Why must I take an evaluation?

Due to the intense technical nature of the CTI program, scholarship winners must display a moderate degree of pre-existing technical knowledge. The CTI Program is not an introduction to computers class. Rather it is an intense boot-camp style program to immerse tech savvy students in advanced computer topics that will prepare them for a job in the IT field related to computer technicians.
