Training Overview

FITS online courses

The FITS training courses were initially offered as classroom based courses delivered by one of our training partners throughout the UK and Internationally. These courses have been running now for over 4 years or so and have been very successful.

FITS Internet Safety
We are pleased to announce now that we have launched our first online course – Internet Safety for IT Users. This is a level 1 course which covers everything you need to know to protect yourself from the growing threats encountered when working on the Internet. This course is now included as part of the advice and guidance available in our members area here.

FITS classroom based courses

FITS classroom based training is currently being offered at two levels, both of which also include an internationally recognised qualification.


The FITS Practitioner course
is the Level 2 certificate in ICT Support in Education: Practitioner. This course consists of one and a half days of classroom work, individual and syndicate exercises followed by a course refresher session and the examination. The examination, which is taken online, comprises 40 multiple choice questions selected randomly from a large question bank. The candidate has 90 minutes to complete the examination following which they are notified immediately whether they have passed or failed. Candidates are able to review any questions that they failed on although they are naturally not notified of the correct answer. The pass mark for this examination is 60%. The cost of this course which includes courseware, exercise material and the entrance fee for the examination is £510.00.

The FITS Advanced course, which is dependent on a candidate having taken and passed the Practitioner level, is the Level 3 certificate in ICT Support in Education: Advanced. This course consists of two and a half days of classroom work, individual and syndicate exercises followed by a course refresher session and the examination. The examination, as with the Practitioner level, is also taken online, conprises 40 multiple choice questions selected randomly from a large question bank. The candidate has 90 minutes to complete the examination following which they are notified immediately whether they have passed or failed. Candidates are able to review any questions that they failed on although they are naturally not notified of the correct answer. The pass mark for this examination is 60%. The cost of this course which includes courseware, exercise material and the entrance fee for the examination is £710.00.

    Good day. I am very interested in accessing this IT support framework training, but reside in the Caribbean. Are there any online training possibilities? Can the framework be downloaded from a website or does the reference manual provide that type of information?

- 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."
