACMT). The students work with our own ACMT certified staff to learn the necessary skills to obtain the certification themselves. Throughout the year, they assist with repairs on faculty and student computers, while working through their modules in Atlas, Apples online certification curriculum. At the end of the school year students obtain their certification and some are given the opportunity to work a paid internship over the summer.
