  • Achieving C-ID designation for ITIS 120 does not guarantee C-ID designation for BUS 140.[1]

    [1] Aug 10, 2015 C-ID removed notation of BUS 140, as BUS 140 and ITIS 120 are not truly cross-listed courses.

  • The ITIS FDRG has updated this descriptor to reflect current terminology use and to provide an opportunity to align course outlines of record which map to this descriptor to include preparation for the CompTIA IT Fundamentals+ certification exam.
