    Hi and welcome to CF!

    Just do a search on here for Apprenta and read what you find.

    I'd have to warn that, in general, people will post complaints more readily than compliments, so keep that in mind while you read!

    Harry.

    Welcome to CF!

    Do as Harry says and do a search for them.

    Just one thing to point out when posting on forums though is to try and use 'propper' language in your posts rather than 'txt spk', as it makes it far easier on the eye, and to understand. Not all of us are young and knowledgable in the world of 'txt'! :biggrin

    I thought everone knows about txt langauge due to almost everyone in the world owning a mobile phone? Even in the newspaper there was an article about how lazy the english language has become because people were using the TXT language.

    I own a mobile phone, but rarely send any text messages, and I certainly can't speak 'txt'. I can just about read it, but a posting too full of it is one I tend to give a miss to.

    Harry,

    Before signing up, why don't you do a little soul searching.
    IT is a big place.
    Don't choose a job because it has good money.
    Job satisfaction is also important otherwise if your focus on the pie in the sky dreams then you are setting yourself up to fail.

    What are your skills?

    Are you practical, do you prefer to work with your hands building stuff? PC support A+

    Are you artistic? Maybe web designed would be worth looking at.

    Do you like to help people? Analyse problems, do a little detective work. If so what about MCDST? or

    Maybe Network engineer.

    What ever you decide think before commiting yourself.

    If you can't afford it Self study is the way to go.

    Good Luck

    Monkey :biggrin

    If your phone has fast text. Then you don't have to use TXT langauge. It was invented for those who own a phone who didn't have fast text, before MP3 and camera's. It was quick and easy only problem it became a craze. Even after fast txt was invented people still use it.

    Sorry Monkey, but I'm with Harry here. Just because I work in IT and use lots of TLA dosn't mean I understand txt talk. I guess I'm just one those older people that would much rather read English instead of txt talk. Too much in a post, and I'll give it a miss.

    Got to go with the guys here Monkey, evn tho I cn reed n writ it 2.

    There are millions of people in the world that can't read or write. Of those that can is it too much to expect correct punctuation, grammer and spelling? If people aren't going to take a little time for that then I'm not going to take a little time to respond.

    :soz Ok, getting back on track here, I'm with Harry. Do a search on the forum and also with google. At least do some research into what area of IT you're interested in and also what the different areas of certification are. Then if you do decide to go with them read the contract very carefully and don't sign anything straight away.

    This selection process is nothing more than a ploy to get you signed up. They will give you the impression that you are a special person that has passed their stringent assesment. This will then give you the nice warm glow feeling which will help them to get you to sign the finance agreement. I have yet to hear of a person failing one of these assessments!

    I'm in it for the sexy women, joking before I get lynched :)

    I'm trying to get into IT properly because I enjoy it.
