8 June – Trades Academy Computer Technician

Steve took the same class as last week as they found the computers were a real mess with some of them with missing parts or wiring put back in incorrectly.  It became a lesson in what not to do with the insides of a computer.

The other half of the class had assignments to complete on the workings of the computer and things like:

  • operating systems
  • application software
  • system configurations
  • specifications and what they mean
  • HUI
  • hardware and software types
  • CPU components and their uses
  • Fetch cycle
  • Processing cycle

Lots of work but in the end, having a chance to get your own computer made it worth while
