For the second year in a row, Crafton Hills College (CHC) Cisco Academy students worked as volunteer workers at the national Tech Ed Conference held in the Ontario Convention Center.

The purpose of the annual Tech ED Conference was to provide technical training and technology workshops for high school, community college, and four-year college instructors, administrators and related support staff nationally.

“It was fun,” said CHC Student Christine Yu. “There were tons of people there from all over the nation, and some from other countries. Once everything was set up, we were on call to help with hardware, software, and audiovisual equipment.”

CHC Cisco Academy students helped set up networks and cabling, and they provided ongoing technical support. CHC’s eight-semester Cisco program teaches both beginning and advanced networking technology skills as well as information technology fundamentals.
