    Hi,

    Sorry haven't heard of that (by that doesn't mean anything). The only thing that I've know of is if you're on one of these benfits:

    CTB, HB, Jobseekers (IB), IS, WTC & Pensions Credit

    You can get the courses for free at your local college - academic and professional (MS, Comptia, Cisco).

    Learn direct offer the A+ as far as I know through the job centre at a college in Durham where you stay at untill the end of the course, but you must be unable to work through some sort of illness or unable to work because of the lack of skills to get it free. If you can't prove any of that then you have to pay full price and its not that far of a grand.

    Have you thought about self study if finances are tight?

    By that I mean you just get the relevant books then take the exams when ready.
