Software Simulator that lets you be a Virtual Technician?

Posted 10 August 2015 - 06:53 PM

I was wondering if there was some software or website that gives you real world technology technician scenarios (one's you would find if you were a technician for a school or business) to troubleshoot and find solutions for. Kinda like how the sites that have practice projects/problems for developers except for technicians. Something like that or a virtual simulator is what I'm looking for. Anything like this?

I'm pretty sure if you made a VirtualBox and loaded up some version of Windows, it would bluescreen on you pretty quick...

You can always go to tech support forums and answer questions specifically for software problems. It's real world experience and there isn't any fallout if you're wrong.

One such forum is TechSupportForum: http://www.techsuppo...rum.com/forums/
DreamInCode (this site) also has a section like that: http://www.dreaminco...ftware-support/


I don't think any tech practice simulator exists, but the forums can definitely be used for practice solving such issues.
