    Hey Guys and Girls.

    Im 22 yrs old.

    Last year i was working as a desktop support techn. This year i'm a database administrator/cleark/cleanser as a contractor. I have tried for the last 3 years for a perm job!

    I want to do my MYSQL training and i'm not the home learning type. I learn better with a teacher/pract learning, plus you get the extra off the book training.

    This is the link i was looking at...

    http://www.stayahead.com/training-c...rses/Introduction-to-MySQL-Outline--MYSI.html

    Now do i spend tons of cash on these courses, step by step? I don't want to find out that i don't have enough experience after the courses when applying for a job and plus this costs so much!

    Also is this the correct route of course?

    Not sure where to start really...

    Any help would be good

    Thanks

    For just over £895, as quoted on their website for 3 days, you could do the first year of a HNC. Which can include a module on DB's and it would contribute to a degree. That's my opinion on the price.

    I take it that you want to become a DBA, instead of tech support? If that's the case, that is one route.

    My advice is to contact your local college/Uni and see what courses they do first of all. You may find a better/cheaper course more suited to you. If not, this company will still be there for your training.
