MTFS Learn offers a unique hybrid learning experience for learners that require flexibility. Students are provided a robust package of learning materials, labs, and exams for a 12-month period.
The program is self-paced, but students will have access to instructor office hours for support and tutoring throughout the 12-month duration of the training. We will work with students to ensure they meet benchmarks and are well-prepared for their certification exam.
Hybrid Training Programs require strict assessments prior to enrollment to ensure students are adequately prepared for the demands of an advanced program.
Students will receive access to all Certmaster self-paced training materials, Certmaster labs, practice CompTIA exams, and an actual CompTIA exam voucher code.
While students have access to the training materials for 12 months, our goal is for students to complete the program and be prepared for the certification exam within 3 months. However, we understand that everyone learns at their own pace, so we provide 12 months of access to ensure students have plenty of time to study and prepare for the exam.
