Looking to enhance your skills through computer-based training? CBT Systems publishes a wide variety of self-paced technology instruction, with a comprehensive library containing more than 900 interactive education software titles. Its training covers a range of client/server, mainframe, Internet, and intranet technologies.
CBT Systems has many offerings
So you want to get started on your self-paced training, but don’t know which direction to turn? CBT Systems’ library has curriculum planners that link to individual course descriptions, making it easy for you to find what you want. You can also download the course catalog for a comprehensive listing of all CBT’s offerings.
If you’re looking for professional certifications, CBT Systems prepares you for the big exams in Microsoft, Novell, Lotus, Oracle, Cisco, A+, IBM, Informix, Intel, Sybase, and Project Management. It even offers exam preparation courseware for 11 certification bodies covering over 40 certifications and 90 exams—with more tests on the way.
Of course, all this training comes with a price tag. Prices range from $49.95 for a single course to $3,000 for entire course suites. Free demos are available on selected titles. You have the option of downloading the demos or having them delivered to your home or office.
CBT Systems offers complete educational programs to individual IT learners, companies, governmental agencies, and educational groups. It offers discounted pricing to accredited institutions, which is a nice incentive. The programs are available for PCs and Macs and don’t require special equipment. CBT Systems also provides technical support for any products you purchase. And best of all, CBT courses:
- can be restudied until the desired level of knowledge is attained and
- can be done at any time and at the student’s pace.
This is a great site for finding CBTs for any application you can imagine. For those in the process of getting certifications, the Certification Planner will be a plus. Once you select a Certification Planner, it shows you all the courses and exams required for completing the certification. From there, you can choose the CBT you want to purchase, and it tells you what topics are covered.
Most of all, I like the fact that the courseware includes a consistent easy-to-use graphical interface that leads you through the subject. It simulates the technology and requires you to interact with the course. If you’re a more advanced student, you can skip course modules you’ve already mastered.
