IT Professional Essentials

Our IT Professional Essentials training course will help you to build up essential IT knowledge and skills, to be able to undertake more advanced IT certification training courses, such as our CompTIA training courses. 

As this is an introductory training course, you will not need to have any previous IT experience to get started, making it a suitable training course for everyone. However, it would be beneficial for you, if you have a basic understanding of PCs, Network, and IT jobs in general. 

If you already have some IT experience, or you have an IT related degree, this course would be a good way to revise and refresh your knowledge.
