This is an intense course. You should have a minimum of six months’ experience working with networks.

You should also be familiar with the TCP/IP suite of protocols and be able to configure networking on a PC within a workgroup environment.

You will also find it useful to understand the concepts of routing and switching, and subnetting. These topics will be covered on the course but prior knowledge will be beneficial.

Are you ready to get certified in record time?

We interview all applicants for the course on their technical background, degrees and certifications held, and general suitability. If you get through this screening process, it means you stand a great chance of passing.

Firebrand Training is an immersive training environment. You must be committed to the course. The above prerequisites are guidelines, but many students with less experience have other background or traits that have enabled their success in accelerated training through Firebrand Training.

If you have any doubts as to whether you meet the pre-requisites please call (0)8 52 50 01 66 and speak to one of our enrolment consultants, who can help you with a training plan.
