In the latter case it is up to the examinee to determine the correct number of answers (2 or more)
It should also be noted that the exams are marked by hand which allows examinees to write extra comments (if they feel it necessary) to justify answers where they feel there may be some ambiguity. These comments are taken into account when the exams are marked.
Why should I take the LINX exams?
The LINX exams test competency in key skill areas determined by the LINX membership over a 12 month period. The exams do not test product knowledge but focus on the key concepts behind the technologies. The certifications assure a certain knowledge level easing the initial job applicant screening process for employers whilst examinees receive a recognised proof of their achievements.
How do the LINX certifications compare with other certifications?
Exams are technology based rather than product based. The pre requisites for the courses are probably the best gauge to the comparative levels of exam. See the LAIT courses FAQ for details.
LAIT 1 is comparable to CCNA but LAIT 1 does not test product knowledge. network+ certified students have taken the LAIT I course and exam. They have found the course beneficial and found the LAIT Ie exam more difficult than the network+ exam.
What concepts are covered?
The exams are firmly based on the training courses. See the course cards for full details.
For how long is the certification valid?
At this stage, there is no expiry date on the certifications and there is no intention to introduce an expiry date. However, LINX reserve the right to introduce expiry dates in the future.
What if I fail?
Retakes are available without attendance on courses.
Why Choose Us
SNT trainers score an average of over 90% on the three main areas of:
- Ability to teach
- Technical knowledge
- Answering questions
We limit our maximum class size to 8 delegates; often we have less than this. This ensures optimal interactivity between delegates and instructor.
"Excellent course. The small class size was a great benefit…" M.B. IBM
We write our own courses; courseware does not just consist of slides and our slides are diagrams not bullet point text. A typical chapter provides clearly defined objectives with a chapter overview, slides with text underneath, a quiz at the end to check the learning of the students. Hands on exercises are at the end and are used to reinforce the theory.
