    I get a TON of mail at work from them, but I have no direct experience with them. I usually just pitch what they send. Now that I think about it, this post doesn't help AT ALL. :) Sorry.

    I have taken five or so exams at the Global Knowledge in Coventry.

    Haven't attended any courses, but the facilities seem good and there is onsite car parking.

    They are one of the bigger players in U.K I.T training. Courses are a bit pricey, but i've found the instructors very knowledgeable. Mostly M.O.C courseware or adapted versions of it.
    Beware the cisco courses though, most of their kit seems to be centrally located and requires telnet access rather than actually getting a bit of hands on.
    Most locations have on site cafes and parking etc, I can recommended the centre in Wakefield.

    Global Knowledge is pretty good from my experiences with them.
    They've got good talent and materials, but they're expensive too. They target corporations. I won't pay for them, but I have no problem if my company does :biggrin

    You can get the same training from other training partners or go the self-study approach.
