    Hello folks,

    I found you while googling for 'UK IT Training' and it was a thread on this forum that convinced me they are a bunch of sharks. Thankyou so much good people !

    My situation is I worked in a support / network admin role some years ago, but got bored and left to study Buddhism, Chinese and Tibetan at university.

    So now here I am a few years later, engaged to be married and wanting to start a family and looking to get back into the IT game and earn some money. The Buddhist studies was fascinating, but unlikely to lead to a job.

    I now need to re-train and get my skills up to speed. I have been building some web sites and learning XHTML, CSS and PHP. If you are interested, you can check out some examples of what I have been doing below:

    www.denyi.org
    www.aspexpress.org
    chinese.denyi.org
    review.deny.org

    Anyone have any ideas how I can move forward?

    thanks again for the wake up call !

    dan :-)

    Thank God for online translators! I studied using jiantizi and Pinyin, and I'm very rusty as I've not had much opportunity to practice.

    我學習了一年- 六個小時每天, 五天每星期, 四十七個星期。

    我的中國名字是 敖 邁 克。

    Hello and Welcome to CF:biggrin

    From what you said about yourself I guess starting at the bottom with Comptia A+ is out of the question?

    Have a look on the forum under CIW,

    there's a thread pinned by Zimbo which show which course of action to take for CIW Certification Pathways & Exams

    Click here to see thread

    Good luck8)
