    Greetings Chris. Welcome to CertForums. If you have very basic knowledge, you'd probably want to take a course that maps pretty closely to the A+ certification. The A+ is an entry level hardware and OS maintenence certification that would provide the foundation for you to build upon.

    Hi bobmalooga, welcome to CF. What aspect of IT are you interested in getting into? It's a big field with a lot of opportunities. A lot of people start by going down the A+ route which will more often than not lead to a support role. It could be a very useful grounding for other career paths though, especially if you have limited experience to start with.

    thanks for the welcome and the advice everyone.

    i have been in contact with computeach and their rep advised me to do their CompTIA A+/MCSA/MCSE course. i was wondering if anyone can recommend this course that has actually completed it through computeach or can anyone recommend another training company to do this course through? their rep painted a very glossy picture of how good it is to study through them and i would like some advice from someone not employed by computeach.

    thanks again for the warm welcome

    To be fair, rwa, as always its only the unhappy ones that post, not the satisfied people. Other's have posted in support of Computeach on here in the past.

    ok maybe I'm a little harsh, but I don't want to see other people have the same experience.

    As with everything, you get out of it what you put into it. Who can really say they passed their MCSE with a training provider only with the material supplied? As with any sort of studying you need information from many different sources.
