    Published on: 30 June 2021

    Another group of our students have passed exams, accepted job offers and made brilliant progress along their career pathways. Read on to find out about their successes... 

    Exam Successes

    Congratulations to Paul, who passed his PMP over the weekend after only enrolling in April. 

    Mohammed has successfully sat his 2 A+ exams, his Network+ and his Security+. After a few attempts at his Network+, he was delighted to pass his S+ first time – congratulations, Mohammed!

    Kristian has crammed a lot into the past 11 months, passing the A+, Network + and Security+. He’s keeping up the excellent work and has now moved on to his EC-Council CEH certification

    Giuseppe initially enrolled on a Certified Ethical Hacker collection. He completed all of his certifications, moved onto the CEH, and passed that. He then re-enrolled on a cloud collection this May and has just sat and passed his PenTest+ and CySA+ certifications. We’re in awe at the amount of work he has put in, and it’s terrific to see a student re-enrol to continue learning and certifying with us. 

    Marian was thrilled to find out he had passed his CCNA, and he is now talking to the Career Services team about his next steps. 

    Pedro enrolled in March and has successfully passed his A+ 1001 and 1002 exam to date. Congratulations, Pedro - this is a fantastic achievement for just over three months’ work.

    This year to date, our pass rate for the A+ 1001 exam is 60%. For a tricky exam that’s also very often the first exam our students have taken in a long time — a 60% pass rate is excellent. While our Network+ exam pass rate is at almost 70% this year to date, which is also really positive.

    In 2020, I was made redundant after being on furlough for six months and after being with the same company for 30 years. Since starting with Learning People, they have been extremely helpful, and the online course allows me to study on my time. The Learning People team is always on hand if you need help, either by email or telephone. If you need someone to point you in the direction — they are there to help.

    Gary is getting ready for his Core 2 exam and has just accepted an IT Account Manager role specialising in refurbishing hardware and software. He wanted to break into tech and is delighted that he can use his wealth of customer service experience in this role while continuing to study for his qualifications. He will be able to move into a more hands-on technical position in the future if he wishes.

    Well done to Tom, who has accepted an offer for an FTC role as a Project Executive. We wish you the best of luck, Tom.

    Fiona has a background in retail management and recently interviewed for a Junior Project Manager role, having completed 3 PRINCE2® exams.  Due to her relevant experience and transferable skills, the company she interviewed with felt she would be better suited to a Project Manager role. She’s accepted the offer and is due to start in July. Congratulations, Fiona - we wish you plenty of success in your new role!

    Our students' success is what drives us, and we’re always committed to helping everyone at every step of the way. Get in touch to see how we can help make your career dreams a reality.
