The World's Most Advanced Learning Platform for Real-World Experience

For 30 years we have been refining LabSim to be the worlds most advanced IT learning platform.

We use this platform to give troops real life scenarios to carryout, allowing them to practice the skills they have learned.

It has also proven to be an extremely effective way to prepare people to pass certification exams that fulfill DoD requirements.

8 learning components for helping your troops build competency, get certified, and be mission ready

The LabSim Learning Method

After nearly 30 years of delivering IT certification training to both industry, government, and academic customers, we’ve developed a tried and proven learning methodology that best prepares students for IT certifications and career success and can be adapted to traditional, hybrid, and online learning formats.

* Both the 100% Performance-based TestOut Pro Certification & the associated Microsoft, CompTIA, Cisco, or EC Council Certification Exam(s)

Integrated hardware and software labs let personnel apply their knowledge in real-world scenarios

Our advanced labs simulate over $200,000 of integrated hardware, software, and networking equipment. Service men and women can practice configuring hardware, installing drivers, managing operating systems, and configuring network devices—all within their browser.

“The difference with our network simulations is how real they are. A small example: If you unplug a cable in the network closet, the link light goes out on the switch, the link light goes out on the computer in the office that that port communicates with, and the computer shows disconnected in the OS.”

LabSim's simulated office environment lets students complete tasks in multiple locations.

Give them a second certification when they leave your class

Included with each course is a FREE voucher for troops to take the coinciding TestOut Pro certification exam. These exams are 100% performance-based and lets individuals prove they have working skills by performing tasks in real-world situations. While these certifications are not part of the DoD 8570, they do provide a second substantial certificate that can be added to a resume for civilian careers.

Key Benefits:

  • Truly 100% performance-based exams powered by LabSim’s innovative simulation technology. No multiple-choice questions.
  • No arduous requirements for administering the exams but delivered online and scheduled by instructors or with TestOut.
  • Analytics for instructors and administration to assess certification scores and performance of individual students and classes while seeing comparisons with other scores by state, country, and worldwide

We believe TestOut Pro Certified people have learned to work in extraordinary ways as they have prepared to pass a Pro certification. We believe they have the potential to go on to accomplish remarkable things during their careers.

We are so confident in these Pro Certified individuals and the training they have received that we will back them up with a $1,000 Skills Guarantee.

If any employer finds, after hiring and putting them to work for at least 3 weeks, that they do not possess the IT skills that we have certified under the applicable Pro Certification, then we will pay that company up to $1,000.
