    greetings everyone.

    I'm just starting out doing A+N+and CCNa training through Skillstrain.

    I am a soon to be divorcee and live in the Potteries.
    I'm 30 now and have been in catering and transport since leaving school. I decided that i needed a change of direction and a salary boost as i just about got all i can out of current career. Enjoy computing in general so i decided that career wise i wanted to do it.

    ultimatly at the moment i am working towards a CISCO engineers career.

    Look forward to talking to you all.

    Lol realise i may of given the impression i thought this was a quick fix. It isn't i know that but the starting salaries even with A+ are above what i earn currently by a fair wack and don't involve getting up at 3am or spending the night in a truck cab.

    So thats a bit of a plus for me already. Its going take a lot of hard work i know, already......... Not counting any chickens yet though but ....


    anyways thanks for the welcome.
