Practice Labs – The IT Competency Hub

Hands-on experiential learning through live labs.

Product Type
Age Range

Practice Labs is an IT competency hub where students can practice their IT skills, prove their proficiency to assessors and future employers, and support their career progression.

The Practice Labs solution consists of live (not simulated) IT Practice Labs and Exam Preps aligned with certifications from leading vendors such as CompTIA, Microsoft, Cisco and VMware. The Practice Lab Environment (PLE) can be integrated with leading Learning Management Systems (LMSs) or accessed 24/7 via web browser.

Practice Labs help cement the theory and knowledge gained from IT education by giving students the chance to practice, learn from their mistakes and gain confidence within a safe, live-lab environment. Exam Preps provide students with the opportunity to check their readiness for testing or certification.

The Practice Labs Environment also serves as a work experience hub, where users can gain mastery via a limitless number of real-world scenarios, emulating those they may encounter in the workplace.

The Practice Labs library currently consists of 360+ titles, made up of over 3,600 modules and in excess of 16,000 individual exercises. All modules can be ‘mixed and matched’ to create curriculum-based or system-linked Custom Labs.
