I highly recommend Impact IT Training as it is the perfect choice for anyone looking to start (or develop) their IT career. Noman is very knowledgeable, experienced and supportive. The courses were exactly what I was hoping for. Looking forward to CEH course in September!
Went for CCNA, Security+ and CEH, needless to say, Khurram has been an excellent teacher in the networking and security field. I passed all 3 courses with labs, revision and communication provided by them. CCNA was brilliant, it set the foundation I needed, coming for a telecommunications background, security+ was enjoyable and a straightforward certification, this prepares you for the final CEH exam which was an amazing learning experience. Thank you Impact!

I completed 3 courses with Impact IT Training so far, and passed my Comptia Security+ and CCNA, which I'm very happy about! I am currently studying for my CEH exam here too. The courses I did were intensive, so the pace was fast. The trainers were very supportive and helped me to pass my exams. Noman taught me Comptia A+ and he was a very kind teacher. I had Khurram for my CCNA and for my CEH course. His lessons were very comprehensive and he made sure the students had all the materials in order to understand the courses fully. I would recommend Impact IT Training to anyone wishing to persue an IT-related career.
