If you’ve ever considered working as a networking engineer or specialist, but felt you lacked the knowledge or skills to launch your career, this might be what you’re looking for.
 
This course bundle is aimed at absolute beginners to IT who want to start a career in networking or just develop their skills in this area. The course assumes you have no technical knowledge of IT whatsoever. To understand networking and practice it at a technical level, you must first possess an understanding of basic IT literacy as well as certain technologies, which you will be taught through this course. Through this course, you will gain a series of globally recognised networking certifications from CompTIA and Microsoft. You will also possess a set of networking skills you can apply to a vast range of IT job roles.
 

Who are CompTIA? Watch this video to find out.

 
From the beginning, we teach you about basic IT literacy, basic software features and functions, basic networking, operating systems, and basic security threats. From there, the course steps up a notch exploring these areas in more depth. As you progress through the various stages, your knowledge of networking will gradually begin to develop.

An example of the CompTIA Network+ certification you can gain through this course.

 
The course bundle is comprised of five separate courses in total. Two of which are skills based only with no exam, and three certification courses with a final exam after each course. The final course being the Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) in Networking Fundamentals (98-366). The first course (IC3 Computing Fundamentals) provides a soft introduction to basic IT terminology, concepts and technology.
 
To help you grasp the concepts and develop the skills within the course, simulators are also included. These allow you to practice your networking skills learnt on the course. In the IT world, these simulators are otherwise known as ‘Live Labs’.

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 and best of all… any where in the world, providing you have access to a laptop, PC or desktop computer, and an internet connection. 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. Your tutor will PowerPoint slides, illustrations, diagrams and give demonstrations to teach each class.  Most lessons are also interactive, prompting the learner to participate. This might involve answering on-screen questions, participating in tasks.

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.
