When a company has employees that possess certain skills, it can garner a competitive advantage when seeking to attract customers. Certification can also contribute to increased productivity, because studies have shown that certified individuals are generally quicker to implement and design new technologies. And of course by knowing that their employees are certified, IT managers can feel more confident about their ability to implement and support a network infrastructure.

"Superb location for study. No distractions. Great food and other supplies. Really friendly and helpful lecturer who assisted us all throughout the course. Recommend pre-study and you have to understand that this is not a holiday camp. You will be studying for many, many hours each day. My hours were 8am through 11pm, even though the course states less.. but is it well worth the hardship. "
