    Like a few of the other members I seem to have drifted over here from another popular site and after a few days to look around I must say it also looks like a friendly place to be.

    Since December I've been studying at a local training centre. This is after quitting my job; moving to Manchester and deciding to take some time out in the attempt to gain employment in something I enjoy doing.

    It has been mad because despite having a bit of experience building PCs and installing/fixing Windows I had no real knowledge of networking so I won't agree with anyone who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks :lol: but I'm slowly getting throught the MCPs and hopefully I'll be able to put the same enthusiasm into looking for a job once I achieve my little goal of the MCSA.
    The need for a few beer tokens after the bills are paid is calling... :wink:

    Big welcome from all of us, I'm sure, Taz :P

    You sound like you're in the same big IT boat as the rest of us, so grab an oar and enjoy your time here - this place is all about helping each other, and just relaxing when that's all you want to do :wink:

    Have fun ....

    Thanks guys. I get the impression that this site is about having a bit of fun whilst you study. :P

    Luton Bee. Maybe having no previous networking knowledge has been an advantage. As I skipped Win 2000 by going 98>XP Pro on my home system I've not been able to take anything for granted and I've started with a clean sheet. I think the fact that I might have had to put a little more work than someone typically studying for N+ or the first couple of MCPs actually got me into good habits for the beast....

    Hiya McSmoothie I notice yourself and a few other familiar faces are hanging around in here :) Mind you I might need to scream for help on one of your favorite certs from time to time. I managed to bag a free course for the 70-224 because I was lucky enough to be taking a MOS exam last friday and cheeky enough to pipe up that I'd do it when our tutor turned down a spare place because she had a class that week :twisted: At least I'll know where to find you.

    PS Is it okay to post details about a training centre in Manchester that offers the Network+,70-210 & 215 as well as Excel and Word courses free to the unemployed with previous relevant IT skills ? As certforums has been set up by TSE course members I thought it wise to ask first.
