* EDT 559 is designed to be the last course in this certificate program. Depending on need and interest, it will be offered every spring or every other year.
** EDT 529 is Advanced Networking and Troubleshooting. Because this certificate is designed with somewhat experienced people in mind, we figured they would go directly into EDT 529. However, if they have no experience in any type of networking or troubleshooting, they will be advised to take EDT 527 which is offered each spring.
