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.
Are there exams involved and how much do they cost?
After completing each course you have the option to become certified. In order to do this, you must sit an official exam. The CompTIA exams normally require you to attend a testing center. We can advise you where your nearest testing center is. If you are doing a Microsoft exam, then you may have the option to sit the exam at home under observed conditions using a webcam.
We can provide you with complete guidance on the exam process from locating your nearest testing center, to booking, and receiving your certification.
We do not cover the cost of exam fees in this bundle. This is something you will have to cover yourself. For your convenience we have published the exam costs below:
- CompTIA Network+ N10-007: £176 UK / $294 US
- CompTIA Mobility+ MB0-001: £176 UK / $294 US
- Cisco ICND1 and 2: £132 UK each / $165 US each
- Cisco CCNA: £239 UK each / $300 US each
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.
