The course covers theory and practical training in computer hardware, operating systems, networks, communications and printers. You will also cover useful topics to support your employability including health and safety, customer care, CV/letter writing and interview techniques.
Successful completion of the course will give you the Cerco Certificate in Systems and Networking (CCSN) which is recognised by Cerco’s employer partners.
You will also be asked to pay for a DBS check (Disclosure and Barring Service previously known as CRB) that employers require at the cost of £52.
Cerco provides the free training course to quality applicants to ensure that the workforce it offers to employer partners is of the standard required. You are trained to succeed for Cerco.
To secure a place on the course you must first demonstrate your knowledge and technical ability. The first part of the application process is a technical test that helps assess if you have the potential to be a successful IT Engineer. You must achieve a pass rate of 60% to move on to the next step. You can only take the test once.
Cerco employees are known for their customer friendly attitude and positive approach. All candidates that pass the technical test will be invited to a telephone interview. This is your opportunity to show your enthusiasm for the role and ask any questions that you may have.
You will be contacted about an interview if you pass the test. Please present yourself as if you are going for a job interview.
