The PC Maintenance 2020 course is designed with the average non-technical user in mind. The goal of this course is to demystify the language of basic PC maintenance, while empowering the viewer with the ability to perform basic tasks to help maintain their PC without all of the technical jargon that is usually associated computing technology. The viewer will look at maintaining storage devices, reducing dust and debris, firmware updates, component replacement, startup and networking issues and more.
Hey we're talking about the new course
PC maintenance with Wes Bryan, Wes,
how are you?
>> I'm good.
>> Tell us a little bit about yourself,
and what the course is all about?
>> Well I've been teaching tech
courses now for the past 10 years and
typically what I teach, or basic computer
components, basic hardware skills,
basic networking skills and
even basic computer security skills.
And, I've been teaching people
on how to pass various courses.
One of the courses that I
teach Mr Conte a plus and
it really gets people set up to do like
help desk, work as an IT technician.
In the industry may be doing break fix,
fixing computers, and
again just helping people get
their computers straight.
>> Okay, well now PC maintenance,
that's a new course we're launching.
Tell us a little bit about that.
I wanted to put together of course,
that would give people just a basic
overview of some of the different things,
that various things that they can do
to keep their PCs up and running.
And that's really, if you maybe
have issues with your hard drives,
if you have issues with any of your
storage devices, maybe power issues,
maybe you have problems with overheating.
We can, just take a journey together and
we can kind of figure out how,
one of the things that what are some
of the things that causes this.
What are some of the things that we can,
And then finally,
how can we solve some of these issues?
>> Well, I will tell you this, I'm in
your target audience, but who is this,
of course targeted towards.
>> This is really just for anybody,
anybody that's, they do it yourself or
the person that maybe is at home and
isn't sure if they
can do some basic troubleshooting and
some basic PC maintenance.
This is really for them, we live in
a day where working from home is very,
Working remote is very important.
And one of the reasons I really like
putting this course together is, so that
those people that rely on those computers
so much that really mean a lot to them.
They can take some basic steps
to maintaining them, and
keeping them operational.
>> Is there a certification
involved in the course.
>> No, this isn't a certification course.
So, we're gonna try to strip out a lot
of the specifications in jargon, and
where acronyms and jargon might come in.
Try to properly define that, so that you
don't have to have certifications under
your belt to understand
what we're talking about.
>> Keep the alphabet too minimum.
>> That's right, keep it too minimum.
>> So, what topics are going to
be covered exactly in the course?
Well, we're gonna take, we're gonna take
a look at things like overheating issues,
and we'll look at overheating and how it
affects different various components.
We're gonna look at things
like some of the storage,
problems that we have with storage,
whether it be your computer running slow,
whether it be maybe the hard drive or
solid state drive has failed.
We'll look at things like that,
We're gonna look at
networking issues as well.
We'll look at some things that
happen on wired networks.
We'll look at some things that
happen on wireless networks,
will also take a look at
things like firmware, and
what we can do when it comes to firmware
and some of the issues that we could face.
So, just generally all around,
it's gonna be from top to bottom.
Some things that you can do inside of
your PC to again make them operational or
stay operational, I should.
>> Sounds like an exciting and
educational course, I cannot wait.
And, if PC maintenance is something
that you'd be interested in, and
I think you should be.
