Student testimonial: Training has validated my skillset
There’s nothing better for us than hearing back from our students about how training with the Learning People has helped their careers.
This week Harry, who has recently passed his CompTIA A+ with us, and who is now studying for his ITIL and MCSA certifications, shares his thoughts on his learning journey so far and his role as an IT Infrastructure graduate.
Why did you decide to study with the Learning People?
“Being unemployed at the time I started studying, it is a great way of validating my skillset to employers and also keeping my knowledge up to date.
“I chose the Learning People specifically because after a lot of research they were the people with a good reputation who I knew I could trust, based on a personal recommendation.
“Other online, web based courses seemed to have very sketchy reviews and I was not sure whether I could trust them.
“The Learning People have delivered on my CompTIA A+ certification – I’m newly qualified as of April 2014.
“I didn’t want to make that sort of investment in my time and money with a company I couldn’t fully trust.
“Exam fees were included in my package and I had 24×7 support, with a good learning interface to work around.
“For my requirements the option of online training was the best solution, and the Learning People provide just that.”
How easy was it to get started on the training?
“I was able to access the training straight away, and am able to do so from any desktop computer I have access to.
“Being able to save it all offline using the course manager makes it easier to train when I have restricted access to the internet.”
How well do you feel you are supported by the Learning People team?
“Getting the vouchers for my CompTIA A+ exam from the company was easy and hassle free.
“When I did have a problem I sent an email and a member of the StudentCare™ team quickly took care of it.
“I set the daily emails from the mentors to be emailed to me before my exams, and was able to use them to have a final brush up on my knowledge.”
What difference has becoming certified made to your career?
“It has validated my skillset, showing that I am a capable IT technician.”
June 2014 – Since Harry was kind enough to share this testimonial with us, he’s now passed his ITIL Foundation exam – congratulations from everyone at the Learning People Harry.
