    Hello

    I had an interview yeasterday for a junior system administartor vacancy. The interviewer told me that the minimum requirment for me to work for them is an MCC.

    Could anyone tell me what does this course involve and how much it would cost? Is it part-time etc.

    If I understood it correctly, the interviewer told me that they will be able to teach me to get that qulification if I actually come up with a 1000 pounds. But I'm not sure if I would be working for them at the same time or not. The company that I had the interview with are the James Thornton Group. So basicly I went out of the interview without understanding what their actual plan for me would be!:oops: (I didn't ask them to clarify because I knew i wouldn't be able to get that £1000. but things have kinda changed since yeasterday)
    I'm kinda in a situation here. They will phone me up tomorrow and tell me if they are able to take me on or not.(Providing i can come up with the 1k)

    Is anyone here experienced enough to have an idea what they mean?

    Thanks.

    Could they have meant an MCP? Microsoft Certified Professional.

    This sounds a little odd. James Thornton are a well known (but not always highly regarded) training company.

    I hunted around when i was after IT qualifications and found it cheaper to go through local colleges.
    I was able to do Cisco IT Essentials 1 plus both A+ exams for under £300.
    It's case of looking on their websites for the info & most can offer fee reduction if you are unemployed or on a low wage.
    A local college to me does MCP and it's no where near £1k, i think it's about £400 including exam fee.

    They are a TP, I guarantee that they will say they can take you on. No, you wouldnt be working for them, they will happily take your money and 'train' you.

    Am I the only one totally shocked by the fact that anyone would be cheeky enough to demand you pay for a course required to do the job? thats utter tosh, its a fraud, move along, there cant be nothing but bad stuff at the end of that tunnel
