FITS benefits for technicians

FITS provides technicians at all levels with an internationally recognised qualification that is specifically geared to ICT support in educational establishments.

To gain accreditation, technicians are required to sit an external examination at one of several centres around the UK. Preparation for the examination can be undertaken in two ways. We have created a full set of study material covering all of the FITS processes which is supplied as part of the accreditation pack.

We also run regular training courses allied to the accreditation that are delivered by accredited FITS trainers in various locations around the UK. It is our aim in due course to be able to provide a training course at a location near to where you are so that attendees don’t have to travel long distances. However, until we have a full complement of trainers on board training will be available at more central locations.

To learn more about what’s involved in accreditation and a list of training centres follow this link to accreditation.

    I refer to Susan Petersons comment
    Just how, pray – does dust get into a hermetically sealed Hard Drive (unless a user has “disassembled it” in which case – this is their look-out – this sounds, to me, like a con ?

"... Indeed I do see FITS as an adapted for education variation of ITIL, as the industry standard (ITIL) is quite hard to implement "by the book" in an educational organization"
- Todor Kotsev - ICT Services Manager/ITIL Service Designer

“… absolutely perfect content for our current IT environment. Extremely relevant.” “… George was a brilliant presenter. If we were to have any further training we would like to request him."
