Our instructional design team has pulled together Optional Pre-Work for learners in IT Support or Equivalent courses to ensure learners are prepared with the skills, abilities, and opportunities for success in courses that do not require existing knowledge. This is not required for enrollment with Per Scholas but is highly recommended due to the fast-paced, rigorous nature of our bootcamp-style training.
