    Just watching the baseball on channel 5 and saw the advert saying 'the average salary in IT is £37,000'.

    ...neglecting to mention that includes IT directors, senior analysts & contractors who have about ten years' experience...

    Seriously, cert schools make me sick - surely people are wising up to the fact that the ol' 'Give-us-six-grand-and-in-four-weeks-we'll-turn-you-into-a-bona-fide-tech-genius-commanding-a-forty-grand-a-year-salary'
    bullshit is starting to wear a bit thin with employers?

    LOL you would think so, wouldn't you :rolleyes:

    I don't get a chance to see those ads which I know are being broadcast on UK TV. But, I do know that there are many training providers 'up over' that are trying to attract the unwary, with pie in the sky promises and little in the way of backing those promises up with real life examples.

    It's one of the reasons I enjoy posting here, to try and get people to wise up, open their eyes and see them for what they are. Mostly money making scams :eek:

    I am sure that if you take the time to read some of the numerous pasts threads on this subject, you will see a common trend :wink:
