    Great, while i'd admit re-trainning offenders with new skills so they can work once on the outside is a good idea, I can't see many IT employers letting ex-convicts loose on thier networks. Too much risk involved with personal data and privacy, and could you see an employer saying "hey i see you got the security+ qualification while inside. Thats just great!"
    Convict, "Yeah well i was put inside cos i was caught trying to crack the password on a few bank accounts. I figured, hey if i had teh Security+ cert then maybe i woulndt have got caught!"

    Bright idea.....?
