IC3 students mark success at recognition

MERIDIAN — Special to The Star

    Six Meridian Community College internet and computing core certification (IC3) students were honored during a recognition and celebration ceremony. The students recently completed the 120-hour course offered through MCC’s Workforce Development Program.

    In the class, students learn skills of how to work in an Internet or networked environment, an understanding of computing and popular word processing, spreadsheet and presentation applications. Upon successful completion of this program students seeking IC? certification are required to pass all three IC3 exams: Computing Fundamentals, Key Applications, and Living Online.

    “This is a great credential to have. It shows potential employers that these individuals have the basic computer skills to be able to work in various office and clinical settings,” Workforce Project Manager Lucy Morgan said. “The IC3 credential is the first step to improving their employability in today’s growing IT field.  

    “Regardless of your career or education goals, computers and technology will most likely play an important role in the future. The best way to stand out from the crowd is to have the IC3 credential on your resume. IC3 certification provides students with a globally recognized and highly valuable credential to use in their professional pursuits,” Morgan said.

    “We are extremely happy for each individual. It took a lot of dedication and hard work to achieve the IC3 credential. Several of the students have been out of the classroom setting for many years while others were dually working on their GED high school equivalency exam and/or working in local industry,” said Margarette Cole, IC3 Instructor.

    The Internet and Computing Core Certification (IC3) provides job seekers with the foundation of knowledge needed to succeed in environments that require the use of computers and the Internet. IC3 certification validates skills using the latest computer and internet technology to achieve business objectives, expand productivity, improve profitability, and provide a competitive edge.
