Step 1 – Online training

Complete a selection of professional, accredited and industry recognised IT courses by CompTIA, Microsoft and Cisco. The training is delivered via multimedia rich video tutorials, presentations and quizzes, through a portal that you study from home.

You can log into the portal at any time, meaning this can be completed around any full-time job. The emphasis of step 1 is to learn all of the theory before beginning practical training. This takes around four weeks of full-time study or six-to-eight weeks of part-time study to complete.

At the end of step 1, you will sit a short online multiple-choice assessment to ensure that you’re ready to move onto step 2.

Step 2 – Live lab

Our cutting edge live lab will give you the practical hands-on training that you will require from the comfort of your own home. Live-lab is real computer equipment networked together and conveniently accessible over the internet.

Our hosted platforms are configured to imitate real-world configurations by providing sufficient hardware not only to carry out tasks but also test the impact of those changes. From the browser, you gain administrative access to the relevant devices giving you complete control to carry out either your own configurations or follow the lab guides to configure specific technologies that are required for the relevant CompTIA exams.

Step 3 – CompTIA A+ exams

You will finally be prepared for the official CompTIA A+ certifications. We will firstly release extensive mock tests for you to practice on and once you are ready we will book your official exams.

CompTIA is international leaders in IT certifications and having the CompTIA A+ will not only qualify you as an IT Technician in the UK but across the globe.

90 Minutes per exam, maximum of 90 questions per exam.


"I have just started my new role and it’s all thanks to ITCS. I was working full time in my previous career and the whole process to switch into my new IT role has taken around 6 weeks for me to do. I’ve always wanted to work in IT but was never quite sure where to start. I've now just started working as an IT field engineer and I couldn't be happier!" - Brett Johnson

"I can't recommend IT Career Switch enough, I did a lot of research before making the commitment, what sets them apart is no other company out there offers training, official exams and a money-back guarantee if they don't get you a job, all for £696. I am very excited to say that I will be starting my IT Technician role next week." - Mohammed Ahmed

"I registered onto the IT Technician Traineeship around 9 months ago as I was sick of my dead-end job. The whole process was well explained and easy to follow. I was placed in a companies IT department and I am now responsible for looking after over 150 computers, laptops and tablets." - Tom Maxwell

About IT Career Switch

At IT Career Switch, we are devoted to connecting quality IT professionals with some of the most innovate and front-running companies in the UK.

With more than 20 years of combined experience in the industry between the 3 founding directors, we know how important it is to find the right candidate first time. Countless times we have come across companies who have tried to recruit first-line or IT technicians, only to find when they start, they don’t know the difference between a keyboard and a motherboard.

They then have the option of looking for somebody, hopefully, better, to replace them. They spend valuable time giving training. This is why we are here. This is why the IT technician traineeship is the future of entry-level IT recruitment.
