    So i thought a certain college(my local) had a fee waiver for CCNA courses if you were unemployed, i just phoned my local college and they said no it's a professional course, now i didn't expect to get a freebie but i am certain i phoned up a few months ago and they said that if unemployed then you would get your fees paid, any ideas?

    It varies from college to college and depends if they have funding to cover (or substantially reduce) the fees

    Exactly, it's not generic.

    At my uni the CCNA course was included as an additional free course on top of the HND.... because they were evil and liked giving students crazy workloads. :(

    It depends on the college, some colleges integrate the CCNA with a BTEC course, that way they can get funding from the Government. If it's a stand alone cert, then no.

    I think what might be happening is that hey have changed the course to all fee paying as there is such demand for colleges courses just now well they can make some extra $ - recession etc.. i am just sure i had it in my head that they ha some kind of fudning if you were unemployed.
