    Hey Guys,

    I am starting a home based MCSE course with "IT Skills Group" http://www.itskillsgroup.com/ and I was just woundering if any of you guys had done a course with them, or had any friends do a course with them? Was it good or bad?

    Thanks

    I did a CIW with them a few years ago.
    I didn't have any problems, everything went as it should...

    My brother completed a CIW course with them a few years back after leaving Uni. He never said anything bad about them...

    Thanks for the answers guys, well I started last friday. They've sent the ECDL course material out so it looks like im doing this qualification before the MCSE. This ECDL looks very simple as ive done most of the topics in college. Any of you guys have this qual?

    Thanks

    No.
    I had quite a bit of IT experience so I skipped the foundation part of the course.

    Well my tutor from IT SKILLS came round last night and told me that the ECDL cd was just to work through to get the basics down before i started the MCSE, so theres no exam for me to take. However I did basically all the modules while I was in college. Then he mentioned to give him a call when I had worked thought the modules and had done well on the practice exams so he could send me the 70-270 course material. I'm not far off finishing it so I can get stuck into the Windows XP exam.

    Hey I've just seen an ad for this company, does anyone have any further feedback on them? They seem to do a number of MS qualifications although the web site looks a little amateurish for an IT training company :|

    I'd be grateful for any info/opinions on these and indeed any other training providers.
