This post is a bit belated, but thank you to everyone who took the time to complete the ITonRamp survey. The responses were most helpful.
One thing we learned is that there is a great interest in an introductory course. After extensive searching for the right curriculum, we discovered something. Or, we discovered a lack of something. There are many entry-level computer books, but none that we found that covered what we felt was important. They were more geared to general computer usage instead of beginning IT. Thus, part of my prep work in bringing ITonRamp to you is writing the curriculum. That is now a work in progress.
Where do things stand now:
– Website is being written
– First round of logo drafts have arrived.
– Business plan is largely done
– A number of A+ books are under review
– Introductory track curriculum is in development.
Wow – nothing of this magnitude launches easily.
Shortly, we will unveil the ITonRamp website and blog. We want that to answer many of the questions we know are out there. As with the fitness challenges (which is ongoing btw at fitness.titus2.com) we don’t want to distract from the message of Titus2’s blog. The goal is to move ITonRamp communications to it and let thoseÂ interestedÂ follow that blog.
Our plans now are for the introductory course to be offered twice over the summer. Course length is looking to be 4-6 weeks. We may offer the more in depth course (A+, the IT technician training) as well over the summer, but for sure at the fall semester. This course will target a standard semester length of 16 weeks.
I would covet your prayers as I reduce my workload. Knowing which clients to keep and which I need to part ways with is hard. I would also appreciate prayer support in the writing and planning that is ongoing.
