    Hello, i have been given an online course via openittraining.com and was just trying to find a little info about the company, iv'e not been able to find much in the way of reviews which seems odd. From the reviews i did find they all seemed to be negative. Does anyone have experience in using this website? Should i complete the course or try to get a refund?

    Thanks.

    You say you were given a course, but mention a refund. How much have you paid for this?

    The fact that they list MCSA:Windows 7 as entry level, and advertise that you get an MCSA in Windows 7 would make me suspicious - MS retired the MCSA in Windows 7 last year

    I didn't pay anything for it, a family member gave it to me as a christmas present. As I haven't done any online courses before I decided to try and do abit of research and from what i read, the company uses "braindumps" and other posts saying to stay clear away from the site, a few from this forum but they were posted a few years back.

    I don't know if a refund could be possible, i've not got round to taking any of the tests as of yet.

    Generally any company that Classifies an MCSA in Server 2012 as an entry level exam, tend to by lying and pull in customers. the fact they also say they'll help you get work afterwards is another red flag.

    If you haven't paid anything, i guess you've got nothing to lose - but don't go for a site that uses braindumps, it defies all logic and devalues accreditations in IT, if you got a job based on braindump training for exams, you'll find yourself in a whole world of pain when it comes to the fact you've hit the wrong button on a server configuration and your new boss wants to know why you didn't know this having passed a server 2012 exam :)

    I'd explore the refund route, and check out some of the other posts on this forum as to the ways others new in the field went - the majority of guys do self study, and it's paid off for many - myself included many years ago.

    I too made the mistake of using OpenITTraining this was ... is... for the CCNA cert.
    The video on the study is actually not bad, to be honest. But as there is not documentation its hard to revisit certain area to refresh your memory. The CCNA labs you have to connect via RDP!!! this is very poor, slow connection (not my side) and having the guide and the lab in a small window is just the worst. You cannot even save the guide and transfer it to your own PC. Allowing you to have the instructions on one screen and the lab itself on another. the support is not great - I could not access the RDP on Friday, nearly a week later still no reply saying they fixed it, or working on it etc... I have the exam next year but because of how they do the training and provide support not sure if I'll be ready for it!! what a waste of money :-(
