Computer Repair and Loaner Program
Wanted: Used Computers

Used computers are put to good use at Edmonds Community College. Donated computers give students in the college’s PC hardware and support classes much needed hands-on experience in computer repair as they train for jobs. Then, the college loans the refurbished machines to local non-profits and its students provide ongoing maintenance.

The college’s computer repair and loaner program, which has been running for five years, provides about 160 computers a year to nonprofit organizations — from Work Opportunities across the street to schools in South Africa.

Ways to participate:

  • Donate your used computers, monitors, and peripheral devices.
  • Get low or no-cost repair of laptops and desktop computers including assistance with software installation and updates, memory issues, and troubleshooting.
  • Use rebuilt computers at your non-profit. The college will loan repaired computers to organizations and maintain them at no charge. As a Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher, the college can also offer operating system software at no cost.
  • Take a class. Earn the certificate. Students get hands-on training and experience in A+ Hardware Support I and II classes, Computer Information Systems 161 and 163. These classes can be taken individually or as part of a Desktop Support Specialist Certificate. For more information, call 425.640.1902 or email cis@edcc.edu.
