Step 1

Select a vendor product / technology focus. To become certified you must pass the authorized exam(s). In most cases, exams are performance-based requiring you to complete specific tasks during the exam to prove your knowledge and understanding of the technology rather than memorizing information.

The best way to prepare for a certification exam is by having hands-on experience with the technology. You can prepare for certification with classes at ONLC Training Centers.  Many of the courses we provide are vendor-authorized. hands-on, instructor-led training. We also offer approved self-study courses for some vendors which is ideal for those who cannot miss work for training or want to focus on select aspects.
