    I'm glad to have found this site as it has help me find some sanity amongst the crazy world of certification and training providers.

    Firstly, I'd like to say that I've pretty much taught myself everything through hard graft. But now things have changed as I have two kids who require my love and attention (rightly so). Therefore, I find it hard to sit down and hack code and learn new technologies.

    Hence, why I joined this forum. I must say thank you to all those CertForum members' advice and wisdom that I read before I blew almost £7k on MCAD and MCSD with MS Student Campus and then about-turned and ran a mile.

    Anyway, now that I have very little time I'd like to become a MCAD and MCSD (for starters) via a reputable training provider. I don't mind doing it the hard way (i.e. self-study over a period of time). I just feel that with time at a premium being around good trainer will help learn a little quicker.

    So, I live in North London and would like to find a good training centre which provides good trainers and will help structure my precious amount of short time. Any advice will be welcome. Please feel free to email me.

    Thank you all.

    Hi and welcome to CF!

    Can't help on the training, as all my certs were self-study.

    Hi Harry,
    I'm sort of feeling that's the way to do it . . . just thought I'd check out my options.
