Cert 2 IT

Welcome to Peter Faulks's

Certificate II in Information Technology Site

Unit 1 ICAU1128B Operate A Personal Computer 20 Hours


In these classes I use Worksheets and Web Quests as the main source, many worksheets can be used across several ICT lessons so in some instances the students may have already undertaken the work in Cert II IT or Cert II Bus or in ICT classes like AIT

Worksheets explain the elements of the topic with questions and test sections for students to answer

Web Quests cover topics where students must find information on the Internet or in Resource material and answer all questions.
