2015 Winter Core Training - Critical Information

2015 Winter Core Training Handbook

Laptop Preparation (attendees must complete these steps)


The Office of Information Security at RIT has outlined a number of guidelines that every computer must meet before being able to connect to the campus network. These guidelines protect both attendee computers and the RIT network from malicious software. Your computer must meet these requirements in order to use our network. Be aware that having network access is a requirement of all PLTW course curricula. If you do not attend to these requirements, you will not be able to use the computing resources that are necessary to complete your course.

Laptop Preparation
