    Hi i am a new member great site here for getting lots of help how long has this be going?

    I have had a bad experience with Horizon Training a CCNA course and there were 15 people and teh tutor started at 10am should have been 9 am, then we had 3 20 min breaks and a break of 1 and half hours for lunch then finish 4.30, this went on for 65 days and my lapto they supplied brokedown twice.

    They charged me £1,500 it was awful, i sued them and got the £1,500 back befor ethe court case.

    Been on some good Network and A+ course though with another provider.

    I want to go on an MCSE and a company called compucert.co.uk offer mcse for £3,000 includes 15 days hands on, 7 transcender exams, 24/7 tutor support by email and 24/ online course, 7 sybex manulas etc, is this good value?

    What do you think?

    Thanks for any help for my first post hope i learn how to use this site quickly :D

    Its always woorying I think when a company is offering 24/7 email support as it doesn't mean that you will getan answer back 24/7. Do they do phone support as well.

    Hi and welcome, IT 2005 - sorry to hear of your less than fruitful experience, but in fairness, most people seem to do OK with their chosen providers. It's just unfortunate that sometimes not all goes to plan.

    Hope we can help you tho :)

    Before you go with Compucert find out what office the company is working out of (then let me know please) Compucert has a small room in Cardiff (no telephone and I was told that someone "pops in "about every few weeks) and a closed down office in Swansea, so you might be your wasting your £3000.00 (I think you would be)

    As with spending any serious amount of money, research and research some more.
