This series is designed for computer users who have limited or no computer experience, and may be used to help prepare for the International Computer Driving Licence Examination, Syllabus Version 4.0. It provides an overview of computer hardware, storage, software, and security and copyright considerations. This series also provides introductory instruction on using a personal computer and managing files, and using various PC applications including word processing, spreadsheet, database, presentation, browser, and electronic mail applications. The International Computer Driving Licence (or ICDL) is the registered trade mark of The European Computer Driving Licence Foundation Limited in Ireland and other countries.


A+

The A+ qualification is the internationally recognised standard for any PC technician. The certification is an industry recognized credential that certifies the competency of PC Service Specialists. It is sponsored by the Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) and tests are administered by Sylvan Prometric. The program is backed by over 50 Major computer hardware and software manufacturers, vendors, distributors, resellers, and publications.This course provides a wealth of benefits to any person seeking a job in the computer industry! The test is open to anyone who wants to take the tests. No specific requirements are necessary except payment of the fee. Individuals may retake the test modules as often as they like, but the Core and the Specialty Exams must be passed within 90 calendar days of each other in order for an individual to become certified.


RHCE

RHCE is an acronym standing for Red Hat Certified Engineer. The RHCE acronym is a professional designation used to indicate the individual holds an industry recognized Linux certification. The RHCE is a mid to advanced-level certification that builds on topics covered in Red Hat's lower certification, the RHCT to include more advanced topics such as common enterprise networking (IP) services and security. Over 30,000 people have achieved the RHCE certification to date. To achieve the Red Hat Certified Engineer certification, the student must pass RH302, a 3.5 hour hands-on lab exam. This is the only exam required to achieve the certification. There is no prerequisite for the exam, but Red Hat recommends students have substantial real-world system administration experience before taking the exam. The exam consists of two sections. One section covers troubleshooting and system maintenance and lasts approximately two-and-a-half hours, while the other covers installation and configuration and lasts approximately three hours.


GIS

A GIS is a computer system capable of assembling, storing, manipulating, and displaying geographically referenced information. ArcInfo, our suggested GIS software, is able to link geographic information with descriptive information using geography as the connection between the many data sets. It is important to realize that GIS can do more than make maps, it allows you to calculate the relationships between map features and analyze the different attributes. A GIS can convert existing digital information, which may not yet be in map form, into forms it can recognize and use. For example, digital satellite images can be analyzed to produce a map layer of digital information about geology. And unlike a paper map, a GIS view consists of many data layers revealing an abundance of information.


Image Processing

Image processing methods to support computer vision in 2D and 3D; structural properties; Estimation of orientation; structural/model based methods for computer vision; models; recognition; Other image modalities; SAR, thermal images, range images, stereo vision, multi-sensor fusion; combining information; measurement extraction; applications and examples; inspection, navigation, pick-and-place, pose estimation. With the spread of affordable digital cameras there has never been a time that it is more important that the professional photographers' images should stand out from the crowd. Digital file handling will be looked at in detail with both Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.
