ATC Lab does more than help CIS students

Instructors: Do you have a project your students need to work on that we can help with? Is there a skill your students need to know to complete a project? Computers are a part of most every job, and most definitely part of a student’s educational program. Let’s work together to make our students successful!

We would like to work with you to help your students how to be successful! We will provide a hands-on demonstration and notes on how to do what your students need in order to complete your project and be successful!
