    Who are CompTIA? Watch this video to find out.

     
    How is each course taught?
     

    All courses are online and self-paced, meaning you do it in your own home, in your own time, at your own pace.  Each lesson is pre-recorded allowing you to pause, fast-forward, skip sections, or go back to another lesson if you need to.  The lessons are multi-media based, which means video and audio are used to teach the lessons.  Most lessons are also interactive, prompting the learner to participate.  This might involve answering on-screen questions, participating in tasks, and using simulators as if you were using the real software program.

     
    How long will it take me to complete each course?
     

    As mentioned above, our courses are self-paced.  Some people finish their course faster than others.  Each certification course is between 12-30 hours. If you choose to only do one of the certification courses from this bundle, then it will take you less time than if you do two or three or all of them.  No matter what though, you will always have 12 months to complete your course.
     
    How do I book my exams?
     
    When you’re ready to sit your exams, email [email protected] with your request along with the title of the exam you wish to take. We will then send you an email with instructions on how to complete your exam booking. The CompTIA exams for this course must be sat at your local test center, which we will locate for you. The Microsoft exams can be sat at home, online. You must have a working web camera to sit these exams.
     

    Watch this video to learn more about CompTIA certifications.

     
    What do I need?
     

    All you need is an internet connection and a PC.  While most of the lessons work on MACs, we recommend you use a PC for the best performance.  Certain parts of the course may not display properly on older MACs.  Once you’ve logged into your course, you may be prompted to down certain free plugins such as Java.  Just follow the on-screen prompts.

    Add experience to your CV with Live Labs

     
    If you’re looking to get ahead of the crowd and don’t have any technical experience, then you might want to consider adding live labs to your course. Because many IT jobs take place at the virtual level (i.e. behind a keyboard and mouse), the experience you’ll gain through a live lab is very similar to experience you’ll gain in the workplace.
