    Hi, has anyone on here used this company for International vouchers??

    http://www.gracetechsolutions.com/certification/voucher/international_a_voucher.asp

    The price is cheaper than the £111 + Vat quoted in the UK.

    :)

    UPDATE 29/11/07

    Voucher purchased and test booked with no problems from above company.

    Vouchers are no longer used for compTIA exams in UK

    International vouchers are only available to take the exams in another country Like the US or Canada.

    "International" vouchers means Europe etc. Although your right in saying the vouchers were no longer being used, and I thought they were off the market. I havent heard/used of that site before, i'd be careful unless you can find someone who has. 8)

    I didn't know that - I saw getcertify4less had empty pages - but didn't realised they were stopped completely - what was the reason? When did this happen??

    I enquired with compTIA directly about the vouchers and yes you are correct about Europe, I wasn't given a clear reason though why they are retired for the UK

    Its a shame really, I was lucky to get the A+ for about 75 quid per exam, paying full price sucks.. :(

    Net+ isnt actually cheap either! Lucky my boss is paying for it I guess 8)

    It does suck, in the prologue to the first chapter in Mike Meyers books it states NO ONE SHOULD PAY FULL PRICE FOR A COMPTIA EXAM, THERE ARE DISCOUNT VOUCHERS AVAILABLE then a list.

    Its should say unless you live in Rip Off Britain :x

    thanks for the replies.

    This is what they replied to me.

    "If you specify the region as UK, then the voucher can be used at all VUE testing centers in UK for sure"

    They are certain I can use the voucher as I did go ahead and purchase one. Will update this thread a.s.a.p

    Hopefully with good news.

    Well I have emailed compTIA so I await what they say, I fear though you have purchased something which you are not going to be able to use in UK as I am on the compTIA newsletter and I am sure if vouchers were usable in the UK again it would have been in one of the issues.

    I will wait till I hear confirmation from compTIA.

    I think I am going to be able to use the voucher. I now have my password/user name for the Pearson site and I get the option of using a voucher code :)

    As soon I have the code I will book using it. The company are very quick at replying to me and to be fair to them they must have sold a few and would want to avoid any extra admin work giving out refunds etc.

    Once you have joined the VUE side getting a test booked is very easy. I did read a few people on here have trouble getting through via phone. Just join the site and relax. I'm in London so had plenty of options inc Just IT who I nearly trained with.

    ok, ok, quiet down in the back row. Stop bragging.....

    I wanted to do Net+ soon also, but at £200+ for the exam, thats going to have to take a bit of work to guarantee a pass - why are they charged so high???

    As I said Rip Off Britain.

    If compTIA confirm to me that what John_G says is correct about the international vouchers then I will let you know so you can get it cheaper :)

    Its a good/bad situation with the boss paying to be honest, its good obviously because it doesn't affect my pocket, but it does put added pressure on you, you really need to pass if the exam is being paid for by the company. I'd completely lost interest in studying for the Net+ at the moment anyway, COD4 has taken over :eek:

    The vouchers at £107? Is that what you paid? So you got 4 quid off?

    I must be missing something here 8)

    Thanks for the follow-up John. It's always helpful to have information like this confirmed by someone actually going through the process. Grace Tech has been around awhile. Wasn't sure if their vouchers were reserved for their own students or available to everyone. Thanks again.
