ATICA – the IT People – apprentices wanted

Due to continued growth and the further development of our engineering team, we are looking to recruit two apprentices. Based from our Kent offices, they will work alongside the existing engineering team while they learn the ropes and build their knowledge and experience.

Ongoing training and development plays a large part in the apprenticeships, resulting in a week of dedicated training and education every 6-8 weeks. Much of this is Microsoft’s virtual classroom training, a series of webinars and tests to build fundamental knowledge and to provide the apprentices with a formal qualification (an Infrastructure Technician Level 3). This course includes the following modules, providing a tremendous grounding for a variety of IT roles:

Networking Fundamentals

  • Defining networks with the OSI model
  • Understanding wired and wireless networks
  • Understanding Internet protocols
  • Implementing TCP/IP networking through the GUI and command line interface
