    Hi every body,

    Im new here and just became a member today.

    I am currently working as a arboriculturist and fancy a total career change and seeing as I love working with computers as a hobbie I think this will be a good place to start :)

    I was doing abit of research into courses for comptia before I found this forum, I was totaly shocked at the price of the course O.o (home learning).

    So here I am! I will be reading the forum carefully over the next couple of weeks to find out what I really want todo and to get help from people who have been there and done it.

    Hello again!

    Rhein

    Well IT work does tend to be a bit more regular I expect. However have a look round the forums, theres a lot of people looking for a break in IT, getting regular gigs can be hard even in IT, and often requires continuous hard work.

    And a bit of luck from time to time doesn't hurt either! That said, I work in IT so if I can do it I'm sure you can :)

    Welcome:)

    If your shcked at the prices of home learning courses why not just buy the books and study yourself. Quite a lot of people on here do their studying this way because it's cheap and you can do it at your own pace.
