ITI Frequently Asked Questions
ITI computer classes are Open Admissions, Noncredit courses. There is no admission requirement for these courses, however some require prerequisite skills or training. No report cards are issued, but a Certificate of Completion will be issued to students who attend at least 80% of the course.

You are welcome to enroll in any class before it begins (if space is available) as long as you have the prerequisites (either by experience / previous training / classes, etc).
