    Hi,

    has everyone heard of www.koenig-solutions.com?

    They are an IT training company, from the UK I think, which sends people to India.

    They also claim that 95% pass the MCAD...

    Thanks!!

    Hi,

    Sorry- I didn't introduce myself simply because I don't have much to say- I'm one of those people who know nothing about computers but my big brother is thinking of going to India to take one of their courses, and I'm just trying to help...

    His little sister

    Hi. Glad you found us.
    I have to say that although this company looks very good you don't have to travel to the other side of the world and spend thousands to get most certs.
    Have a think about what you want to do (MCAD?) and there are plenty of books, sims and advice on here to get where you want.
    On the other hand If you want a boot camp it does look good to me. :D
    Best of luck, let us know what you decide. :D

    Hi BabyBoy,

    Maybe it's just me, but I find this a crazy, ridiculous, sinister and damn well worrying prospect ! A company in the UK will take your cash to send you to India to train in IT certs, presumably to come back to the UK to use them ?

    Is it just me, or is that totally wacko !!! ???

    Pinch of salt, bargepole, call it what you will - I ain't buying it !!!

    I think the idea behind it Gav is that they pay the Indian people a lot less for training.
    This way the customer can almost have a working holiday at the price that a centre in the UK would charge.

    Sounds crazy to me too!! But it is a fab idea, holiday and training!! :D

    I just did a very quick search on Google, they sound like a reputable company...but need to do more research when I have time.

    BabyBlue, let me know what your brother decides. I'm interested! I like the idea of studying up in the Himalaya Mountains, away from the hustle and bustle of London life.

    But it does sound a bit dodgy. Hmm...

    So wait, hang on - you get 50% discount on boot Camp training (I presume this is of equivalent standard to what you would get in the UK), and then they chuck in a free holiday to Goa or the Himalayas ?

    Call me an ageing cynic, but ....no, wait - there is no but !

    Yeah, my gut feeling tells me it's crazy. I know what you mean. Cost wise, I don't see the point of it either as I'm self-studying anyway.

    I just like the idea of a holiday and doing something different :rolleyes:

    Dont understand how you can learn an entire topic in 5 days, unless all you want is enough cramming to pass the exam! Out in the practicle world you wouldn't have a clue.

    I was looking at CEH here, looks a good place, the idea primarily if, you cant grasp it is that...

    most People in there own circumstances dont have as much time on there hands as others, some out of despration or wanting a job change would study and become familiar with certain apects of what they are studying and then go to India to get lab experience and not to have major distractions such as work, family or World Of Warcraft.

    the way it works is you pay thos cost for the cost and they provide the food, accomodation, well all the facilities....

    The only so called catch is.... you need to go to India for it!

    suppose it is the IT equivalent of going abroad for operations, eye laser surgery, etc, and other things that UK hospitals can do just as well.
