    I think Skillstrain, Computeach, and Training Providers in general have been covered to death here at CF.

    Why don't you take a gander at some existing threads?

    Questions to ask BEFORE you sign up

    Have fun reading - I honestly don't think a new thread would cover any new ground. TPs are widely panned on forums, mainly because of the classic addage that angry people are louder than happy ones. People that are happy with their providers are often less vocal about it.

    If you are going to go with a Provider, as opposed to self studying, then I suggest you call the company directly. Ask about the tutors in the area you want to study in. Ask about the material, and ask to see a sample, preferably before a salesman comes to your door. And try not to be lured in by promises of massive wages as soon as you "qualify", and the guarantee of a great job - because by and large, it's not true.

    My mentor (way back when) did his IT courses thru Computeach, which he liked. I would recommend your local college/Uni or self study.

    Arroryn's right when saying "People that are happy with their providers are often less vocal about it."
