    Thanks for the welcome!

    Right, well, I'm 22, live in Wolverhampton and I'm just fed up of my job - I work in a mobile phone shop, which pays very slightly above minimum wage and I'm just after a change. After much umming and aahing I've decided to look into doing something with computers. I don't have any formal I.T qualifications (I left school after my GCSEs, then pissed about in college rather than actually working) so I've decided to look into getting some certifications to kind of 'get my foot in the door'.

    I've started off by ringing Computeach and they've sent all the gumph through, DVD and whatnot, and are sending a feller round to see me on Tuesday, but i've done some checking on t'interweb and read some less than favourable reviews, and you guys seem like a helpful bunch so i was hoping you could point me in the right direction for some useful courses to try - I'm hoping to do something either on the hardware side of things, or creative - design, programming, something like that.

    That's about it, really - I'd welcome any suggestions you have.

    Cheers!

    Howdy back Neil :). I'm kinda uncool with computeach, I got the inpression that the sale was greater than the product.

    I tend to take a slighty aggressive approach to slightly aggresive salesmen :eek:

    Fact is, I don't like people using the fact that, they are guests in my home as some kind of leverage against me.

    IMHO, computeach are pushy, expensive, & care not a whit beyond getting the sale.

    Greetings Neil :biggrin.

    Have you considered self study?Lots of people on here are taking that route.Will be cheaper in the long run for yourself.Give it some serious thought before parting with your hard earned money,Computeach and alike are not cheap.

    As is suggested to nearly all newcomers looking to gain certs,why dont you start with the A+ .
    Take a look around our A+ forum,you will find lots of useful info.
    Its an entry level cert that will give you the ideal stepping stone to bigger and better things.

    Best of luck :D
