Many people are new to the training and sometimes do not fully understand the process of completing a course and achieving their goals.
In this section we will give you a better understanding of the whole course process and show you just how simple it is to gain a qualification with Linx Security Training.
More often than not, people have misconceptions about completing qualifications. Some of the comments often made are:
I’m not good with exams. Don’t worry, we’re here to help and guide you throughout the course. We also offer FREE exam re-sits for peace of mind and at the end of the day it is our job to help you so you can pass successfully.
Are these courses difficult? Security courses are not the same as a College course. These are short courses that teach you the essentials as regulated by the SIA and awarding body to help you gain the right qualification to work in Security.
Will I have to write essays? No, most of the courses have multiple-choice exams where you are highlighting A, B, C or D from 4 possible answers.
Linx Security Training provide thorough advice, help and guidance throughout the training courses you have selected to make sure that our students get the right help they need in completing their course successfully. We make sure that we answer all questions that our students are concerned about and it is our duty to provide the best service that will give all of our students confidence in taking courses with us.
At Linx Security Training we will help you complete your course successfully and give you guidance every step of the way!
