Student Certifications

A+ Certification: Computer Repair students have the opportunity to earn the A+ Certification within one year. The A+ Certification is the foundation of computer and technology training. Created by Comp TIA and administered nationwide by Sylvan, it is the most popular entry-level certification. A+ is needed to acquire a job in the computer repair industry, showing that the holder has substantial knowledge about hardware systems, consisting of configuring, upgrading, troubleshooting, and repairing desktop systems.

CCENT Certification: The CCENT certification validates the skills required for entry-level network support positions, the starting point for many successful careers in networking. CCENT certified professionals have the knowledge and skill to install, operate, and troubleshoot a small enterprise branch network, including basic network security. It opens doors to a career in networking. Having the CCENT means the student has what it takes to manage a small, enterprise branch network. A CCENT is the first step toward CCNA certification and will help students stand out from the crowd in entry-level positions.

Culinary Arts and Commercial Baking & Pastry Arts: The EVIT Culinary Arts and Baking & Pastry Arts programs are accredited by the Accrediting Commission of the American Culinary Federation Education Foundation.

National Automotive Technician Educational Foundation: EVIT is the only NATEF certified high school in the East Valley. The Automotive Technology and Collision Repair programs adhere to the national standards outlined by the National Institute of Automotive Service Excellence. This is vital in finding a job outside of high school.
