  2. Hello,
    What is the fee?how long does the program take?

    • Hello Reza,

      All our programs are free.

      You can take a course as an independent study which means that you come in at your own schedule. If you do this, it will depend on how much time you devote to your studies.

      If you enroll in a teacher led class, then you must attend the class on the designated dates and times. To view a current schedule of our Fall 2014 offerings:

      1. Go to our web site: https://ceclab.wordpress.com.
      2. Point at the green tab titled ‘Classes’ located at the top of the page.
      3. Click “Centennial Education Center Schedule” to view the Fall schedule of classes.

      This schedule shows the complete listing of our course offerings, and the times and dates these courses are offered.

      Barbara Barone, Instructor

  3. Do I need to be registered at Santa Ana College to attend these classes?

    • Dear Jose,

      No, you do not need to be registered at Santa Ana College to attend these classes. Instead, you register for these classes in person with the instructor.


  4. Can I take, VBUS 450, 574, 576 at the same time.

    • Dear William,

      Thank you for your interest in the Computer Maintenance and Repair State Certificate. The Instructor will need to approve your request to take VBUS 450, 574 and 576 at the same time. It may be possible so I encourage you to come in and speak with the Instructor. You would go to room E106 on the day and time that the class is scheduled to talk with the Computer Maintenance and Repair Instructor.

      Best Regards,

      Barbara Barone, Computer Lab Instructor

    • Yes you can because they are offered at different times and day
