Unable to see all devices on your patient monitor network?
Having trouble routing data from your radiology department to your PACS server?

In Essentials of HCIT, you’ll learn the key concepts of network connectivity that enable or impair system communications. Hands-on labs teach you building, programming, and troubleshooting switched, wireless, and routed networks. Topics such as virtual local area networks (VLANS), port security, and wireless security are also covered. In addition, you’ll learn the concepts of routing and the roles routers play in your network—forwarding data; acting as firewalls, demilitarized zones, and dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP) servers; and how routers are dynamically and statically programmed to forward data. A hands-on lab gives you the opportunity to implement and troubleshoot a statically routed internetwork.

Please carefully review our cancellation policy and how it applies to your cancellation. Should you wish to cancel your registration, we enforce a time sensitive policy. As you can appreciate, a cancelation with less than four weeks’ notice makes it very difficult for another student to plan on attending. If there is someone else in your organization that would like to attend in your place – this fee will not be charged. The cancelation policy is outlined below:
• Cancellations can be made by email or phone: edservices@ge.com or by contacting 888-799-9921.
• For cancellations made more than 4 weeks prior to the class start date, there is no cancellation fee.
• For cancellations made up to 2 weeks prior to the class start date, there is a cancellation fee of 50% of course tuition.
• For cancellations made less than 2 weeks prior to the class start date and for no-shows (i.e., registered students who do not attend the class and do not cancel in advance of the class start date), there is a fee of 100% of full course tuition.
• GE reserves the right to cancel or reschedule any class for any reason and at any time. GE will not be held responsible for any travel costs incurred due to causes beyond our control, such as, but not limited to, hurricanes, tornados, or strikes.

Low Enrollment:
• GE reserves the right to cancel classes due to low enrollment.
• Classes with low enrollment 15 business days prior to the scheduled date will be cancelled.
