    Hi and welcome to CF!

    In my experience no employer is interested in certs for graphic design. What they *do* want to see is a portfolio. So if you have done a pile of work then show it to prospective employers. It will do you far more good than a cert from a college that nobody has heard of!

    Keep in mind that everything you post on the web is visible to potential employers, particularly with regards to Web design... I'd recommend using proper punctuation, capitalization, and spelling. Just sayin'. :)

    This college is the worse college i have attended. I enrolled on the A+, MCSE and CCNA course at the cost of approx £2000. At my initial contact with the college - the course advisor advised me that the course is not a fast track course - and is attended for people who have little or no experience with computers. i still quote "everything will be explained and showed this course is attended for people like you". At my first day of college 2 people walked out of the course with the poorly organised structure to the course and with the tutor who could barely speak english - even when we could understand him - it was just him reading through the text book - no practical lessons were shown and a cost of nearly £600 per course thats at least they could have down. Even some of there equipment wasn't working. I tried to get a refund on the other 2 courses i signed up for but advise me that the agreement that i signed does not allow the college to do this - Bloody thiefs i say!!!. So to be quite frank do not enroll in this college just buy the books and read it at home - because you will get no help from the tutors on this course..

    That's bad. Especially bad considering your English isn't that great either.
