Live Labs

Real world experience from home

In today’s world of complex IT systems and technologies it is essential that IT professionals and those new to IT are able to demonstrate how to use and understand vendor products and software. Using our Livelab, you can develop your practical IT skills in a safe working environment without the need to invest in your own hardware and software. With the ease and convenience of the Internet we provide you access to real equipment that brings theory to life and gives you a greater depth of technology understanding. You are also provided with our integrated lab guides which walk you through a variety of topics.

“This is not a simulation but access to the actual equipment you would expect to find in any work place”

On completion of the livelab you will have that all important practical experience enabling you to hit the ground running in your new role. It plays a key part in the hiring process with companies as you are able to demonstrate hands on experience along with the theory. You also have the added benefit of being better prepared to pass the official certifications later on.
