About the Information Technology Certificate

Computers and the internet are at the centre of modern life. In fact, in western society it is almost impossible to get by without having a basic understanding of IT. For many years, employers have insisted that job candidates are computer literate. However as a nationwide switch to digital systems seems to be underway, we are beginning to need IT skills outside the office as well.

This online distance learning course has been designed for anyone who wants to improve their IT abilities. Consisting of eight informative digital modules, this programme teaches learndirect students everything they need to know about spreadsheets, databases, operation systems, security and much more.

Who should study this course?

This home learning qualification has been specifically designed for individuals who are looking to develop their IT abilities. Whether they plan to use their new skills at home, in the workplace, or as a basis for further study, this course can set them on their way.

Students are not required to have any IT skills or qualifications before they enrol on this course. However, if they do plan to study the material online, we would recommend that they have a basic knowledge of computers first.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of this home study qualification, students will be awarded with a certificate in IT. This certificate will prove to employers that the student is comfortable using certain software, and that they are technologically aware.

The course may also prove useful if students want to progress to higher level study in this area. Degrees in computer science and IT are highly valued by employers in today’s society. Careers for IT professional include but are not limited to:

  • Web designer
  • Web developer
  • SEO specialist
