Congratulations are in order for Air-IT technical apprentices Jake Shipley and Josh Turner who have both recently passed a number of exams which form part of their on-going training to become fully qualified Microsoft Certified IT Professionals (MCITP).
Josh has passed his essentials exam which is the first part of his Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) A+ certification, an industry standard qualification which validates the skills and knowledge necessary for a career as an IT support technician.
Josh will be completing his practical assessment in the coming weeks to achieve his full CompTIA A+ certification. The qualification will prove Josh’s competence in areas such as installation, preventative maintenance, networking, security and troubleshooting.
Jake has completed his CompTIA Network+ certification, adding to his previous CompTIA A+ qualification achieved earlier this year.
The CompTIA Network+ certification is designed to test the competencies of network technicians. The qualification has proved Jake’s skills and knowledge in networking technologies including: network design, hardware setup, configuration, installation, troubleshooting, security and management.
The qualification has expanded Jake’s technical skill set and understanding of networking infrastructure and will enable him to successfully support clients should they encounter any problems with their networks.
Jake is entering the final months of his fast track Microsoft Advanced IT Apprenticeship Scheme. He is currently studying to complete his Windows 7 configuration exam and will become a Microsoft Certified Technical Specialist (MCTS) before moving onto to the final set of exams to become a fully certified MCITP.
