IT Training Certification

IT Training Certificate Series goes online

Instead of offering long workshops that can be hard to fit into busy schedules, we're moving to on-demand training that lets you choose the best timing for you. You'll have more control over when and how you learn, but still benefit from the same high-quality content and an engaging experience.

We are currently transforming all of our Certificate Series workshops into self-paced Canvas courses. Initial course offerings are available now, and more will be available soon.

IT Training has launched our first fully online series, the Excel End-User Certificate Series, with five courses available now.
