    Hi all,

    I am planning to do MCDT or CompTIA N+ and am currently looking for an instructor led training provider. I know that IT gurus here would advise to go for self study but I dont have that much time. Apart that, I dont mind being a "paper certified".

    So does anybody know any reasonable company in the east midlands, particularly in Nottingham. I came across Cybacoach http://cybacoach.com/index.htm which looks quite good. Any good or bad experience with them ?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    eeerrrr if you want to do a subject quickly then you would be better self studying as with a course you are restricted to a time limit.

    Also what is MCDT? do you mean MCDST? I would do the A+ and N+ before the MCDST.

    Hi and welcome to CF!

    Why does the time matter? Are you in a job where the boss insists on your getting some certs before a deadline?

    If you want to get the certs really fast then look for a boot-camp, but for those you should be fairly familiar with the material already!
    And they cost quite a bit.

    Hi there

    I'm with Nitlc who are based in the east midlands.

    Saying that, they are not bootcapms or self studying....They are distance learning, with hands on workshops.

    I would recommend contacting your local college to see if they do MS & Comptia courses. The local college is normally cheaper than alot of the private training companies.

    yep if you really want a course do what Ken said, you never hear of colleges ripping people off.

    Thanks guys for your input.

    hbroomhall, I am currently working but going to be redundant from next month. My employer has a retraining budget as part of redundancy package. I think I have a couple of months before I find a new job. So I want to use this time to gain a certification with the help of an intensive class room course as it would be difficult for me to study once on a full time job. Not bad if after a quick certification I find a quick entry level job.

    wegnerk, local college is surely cheaper but takes a year to finish which doesnt suite me.
