Learning247 Online Training Mega Library

What I would highlight: As an IT professional, I need to constantly stay up to date with changing technologies – across a fairly wide area of connected subjects. I also sometimes need to update a lot of my certifications, as the companies I contract with are often implementing new technology changes, and they want proof that I’m up to speed with the latest versions. I maintain the Learning247 Mega Bundle membership as a constant and evolving library of reference. It has a huge range of training courses that cover just about every subject I could ever need. It’s so useful to just be able to jump in and out and access explanation content on so many subjects. I even find myself watching refresher videos on older areas which I haven’t used in a while. As an IT Pro, it’s an invaluable source of information, and I highly recommend it. It’s really easy to access and use, and being online, I can use it anywhere. Great value too!

Learning247 Online Training Mega Library

What I would highlight: I recently got my first job in IT, after obtaining the CompTIA A+ and Network+ certifications. At last, I'm doing the job I want! I’ve been using Learning247 since I started training, and I’ve found the courses really simple to use. The videos are simple, clear and I also found the workbooks & flashcards really helpful. I’ve now upgraded to their full library membership so I can continue getting certifications at my own pace, as I hope to get into more advanced areas of network management over the next few years. I’d certainly recommend Learning247 courses to anyone.
What could be improved: Everything was positive.
