CNet has been announced as an approved provider by ELCAS allowing Enhanced Learning Credits (ELC) to be used towards its range of technical education programs.
The ELC Scheme allows Forces Leavers, or those that have left the Forces within the last ten years, to obtain funding for training and education programs of their choice. It encourages life-long learning amongst members of the Armed Forces.
Forces leavers are able to use their ELCs for programs across CNet’s Global Digital Infrastructure Education Framework. The world-renowned programs provide the perfect opportunity to enhance and broaden skills already gained in the Forces and give extended knowledge, official certifications and qualifications to help give career opportunities.
Programs available to Forces Leavers from CNet span the entire education framework from the Certified Network Cable Installer (CNCI®) Level 3 BTEC program all the way through to the world’s only level 7 Masters Degree program in Data Centre Leadership and Management.
The CNCI® is one of CNet’s most popular resettlement programs and teaches everything the learner needs to be able to confidently and accurately prepare, install, test and certify copper and fibre optic cabling systems. The standard CNet 10-day CNCI® program has been exclusively adapted for Forces Leavers and offers learners an extended 20-day program which includes a two-week work placement with one of the top installation companies in the UK. On successful completion leavers receive official certification with a post-nominal title, two level 3 BTEC qualifications and ECS card eligibility, an ECS card is required to allow individuals to work on-site.
Andrew Stevens, CNet Training’s CEO adds, “We are pleased to be able to offer our range of technical education programs to Forces Leavers to utilise their ELCs. It’s such a great opportunity for individuals to gain the very latest technical knowledge, qualifications and professional credentials to prove their skills within their new careers. We really enjoy contributing towards the new careers of Forces Leavers and look forward to hearing more career success stories in the future.”
CNet has been designing and delivering professional network infrastructure education and training programs since 1996 and is the only industry dedicated education provider in the world to award both internationally recognised qualifications and professional certifications.
