Which track is right for me?
If you are coming completely new to the industry and have no prior knowledge or skills in IT then our Desktop / 1st Line Support Programme is going to be the track most suitable for you. If you have some knowledge and or experience in IT, perhaps you’ve built your own computer and installed windows before, then our Server / 2nd line support / Network Engineer programme will be the most suitable for you.
What is desktop / 1st line support?
First line support normally involves dealing with customers, clients or employees directly to resolve their issues. Normally the issues are fairly basic. Typical issues will include printers not working, computers not turning on or not connecting to the network and around half of all problems will only take a few minutes to troubleshoot and fix.
Course duration: approximately 3 months.
What is Server / 2nd line support?
Second line support should take over a support request once it has been established there is a problem with the supported 'system' and it is not to do with user training, user environment, etc. Second line support will liaise with third line support for any highly technical issues. Second line support is usually the middle-man between first line and third line. On this track you will cover Microsoft Server Administrator, Active Directory and configuring Microsoft networks, as well as the fundamentals of network engineering and could computing. Typical issues will include installing, configuring and supporting servers, networking equipment such as routers and switches, and virtual machines delivering could services.
Course duration: approximately 6 months.
HOW DO YOU GUARANTEE A JOB AT THE END OF THE TRAINING?
Joining our work placement programme and getting a job in IT is as easy as 1, 2, 3.
- Get trained
- Get interviewed
- Get full-time permanent well-paid employment
There is a big difference between teaching people how to pass an exam vs. how to apply knowledge in the real world. While it is possible to pass exams without proper training, unfortunately many think that just passing the exam is all that’s needed to get a job and then wonder why when it comes to interview time they don’t have much luck.
The answer is simple. It’s an interviewer’s job to assess, not if you know how to pass a test, but if you know how to apply the knowledge you learned in the real world. If you don’t then they are going to be able and you’re not going to have much luck in landing a job.
Having trained and placed more than 800 people into jobs with companies included BT, Rackspace, Amazon, Cable and Wireless and many other leading blue chip firms we know exactly what employers and looking for. We are so confident that if we can’t place a candidate into an entry level IT position once you’ve finished your course… we’ll give you a full refund for your training. It really is as simple as that.
How long does the training take?
We have several different career path options for you to choose from. These options are dependent on two things:
- your current level of knowledge and experience
- the job your seeking to gain once you have completed your training.
Depending on the track you choose the training can take anywhere from 2 to 6 months on average to complete.
How long does it take to get into a job once I have completed my training?
On average it takes anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks. It could take less, it could take more, but on average it takes around 4 weeks.
What happens if I don’t get a job?
Don’t worry, we’re here to get you into employment and that’s what we’re good at. However we do offer the assurance of guaranteeing employment or your money back, so if we were not able to place you into employment within 90 days of finishing your course we would give you a refund.
