    Hopefully just entering the IT world via cerco. After 29 years working at Vauxhall Motors, as Vehicle tech.
    At fifty the opportunity of a large cash lump sum and a pension, gave me the chance of a career change.

    If you haven't already gone with them (cerco), I'd advise you not to. If you've already done so, then good luck.

    I haven't paid a deposit yet. Have there been any problems with them?

    Well, you pay alot of money for training, culminating in a cert. Now I hear the training, while hardly extensive, is good. But the cert you get is a cert that the company made up - it's not a real cert, despite what they may tell you. So it won't have much value with anyone who doesn't know about it, and not many people do.

    So I don't think you'd stand a chance against someone who, let's say, has the same amount of experience/qualifications/whatever as you and is vying for the same job, but has a "real" cert.

    I've been there before, I mean for the "interview", where they talk about how their students go on to be successful here and there blah blah blah. The fact is that while the training might be good, it certainly isn't worth the price. And the resulting cert is a joke.

    Been there seen it done it £4-5000 good training. Poor job finding. They give you advise on how to find a job yourself.
