LAN/WAN Professional is a nationwide professional IT membership organization. We provide a comprehensive set of technical and professional services designed to help individual members advance in their enterprise IT (LAN/WAN) careers.

What Makes Us Special - We have been servicing the IT community for over 20 years that includes previous entities. In addition, we have a nationwide membership base of professionals (see below). Just as important, our members provide regular input that helps us constantly refine our comprehensive set of services. The following are 3 key features of our membership services that make us special:
Acquire Tech Skills 20+ Times Faster - We offer a comprehensive set of technical services that are designed to help our members acquire real-world LAN/WAN skills 20+ times faster than traditional learning. This is possible because we focus on helping our members acquire practical hands-on skills that you would actually use in the real world versus unnecessary concepts you rarely use.
100% of Service Fees Tied to Success - If you are approved as a member, we invest over $60,000 in services into every new member and allow our members to defer the payment of those services to be tied to their employment success. Since we make such a significant investment in every new member, we only approve members after they have been fully validated to be employable in LAN/WAN.
Proven Professional/Placement Service - Since our services fees are tied to our member's employment success, we have a proprietary and proven and effective system that is not only designed to help our members get LAN/WAN jobs fast but also ensures that they can fully perform the duties of the job. We are able to do this because we know exactly what it takes to get and keep a LAN/WAN job.
LAN/WAN Professional offers membership directly to professionals and NOT corporations, vendors or staffing agencies. This is to ensure that there is no conflict of interest. Our mission is fully focused on helping our individual members attain/maintain their success.
