    Hi All,

    I have been in I.T for around 18 months now and feel it is time to get accredited and move my career on a bit.

    I have been thinking about trying for the MCSE for quite a while, but since working on an NT eradication project this has been confirmed to me as my best route forward (fingers crossed).

    I am also in a bit of a quandary as to take advantage of distance learning with training company or self study using virtual labs. I think self study would probably be my best option as my company promise to supply materials and pay for exams.

    If any of you can think of any advice for me I am always keen for any input.

    Thanks,

    Gary

    Hi :D

    Welcome to the forum. I'm not sure where everyone has gone, but They'll be along soon.

    You're going to have a great time here and make loads of new friends. I've been here a while, and when I get stuck with things, there is always great advice to be had.

    Are we all watching the footballl, lads??

    Anyway, welcome to you.

    The boys obviously haven't mastered the ability to post and watch telly at the same time :) footy is just about to kick off.

    Welcome to the forums - the best place for you to check out with regards to your hopes would be the Training and Development forums.

    I myself signed up for a provider, but that route certainly isn't best for everyone, whether it be due to spare wallet space or learning style.

    Enjoy mooching around the forums - and good luck with your studies!

    See the certifications in my signature? All of them were gained through on-the-job experience and self-study, so you can guess what I'd recommend. :)
