IT PLACEMENT FAQS
These are some of our most frequently asked questions. Please fill out the form below for one of our Career Advisors to call you to answer any further questions you have and to help you get your new career journey started.
How do I pay for my training?
To make investing in your career easy, we offer 3 options to pay for your studies. If you pay in full or via our finance option with Omni Finance, you have your exams included. If you pay using our third option which is monthly spread payments, then exams are not included. However, with the spread payment option, you can book and pay for your exams at any time as long as this is done within one year of registering. Our Advisors will help you through the payment process and make joining our programme easy.
Are you courses accredited?
Our multi-media, tutor-led courses follow official curriculum and prepare you to take the official exams. We are also a CompTIA Partner and authorised training centre for BCS (British Computer Society), PeopleCert, EC-Council and APMG.
Are exams included?
3 official exams are included if you have paid in full or paid via Omni Finance. They include both CompTIA A+ exams and the CompTIA Network+ exam. If you are paying via monthly spread payments, you will not have exams included, but can purchase and book your exams at any time. You must take your exams within 12 months of registering.
What support do you provide?
You are supported by a team of tutors, mentors and recruitment consultants who support you with your studies and coordinate your job opportunity. They will also encourage you to continue your studies, so you gain more qualifications and a stronger CV.
You have access to cutting-edge live labs for the CompTIA A+ course where you can practice what you have learned on live IT equipment.
The IT Field Technician opportunities are found across the UK. In some geographical areas and closer to main cities in England there are more opportunities. We do not have opportunities in Northern Ireland. If you are from Northern Ireland or other remote parts of the UK, please talk to our advisors about other opportunities like our IT Support placement programme.
Is passing the official CompTIA A+ exams essential?
Due to the level of work required, we can place you in our partner company, without having passed your CompTIA A+ exams as you will be well supervised and trained. However, most companies now require entry level IT staff to be CompTIA A+ certified as a minimum. CompTIA A+ is the global de facto certification for entry level IT technicians and IT Support professionals. Having passed official exams validates the skills and knowledge you now have. The CompTIA A+ certification helps your CV stand out in the job market especially against the many jobseekers that are not qualified. Hiring managers will also consider you to be a lower recruitment risk who can hit the ground running and be more productive quickly. If you are serious about a career in IT, then take and pass your CompTIA A+ exams as a minimum. This package also includes the Network+ exam, which you study after completing the CompTIA A+, which will enhance your skills and CV further.
Why will I benefit working for your partner company?
Our partner company is a technical services company established over 30 years ago that provides technical services to some of the biggest private and public sector organisations across the UK. You will benefit from hands on practical experience in a professional IT environment which will enable you to grow your professional portfolio of skills.
To be put forward to our partner company, you must have a UK driver’s licence and a car. Some organisations are not easily accessible via public transport. As a field technician, you will at times be required to transport IT equipment and also drive a hire car/van. Please ask our advisors about our IT Support placement programme if you do not have a UK driver's license and car.
How long before I can start working?
You study the CompTIA A+ course, pass our internal assessment and attend our partner company’s assessment day. Most students are offered a contract within a few weeks of attending the assessment day. So, it all depends on how much time you can dedicate to your studies. On average it takes about 4 months per student as a lot of our students work and study part time.
Can you tailor a study package for me?
Yes, we can tailor a study package for you based on your experience level or taking into consideration studies you have already completed.
If I run out of time, can I renew my training?
You can renew your studies for another year if you need to. You can also add other courses to meet your career requirements. We have a renewals team and a renewals advisor will be in contact as you near the end of your study term.
How does your money-back guarantee work?
To qualify for the money-back guarantee you must pass both CompTIA A+ exams and the CompTIA Network+ exam within 6 months of registering with us. In the unlikely event that you have not secured a job in IT within 12 months of passing your CompTIA Network+ exam, we will refund your study fees less the cost of your exams subject to you conducting yourself in a professional manner, accepting reasonable job offers and working proactively with our recruitment team. It is also subject to you paying your study package in full and If you are paying via spread payments, it is subject to you not missing any monthly payments. Our Terms and Conditions / Terms of Learning also apply.
What is the best study path for me initially?
Start with CompTIA A+, followed by CompTIA Network+ and then an operating system course like Microsoft Windows 10. That will give you a solid foundation level in technical, networking and operating systems. If the CompTIA A+ is too challenging initially, start with the CompTIA IT Fundamentals course. Your tutor and your mentor can help you and advise you.
I’m already working, can I study around my current job?
Yes, this study and placement programme is flexible and designed for career starters and career changers that might be working in jobs that do not align with their career goals.
Can I upgrade this package with Cyber courses?
You can add in-demand cyber courses to this package. This includes industry leading courses like the CompTIA Security+ and CompTIA CySA+ that will help take your skills to a higher level where you can start to specialise in this high demand area of IT.
