    Hello all. A quick introduction from me. I'm 47 and don't keep the best health, so I have decided to sign up for the CIW Website Design Manager course with Skillstrain as I can work from home at my own pace. I've been doing web design as a hobby since the late 90s, just tinkering with my own photography site, and doing stuff for friends. It's time to move things up a level and get the knowledge I need to offer my skills commercially (again from home, mostly). Not looking to become a millionaire, just to be free from the dreaded DWP.

    I've seen some of the negative comments about Skillstrain here, and will reserve judgement till I have some experience of them. I'm certainly willing to put in the hard work, and don't expect something for nothing.

    One thing which does concern me slightly is the number of people who seem to have started this course and then disappear from the forum. Are they all too busy to post, given up, retired to the Bahamas? Some feedback would be most welcome from those who are further down the line with this training.

    *and now I have found some more recent posts, so just ignore that comment*

    *cough* I DID say a quick introduction, didn't I? Looking forward to participating here.
