The Skills Academy – IT Fundamentals 2015

The Skills Academy IT Fundamentals workshop is designed specifically to build skills and knowledge at the early stages of a career in IT. By covering topics at an overview level, this workshop is seen as a stepping stone before taking on more advanced and technology specific subjects. The IT Fundamentals workshop is also viewed as a modern alternative to the Microsoft MTA, as this DSA workshop takes only three days and has up-to-date practices relevant to today’s current IT infrastructures. Skills Academy workshops offer a better way of learning by building the skills and confidence required to work in a real world IT environment. With a more time efficient and ‘hands on’ approach to training, resulting in hundreds of satisfied students, businesses have benefited from improved IT productivity and a rapid return on investment. Places are limited to only six per workshop guaranteeing each student an in-depth level of support to maximise their development.
