Hands on Bootcamp
When we started providing IT training courses back in 2006, we were shocked to discover that most training manuals were almost exclusively dedicated to theoretical knowledge. Apart from a few examples of commands to use or basic configuration guidelines, you were left to work through volumes of text without ever knowing how to apply what you have learned to live equipment in the real world.
Let’s fast forward 12 to 13 years and very little has changed in the training industry. We still wonder how, when around 50% of your exam marks are based on performance-based or hands-on skills and knowledge, that many books still give very little and sometimes no regard to equipping students with the skills they need to both pass the exam and then become able earn in their chosen career as a network, security, or cloud engineer or whatever your career path you choose.
Our boot-camps, also referred to as the “ASG Difference” are here to transform what you have learned in your e-Learning and/or study guides into valuable skills you will be using from day one on your job as an IT, network, security, or cloud engineer. For example, we don’t just teach DHCP, instead, we show you how to configure a DHCP server, which addresses you shouldn’t use, and which parameters you can allocate to hosts. If the protocol isn’t working, we show you what the probable cause is and then how to fix it. Does that sound more useful? We certainly hope so.
We choose the most relevant parts of the exam syllabus and at times use free software or free trials to walk you through configurations and troubleshooting commands step by step. As your confidence grows, we increase the difficulty level. If you want to be an exceptional IT or Cloud engineer, you can make your own labs up, add other technologies, try to break them, fix them, and do it all over again.
