Brian Ferrill

A lifelong fascination with technology led a varied career in technology. I have over 20 years of experience supporting end users, and small businesses. On top of that, I have been an Information Technology instructor for Edmonds Community College, where I instructed on CompTIA’s A+, and Network+ material. During that time I created curriculum for not only those courses, but also for CompTIA’s Security+ certification. I currently hold the following certifications: A+, Network+, Server+, Cloud+, and Project+.
