Regional ICT Support Technicians

Technicians are available to directly support First Nations schools to share ICT technical advice. The technicians visit schools as often as possible given time and resource constraints.

The technicians assist with technology and network supports; connectivity problem solving; server administration; computer, printer, and/or smartboard set up and training; and mentoring community IT staff for capacity building within communities.
