Part Time 52 Weeks Online

What will I learn?

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’.


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.

What are the requirements?

All you need is an internet connection and a device, such as a smart phone, tablet, laptop or PC, and an internet connection. To get the most out of the course, we recommend you access it using either a laptop or desktop computer through Google Chrome.
