    Advance Diploma in ICT Systems Support

    Hello. My name is Amit. I am learning a course Advance Diploma in ICT Systems Support. I am facing issues with studying this course as I don't have the relevant resources to learn from. I have the following topics to cover for exam
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Unit 501: Plan for the delivery of ICT support services and assist in the acquisition of ICT systems :

    Determine customer requirements for ICT systems and support services
    Evaluate available ICT systems and services against customer requirements
    Prepare and present suitable options for the acquisition of ICT systems and support services
    Develop plans to ensure that the ICT infrastructure delivers the required functionality, capacity and level of support

    Unit 502: Customer Support Provision

    provide technical support to customers
    gather and evaluate feedback from customers regarding the improvement of the technical support provided
    improve customer use of ICT by analysing trends
    provide remote technical customer support
    provide coaching in technical skills for customers

    Unit 503: Install, configure and integrate networked hardware and software

    Carry out risk assessment and ensure Health and Safety procedures are followed
    Survey the user environment for installation of hardware equipment and systems
    Install hardware equipment and systems
    Install and configure systems software
    Expand (by integration) ICT systems to allow additional facilities
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Can you please help me find some good books which cover these 3 main topics or any suitable website or resource I can study from. I have exam next month and I am not in a position to appear for it now but if you please help me that will be great.

    Regards

    So the college/school you are attending / using for this course has not given you the appropriate materials for your course. That is a little odd, don't you think?

    * 502 is just talking to customers mostly to see what they need/want and providing solutions using that as a basis
    * 503 is mostly just following the workplace health and safety requirements, documenting their pre-exisitng systems and then planning new systems based on the information gathered about their preexisting systems and the information learnt in 502
    There isn't much theory for that apart from product specifications and formulas (for example: what sized systems do i need to handle say 5000 exchange users), some of that is more the business said compared to the IT side.

    What a strange thread!

    Are the training materials really this poor Mr Reed?

    Well, unless I am missing something huge, there are no direct training materials for these, other than those created by the centres themselves. I work with apprentices who are taking these assignments who, for the best part have learnt the material on the job, along with support work from myself. I do know that colleges have taken this up as a guided learning scheme of work, but as mentioned in this case the college should supply you with the necessary material.

    To all those above, how long have you got before the tests? Under centre and awarding body rules I cannot give much away, other than advice based on the topic descriptions.
