LINX Accredited Internet Technician (LAIT)

Our non-core activity programme (NCAP) was launched in its current format in 2000 to help address the critical shortage of skilled Internet engineers and technicians being experienced by ISPs. The LAIT programme raises skills of those involved in installing, operating and maintaining Internet hardware and software. The course, consisting of three modules each lasting five days is designed primarily for people who already have IT engineering skills but need additional training in Internet-specific technologies.

The three modules cover everything from fundamental networking and routing skills through to advanced techniques such as border gateway protocol (BGP) and multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) and enable engineers to gain experience and expertise in the Internet arena, with the opportunity to achieve this official LINX  accredited certification.

Steve Groombridge of Systems & Network Training talks about the LINX Accredited Internet Technician (LAIT) training programme and tests LINX delegates with example questions at the LINX100 member conference event in 2018.
