We build the world’s most advanced IT simulation training technology, specifically designed to produce certified computer networking and cybersecurity experts. Our simulation engine replicates a $200,000 computer network and security lab, which is integrated with video instruction, text lessons, section quizzes, and certification practice exams. This all-in-one immersive training prepares service men and women for certifications required by the DoD 8570/8140 and produces knowledge and skills that will far outlast passing their exams.

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.
