    Hi guys,
    Can someone pls advice me on the ff:
    1) I was meant to start a course with Joskos but was told i'd rather opt for A+ and N+ by self study instead of spendind loads of thousands of pounds on some unrealistic course.
    2) If i get to become certified in A+ and N+ respectively.What is the best way to get work experience either paid or unpaid,and which sites or recruiters are my to contact m8.?
    Lest, i forget am almost done with my degree in computer sc.,abroad though(Nigeria) and i did oracle9i DBA training at one of the oracle university partners in Nigeria.Am good at oracle SQL but hope to take MS SQL 2005 since they are similar and most recruiters do require it.
    Waiting for a favourable reply ASAP m8s.

    Hi and welcome to CF!

    Why not do the rounds of local PC repairers/builders and chat to them?

    If you are really willing to work unpaid they would be mad not to take up your offer - even if you found you were making the tea for the first week or so!

    Hi,

    Welcome aboard. I agree with what Harry said; go to your local PC shop. Some of them also support local businesses etc...

    be careful. read the fine print meticulously. although they won't admit it, it's virtually impossible for these training companies to guarantee a job after you finished your training, so they usually have a set of rules and regulations that allows them to bail out of their "guarantee".
