eCourses4You’s courses include:


Expert Instructor-Led Training

eCourses4You uses only the industry’s finest instructors in the IT industry. They have a minimum of 15 years real-world experience and are subject matter experts in their fields.

Visual Demonstrations & Multimedia Presentations

Our courseware includes instructor-led demonstrations and visual presentations that allow students to develop their skills based on real world scenarios explained by the instructor. eCourses4You always focuses on real world scenarios and skill-set development.


Quizzes & Exam Simulators

eCourses4You’s custom practice exams prepare you for your exams differently and more effectively than the traditional exam preps on the market. You will have practice quizzes after each module to ensure you are confident on the topic you have completed before proceeding.

This will allow you to gauge your effectiveness before moving to the next module in your course. eCourses4You Courses also include practice exams designed to replicate and mirror the environment in the testing center. These exams are on average 100 questions to ensure you are 100% prepared before taking your certification exam.
