The Department of Defense and the United States Army have started migrating to the Windows 7 operating system. The new operating system will replace the Windows Vista operating system used by the military. Taking a step further in this direction, the Division West has started training its computer help desk technicians.
“The Department of Defense and the United States Army are migrating to the Windows 7 operating system, so they want to make sure that all system administrators… are certified to be able to work Windows 7 systems,” said Lt. Col. Kevin Litwhiler, the chief information officer of Division West.
According to Litwhiler, a two-week training course was held in the March month at the Division West headquarters, where attendees were taught to troubleshoot Windows 7 systems, repair them, and “get them back out to the user as quickly as possible”.
The purpose of Division West is to train thousands of Army National Guard and Army Reserve Soldiers for deployment. The Windows 7-trained system administrators of the Division West will not only help computer users in the division, but they will also pass on their skills to computer specialists in deploying units, informed Litwhiler.
