Build a Computer

Building your own computer to exactly match your budget and requirements can bring a lot of satisfaction.

In this course you will get guidance on component selection before purchasing the components and building the computer. Alternatively, if you just want to learn without purchasing a computer students can dismantle and assemble a pre-built computer.

This course is an ideal introduction for those looking to build their own computer or those looking at a career as a PC Technician.
