James Ehren IT Career Switch

Course: IT Technician Traineeship
Placement Date: May 2021

Why did you start the Traineeship?

After being made redundant from my previous job, I decided to retrain into a field that I have always had a big interest in. I found IT Career Switch online and decided to sign up as I loved the look of the course and the resources that would be made available.

What did you enjoy most about the Traineeship?

The videos are really informative and the course overall covers a much broader range of IT skills than I was expecting. This really allowed me to get a thorough understanding of the world of IT. The live labs practice exercises more than prepared me for my A+ exam and have proven to be so helpful in my first role in the IT field. The personal tutors are always just an email away to help with any topics that you need assistance with. Overall I felt really supported from start to finish.

What's your current role like?

Amazing. I have joined a great company with a fantastic team that have helped support me through the first few weeks to find my feet. It’s been challenging, but massively rewarding and I’ve already learnt so much. I am so glad that I decided to take the plunge and chose IT Career Switch to help me retrain.
