    Greetings! I don't know much about the CIW or the different training providers, so I'm not even going to try! Someone will be along shortly to help though I'm sure.

    Have you not considered self study, could save you an absolute fortune.

    :biggrin

    The best advice I can give is to read many of the different posts on this web forum, there is lots of information. :rolleyes:

    Do a Google search, try using a wildcard word like 'scam' or 'con' after your search entry, you might get some interesting results.

    Personally, I use Skills-Train, because I like milestones, although self study for the most part, it does make me set a target to read a chapter, weekly or bi-weekly. Yes it's far more costly than buying some books and doing it yourself, but that's just me.

    Look at the profile of the members on this forum (top right) there are some real geeks (I want to aspire too) here. :D

    Like lots of posts on questions and answers, the best advice is to start small, try the A+ certification first, it gives you a grounding from which to leap tall building in a single bound...... :biggrin

    Hi.

    Shop around. Do your homework on places like this. If you fancy a training provider, apply to more than one. Try and focus on facts, what they do and don't give you. If any of it isn't in writing in the brochure etc, ask for clarification.

    Good luck!
