    Hi Their cgsalt

    Ive been with NITLC for 1yr now doing my mcse course, ive never had any problems and after just 5 months i was working as a it desktop support assistant, ive so far done A+ N+ and am currently doing my first MCP, their really good and the student website is great for chatting to other members, you also get to go on workshops in Newark at the A+ N+ stages which really help with the exams

    If you have any other questions just pm me

    Hope this is of some use

    Hi there, hard to say, it depends on what method of learning you prefer. I cant learn from books and find cd roms better. Also I was told that there courses look really good as in value for money, but there impossible to complete. I asked that question about there TSE course from the advice of a learning provider and they never got back to me with an answer. I have ben looking for a training company now for ages, but have my doubts about them all so far.

    erm...to be fair mate this is the first time he's mentioned the company, hardly the m.o of a spammer if that's what you're implying and if not, im sorry.

    Agreed, moominboy. Let's all try to get along and think the best of each other until we are actually given a reason to do otherwise. :)

    Yes soz about that, should have kept my thoughts to myself really unless i was absolutely sure.

    I have posted this before under the Computeach heading, but always check training providers cancellation periods, make sure its 14 days and not 7, it will give you a chance to try before you buy really. Thats what I am now thinking of doing, I will keep you posted.

    cheers

    Hey , iank, tone down the cynicism a bit or you'll go through life not even trusting your own mother :wink:!

    For my part, cgsalt, I've been with NITLC for about three months and ploughing through the A+. I thought the first module of course materials, although not leading to anything recognised, are well layed out and ideal for noobs. The A+ material is the Mike Meyers book and CDROM (with practice exams on) which pretty much everyone here agrees is the best A+ book around.

    Course materials are delivered promptly, they have a great website and easy to use online assessments (no waiting for the post) and, although I've only contacted the tutors twice (once by email and once on the phone, and neither time was it about course material directly) they're very helpful and quick to reply.

    On the downside, it's a lot of dollar so you'd better be sure that's what you want to do, and as iank pointed out, you really have to slog to do the full course in two years. Although, I've been told by the tutors that they will grant free extenions in many circumstances - I suppose if they feel you've put enough work in. If not they'll charge you for it.

    Whatever you decide, good luck and the bods here are really helpful if you ever need any advice.

    Baba.
