    Hey folks, im new to the forums!

    I have the opportunity to do the A+ course at a local college for free as my step mum teaches there. All i would have to pay for is the exam. The course is 3 hours every monday evening for 30 weeks.

    I have just graduated from uni with a 1st class degree in business and computing.


    In the end i really want to get into networks, however i am currently working in a basic development role.

    Is it worth my time doing it as its pretty much free?

    I would say yes. No matter how much you think you know, there is always something more to be learnt - whether it's in the basics or the higher levels.

    That's one of the things I live by.

    Another yes from me. I did the A+ after I finished my MSc and I still picked up a few things. 8)

    no, it's a terrible idea






















    only kiddin, definitly yes, it's for free, and another cert being the A+ would always be a big benifit if you're wanting to get into networks
