What is the Practice Labs solution?

Our solution consists of live (not simulated) IT Practice Labs and Exam Preps aligned with certifications from leading vendors such as CompTIA, Microsoft, Cisco and VMware. We have also built our own custom titles, working with subject matter experts in key topics such as cybersecurity, or in popular programming languages like Python.

Accessibility is central to all our product development and our accessibility team includes two graduates, Andrew and Josh from the Royal National College for the Blind.

How does it work?

We host, maintain and deliver hundreds of pre-configured Labs (hardware), each of which house a series of Lab Devices.

As users log into our Practice Lab Environment (PLE), where the actual practice takes place, they will be prompted to fire up the appropriate Lab Devices associated with whichever Practice Lab/Exam Prep/Custom title they are accessing at the time.

Our PLE can be integrated with leading Learning Management Systems (LMSs) or accessed 24/7 via any web browser.

The Practice Labs library expands on an ongoing basis, in line with the requirements of our partners and customers.

All our modules can be ‘mixed and matched’ to create curriculum-based or system-linked Custom Labs.

Beware of impersonators! We own the intellectual property of the Practice Labs solution having conceived and built it in-house. And we have invested heavily in infrastructure so we can guarantee robust quality control.
