    It will be more than you need to pay.

    No idea, but why would you want to payout for a course?

    I self studied the Net+ and saved myself a bundle, im sure you could do the same?

    apparently these training providers are going to get you a job in it once qualified hence the cost of these courses !

    if you live in their correct geographical area then they might be able to get you a job. But I wouldn't bet a days wages on it.

    Its a very bold statement to say they'll get you a job...

    Again though, you can get your own job now, nothings stopping you? You dont need to pay them for the course, or the "job guarantee".

    Having self-studied the Net+ myself, I reckon you'll get far more enjoyment (genuinely) from doing it yourself. I used the Dave Groth 4th Edition Network+ Study Guide, the Mike Meyers Network+ 2nd Edition Passport, the Network Admin Street Smarts (way more than I needed for the exam, but still very useful), and the Network + Fast Pass. Oh, and I set myself (well, to be honest, I already had it) a little network up. Loadsa fun, and pretty cheap.

    You're buying into their promises, eh? :deal

    Do you know how many ways there are out of a job promise guarantee? They could:
    - offer you a job for a salary you are unwilling/unable to take
    - offer you a job in a location you are unwilling/unable to commute to
    - offer you a job working a schedule that you are unwilling/unable to accept (either based on number of hours or time-of-day)
    - offer you a job working under conditions that you are unwilling/unable to accept
    - offer you a job working doing tasks that you are unwilling/unable to accept

    ...but in all cases, they've "fulfilled" their side of the agreement, and they've got your money. Not saying Advent does or does not do any of this... but these are all ways out of a job promise guarantee.

    Be careful. Nobody can guarantee you a job unless they actually have a job themselves that they will offer you.
