    Hey mate I know your new and it's always difficult to work out how these sites work on the forum. But if you need to ask about training providers, can you start this question/thread under the training & Development section.

    Cheers! :biggrin

    Also why has your mate changed course?

    Tell him to dip it in yoghurt...

    Sorry, force of habit.

    If he's got credit with them, he may as well use it as he's not going to get a refund.

    I think I know why he's changed his mind! :blink

    One of m8 also went to OZ and the land of Kiwi's (NZ). He came back a changed man. 8) He said New Zealand is like what Britain used to be like before Politically Correct arrived!?? Lot's of green friends, with not a housing estate for miles. :p

    He said that in order to get a visa he needed a large sum of money in the bank and to be skill/trainined in either, plumbing, building, hairdressing, plaster, or in IT.

    So he dropped his course as a motor mechanic and became a plumber and now lives in Melbourne. He said he travels through a place called Sunshine west everyday??? Eh I can't believe there's such a place as Sunshine West (Where's Blue Rinse when you need him??) :ohmy

    Maybe he thinks doing IT will get a foot through the door to another country.

    I'm not sure if ICS is a good provider. I've heard mixed reviews about them, most of them very negative.

    Maybe hes should do a little research on the web before taking the plunge!

    Sorry but I can't put links of other forums on CF website without getting my hands slapped by the staff of CF :(

    However this question has been asked before and here is the link to it!

    http://www.certforums.co.uk/forums/search.php?searchid=74397

    Since your mate has credit then what has he got to lose??

    Just make sure he sticks to his studying!

    but this isn't sms. you're not limited to 160 characters. keep it up and you'll find that more and more people will stop reading those incomprehensible posts, simply because they can't be bothered anymore. i'm sure that is not your intent.

    I use real language even when sending texts. Seriously, there's Internet shorthand (WTF, LMAO etc), and there's SMS text (m8, ur etc). One is for SMS, one is for the Internet. Guess which is which. :D

    u must have a problem mate,if shorthand stuff bothers you,and by the way my sms is enabled to 1000 characters.and your right it's not my intent,but i dont think i will change that as it does not bother me. and could you be a little more open and explain why its INCOMPREHENSIBLE.
    thany you

    I just think things like ur and m8 is lazy English. They even let school kids get away with it in their homework which I think is scandalous. And don't forget, their are plenty of old-timers here that don't text and folk who's first language is not English, and they have plenty of knowledge to help you out. You're shooting yourself in the foot if your going to type posts they can't understand.
