The trainees were given lectures about the different computer hardware and software and their purposes and functions. They were taught how to manipulate and configure computer hardware and software through hands-on activities.

At the end of the training, the trainees were expected to learn how to assemble, disassemble, maintain and troubleshoot computer devices. The overall training could prepare the trainees for the TESDA’s national certification Computer Hardware Servicing NCII.
