    Hey all,

    My boss at work recently agreed to fund the exams I have taken and hope to take in the future. When I asked about this he agreed to pay for one I had already taken and also the next one I was planning (A+ OS) which I passed last week.

    Now I bought vouchers for both those exams online from Getcertified4less, as they seemed pretty cheap when you factor in how strong the pound is against the dollar. My boss said that he was going to look into ways of getting the exams / vouchers cheaper for all future tests as there are quite a few technicians in the company who also want to take exams.

    So my question is (yes I got there in the end :) ) does anyone know of a way for a UK business to purchase exam vouchers in bulk, or cheaply etc...

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks.

    First off, nice one Modey - that should take a bit of heat off you :)

    I was just thinking - it might be worth contacting VUE or Prometric directly to discuss this. I'm sure this must happen often with businesses buying in bulk - can't imagine this is the first ever case.

    HTH.

    Hi Modey, For comptia certs have your boss check out this page.

    http://www.comptia.org/sections/business.aspx

    As a CompTIA member, your business can receive significant discounts on CompTIA certifications.

    I would also check out MS and cisco site to see if they provide something like this too. Do a little research and then present it to your boss. If you need any help with the research let know. I don't care to pitch in at all. :)
