Resettlement and Ex-forces

Trusted Resettlement and Ex-forces Education

Since 1996, CNet Training has educated thousands of Service Leavers, providing them with the skills, hands-on experience and sought after qualifications to enter the lucrative network cable and data centre sectors. Today, CNet is the only industry dedicated education provider in the world to provide both internationally recognised qualifications and official certification for their programs.

CNet is proud to be the originators of The Global Digital Infrastructure Education Framework which forms the benchmark education for the industry across the world. It maps professional education programs to actual career routes and progression throughout the industry allowing learners to enhance their skills, knowledge, industry recognised qualifications and official certifications as they progress. And, of course, many programs are eligible for ELC funding allowing Service Leavers extra help to continue to progress their careers.

Every CNet technical education program has been carefully designed to blend technical knowledge with essential hands-on skills that are needed for the industry. We have an on-going schedule to regularly review the content of each program to ensure it reflects the very latest changes in technology, in addition to preparing students for possible new and emerging industry trends that are just around the corner. Plus, working alongside major companies in the industry CNet Training ensures each program content continues to meet the needs of the industry today and reflects the emerging future trends.
CNet believe that it’s the combination of program design, alongside the quality of expert Instructors, many of whom are ex-Forces themselves, that form the secret of their on-going success.Read more about the network infrastructure industry by downloading our The Digital Infrastructure Industry and Career Overview.

ELC Funding

Before being eligible to make an ELC claim, individual scheme members must have completed no less than six years eligible service (lower tier).

The lower tier (six years service or more) of funding is up to £1,000 per claim instalment. The higher tier (eight years service) is up to £2,000 per claim instalment. Only service accumulated since 1st April 2000, may be counted as eligible service for the purpose of the ELC Scheme.

Service leavers are entitled to make three ELC claims in total. They can only make one claim per financial year (1 April - 31 March), however if they have served between 6 and 8 years they are eligible to aggregate all three claims together.

CNet Supports the Armed Forces Community

"CNet has always supported those who have served and who are currently serving and all those connected with the armed forces. We strongly believe the experience gained in the armed forces provides key transferable knowledge, skills and disciplines to work across the network infrastructure and data centre sectors, plus attributes that can be of huge value to businesses.

CNet employs many ex-forces personnel as expert Instructors who deliver our technical education programs across the globe as well as a number of reservists and I am tremendously proud to have them as part of the CNet team."
