Cisco Routing and Switching with hands-on lab training
With our instructor-led on-line sessions, you can receive quality training anywhere you are. All you need is a reliable internet connection. You can attend the course from a PC, Mac or, if you can handle the inconvenience, even a smartphone. ProctorU have a handy tool to test for general online training PC and internet connection readiness at https://proctoru.com/testitout/. Check out the virtual MEF certification courses we have available right now: MEF online courses
Sometimes work schedules mean that training has to be done for large numbers of staff, in a short period of time. Training sessions with large groups can, and have been successful.
Our trainers are experienced
in effectively managing large groups for the best outcomes which includes:
- Moderated smaller group break-out sessions, and,
- Q&A sessions specially formatted for large groups so no-one feels "left out."
Talk to us about large groups today.

"Effective training delivery programmes that actually work"
Classic instructor-led classroom training at a venue of your choice. We will even come to you if that suits your training needs best.
Highly effective for large-volume roll-outs, our online training includes interactive demos and practical exercises that can match classroom training.
Adobe Captivate animated slides, videos and demos create a highly interactive training experience with downloadable modules for individual study.
Customised one-on-one coaching is a highly effective way to bring busy C-Suite personnel up to speed with your technical material.
"Practical, time-efficient training programme development"
Try one of our online one-to-one coaching sessions! All you need is a reliable internet connection, decent PC (especially for labs and other practice exercises), and optional web-cam. Sessions that include lab exercises allow the students to work on practice networks in a seamless simulated environment. Virtual learning has never been so practical, or simple.
Our one-day intensive coaching sessions are particularly suitable for technical personnel needing an understanding of specific networking concepts, or busy managers with a requirement for a comprehensive technical primer ahead of meetings. These are also particularly handy for those who are not suited for classroom learning, or the other extreme, self-study. With our one-to-one online coaching sessions, you can ask as many questions as you like, go over difficult concepts and review the recorded session later at your leisure.

Aragami Tech & Digital Director Helen
Brookes has almost two decades' experience technical training in the
telecommunications sector, having worked extensively in most of
Western Europe, North and South America, and India. Early in her
trainer career she worked as a proctor on the Cisco EMEA and worldwide
certification circuit. She has since worked for one of Europe's
largest B2B data networks providers, Colt Telecom, as an IP/Cisco
trainer as well as a Carrier Ethernet technical training consultant.
Helen has been involved in large training programmes involving thousands of course attendees spanning several different countries. More recently, Helen has worked as a certification trainer in Singapore, prepping students for MEF's CECP certification exam.
“Helen has a great attention to detail,
takes time to understand the requirements of her audience and
works extremely hard to produce excellent courses which have
always been very well received.
She is very competent, highly motivated and above all a genuinely lovely person to work with.
Overall highly recommended.”
“Always top professional and always top feedback. She was brought back again and again when we had a gap in team resourcing...Top quality work and always a pleasure to work with.”
“I have seen Helen consistently perform very well with course delivery on different formats; classroom, hands-on labs, web-based training, and more recently, the development of animated instructional slides for self-paced learning. Helen consistently gets brilliant reviews and feedback from course attendees from her dedicated and focused, yet friendly, teaching style. She is a real pleasure to work with..”
