Getting your IT certificate is easy and you can do it right from your desk. Using our proprietary online skills recognition tool, we can easily take you step by step through proving your skills without you having to leave your home or office.
Our online trainer will guide you through the recognition process one simple step at a time. They will ask you some questions to prove your knowledge on each subject, and then ask you to demonstrate your skills from your own computer. Providing references, your resume or work history, and examples of work you have done can also help the recognition process and our trainer will give you opportunities to include these as evidence.
You don’t have to know it ALL to enroll in a skills recognition course. For every subject that you CAN prove your skills, we can give you a nationally recognised credit in that course.
