Digital Information Technology
Digital Information Technology is geared towards familiarizing and certifying students with the most widely used software of Microsoft Office. This is accomplished through the use of the online simulator GMetrix.

GMetrix was founded in 2006 by a management team with over 30 years of experience in the computer and IT training industries. This program that allows students to practice taking Microsoft Office Specialist certification exams. GMetrix works with partners throughout Europe, the Middle East, Asia and North and South America to provide educational tools designed to prepare individuals for the effective use of technology in the business environment. Certiport administers the Industry Certifications and believes that GMetrix practice tests instill confidence and are an essential component in preparing candidates for certification. Using Gmetrix, and fulfilling the requirements regarding Gmetrix, is the greatest predictor of success on the actual exam.
