We’re proud to announce that two members of the Air-IT Service Desk team have recently achieved industry-accredited certifications, bringing them one step closer to completing their fast-track Microsoft Advanced IT Apprenticeships.

Air IT support technicians with CompTIA certificates

Support Technicians David Mear and Charley Clarke

David Mear – Technical Apprentice

Air-IT Technical Apprentice David Mear, who joined us at the end of 2012, has just passed the demanding Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) Network+ exam.

The Network+ accreditation is an industry-recognised certification that establishes David as a qualified networking professional. A rigorous exam tested his in-depth knowledge across key areas of networking technologies, including network design, installation and configuration; trouble-shooting; security; and management – which we are pleased to say he passed with flying colours.

Since joining the Air-IT Service Desk team, David has already passed the CompTIA A+ certification. Now that he’s gained Network+, he’ll move on to his final set of Microsoft exams before qualifying as a Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP).

Charley Clark – Technical Apprentice

Charley Clarke, who joined Air-IT at the same time as David has also successfully achieved the CompTIA A+ qualification. This is a two part certification that required Charley to pass a comprehensive written exam and practical assessment.

Passing CompTIA A+ shows that Charley has the skills and knowledge that he needs to pursue a career as an IT support technician. The qualification covers a range of areas such as hardware installation and preventive maintenance, networking, troubleshooting and security management.

Charley’s next move will be to follow in David’s footsteps by working towards the CompTIA Network+ certification, before taking his final set of exams to become a MCITP.

Well done David and Charley!

Everyone at Air-IT would like to congratulate David and Charley on passing their CompTIA certifications and we wish them every success in their future achievements.

It is always extremely satisfying to find that our continual investment in staff training and development has paid off, as our support staff successfully expand their technical skill set, knowledge and capabilities so that we can continually improve the quality and delivery of our support services.
