Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)
  In today’s modern home, computers have become a staple like the stove and refrigerator of years gone past. Computers bring information into the home via the Internet; control the thermostat while you’re out of town; they can even turn on the lights and close the blinds for you in the evening. So it comes as no surprise that computers are now being used for “phone calls”. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is the use of a computer for verbal communication -- users are able to use the computer as they would their old phone lines.  As demand for VoIP increases in the home, so does the need for skilled VoIP technicians.  Heathkit Educational Systems (HES) has created a course that introduces the fundamentals and basic principles of VoIP technology. through hands-on experiments and detailed exercises, students will be given a solid foundation for an exciting new career in VoIP.

Introduction to Networking Technologies
  Computers are being used in today’s homes much like they are being used in businesses -- for everything from financial management to research to design.  And as the computer becomes more of an integral part of the home, families are finding that multiple computers are needed to accomplish all tasks at hand, and are networking all of them together. A networked computer provides more security, data space, and at times, mobility (wireless networking).  Heathkit Educational Systems (HES) has developed a course, for the HTI Technician, that provides the foundation for configuring and installing a home networking system. Through a series of hands-on experiments and detailed instruction, students will gain the necessary knowledge and skills to successfully network computers for the home.
