IT PLACEMENT FAQS
These are some of the 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.
Are your 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.
Can I use these qualifications outside of the UK?
Official IT qualifications like CompTIA, Microsoft, Cisco etc are all internationally recognised. Exams are strictly managed by exam institutes across the globe to ensure the highest standards.
What finance options do you offer?
We offer finance through our third-party finance partner, Omni Finance where you can spread the cost of your study package and exams over affordable monthly payments. This is the preferred option for our students not paying in full. As an alternative where students do not qualify for Omni Finance, we offer monthly spread payments in-house (ITOL Finance) which are interest-free and cover the cost of the course component only. ITOL Finance therefore does not finance the cost of exams. You can however at any time contact the exam booking team and pay for exams as you need them.
Are exams included in the price?
As stated above, if you have paid in full or been accepted through Omni Finance, then 3 official CompTIA exams and one official Cisco CCNA exams are included in the price. If you are paying via our in-house spread payment plan (ITOL Finance), then exams are excluded but you can pay for these at any time by contacting our exam booking team.
What support do you provide?
You are supported by a team of tutors, mentors and recruitment consultants to help you qualify and get work in a professional IT environment.
Once you have completed your exams, you are then supported by our recruitment team. They will provide you with a professional CV review and Linkedin profile, job seeking advice, interview advice and support you each step of the job seeking process. Our aim is to empower you, so you have all the skills needed to secure interviews, master interviews and land the job you want to get. These are skills for life and help you at any point in your career when you want to change jobs. You will proactively work with our recruitment team as they support you.
Why must I complete my exams before getting a job?
Most companies now require entry level IT staff to be CompTIA A+ certified as a minimum. Adding further exams like the CompTIA Network+ & CCNA helps you stand out in the job market and opens doors to more jobs you are suitable for. Hiring managers consider qualified job-seekers to be a lower recruitment risk who can hit the ground running and be more productive quickly.
How long do I have to take my exams?
You must pass the CompTIA A+ and CompTIA Network+ exams within 6 months to qualify for the job guarantee, however you can take up to 1 year to take all your exams if the job guarantee is not important to you. Students on this package typically pass their CompTIA A+ and Network+ exams within 6 months and then take their CCNA exam.
A rewarding career enables you to grow and develop. This package lays the foundation and kick starts your career in the IT sector. You will harvest what you invest in yourself. After this programme you have learned new skills and validated your skills by passing 4 official certification exams. This adds value to your CV and opens doors to career opportunities where you can further grow and develop your career.
You have access to live labs where you can practice what you have learned on live IT equipment in a controlled environment.
When can I get recruitment support?
You can get recruitment support once you have passed both CompTIA A+ exams and the CompTIA Network+ exam. Please contact our recruitment team once you have passed the above exams so they can start working with you.
How long before I can start working?
That depends on how long it takes you to pass both CompTIA A+ exams and the CompTIA Network+ exam. It also depends on where you live and the number of opportunities near you. Most learners secure either contract or permanent work in IT within 4 months of passing these exams.
Can I start working before I qualify?
If you hold a UK driver’s license, own you own car and live in England, we may be able to place you with our partner company. Our partner company provides IT services to government organisations and large companies across the UK. They can take on up to 50 new people a month from ITonlinelearning to work in contract roles. If these opportunities arise, our recruitment team will be in touch. Sometimes we can place you in these roles prior to you passing official exams. We however encourage every student to focus on their studies and passing their official exams if you are serious about a rewarding career in IT.

How does your job guarantee work?
To qualify for the job 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 being a UK resident for at least 5 years, having a good command of English, paying your study package in full or 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.
Can I opt out of recruitment services and your job/ money-back guarantee?
Yes, you can opt out of recruitment services and the job/ money-back guarantee. If you do not need these services, the cost of your package will be reduced, however this can only be done prior to registering for this study package.
What is the best study path for me initially?
Start with CompTIA A+, followed by CompTIA Network, the Cisco CCNA course and lastly study the CompTIA Security+. That will give you a solid foundation level in technical, networking and security. 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.
What is the average study time for the courses?
This varies greatly from person to person and their ability to absorb information. The recommended study time is a minimum of 30 hours study time for each exam course. As the CompTIA A+ course has 2 exams, the minimum study time is therefore 60 hours.
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 you tailor a study package for me?
Yes, we can tailor a study package for you based on your experience level and 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 at that time 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.
