LabSim is a series of training suites by TestOut Corporation that provides preparation for those who want to earn certifications from different associations and vendors. It contains training videos as well as a wealth of resources to ensure that students are able to maximize their online education. The combination of video lessons, demonstrations, written lessons, and lab simulations not only allow learners to gain knowledge, but also to try out what they have learned through simulated real-life situations.
The courses offered provide training for certification for: CompTIA’s A+, Network+, Security+, and Linux+; Microsoft’s MCITP, MCTS, and MCSE; TestOut’s PC Pro and Network Pro; (ISC)2’s SSCP; CSI; and Cisco’s CCNA.
Each training suite contains numerous training videos, section quizzes, written lessons, demonstrations, and lab simulation exercises, as well as hundreds of exam questions. These are delivered online so students can have instant access their lessons anytime and anywhere, and continue from where they left off regardless of what PC they use. Their progress is automatically saved, and tests receive automatic scores. Moreover, completed works can easily be seen by instructors. Moreover, because instructors can track the time their students spend on lessons as well as their individual performance reports, they can assess their performance effectively.
