    Welcome to Cert Forums. In a nutshell, yes its very expensive and no, its probably not going to be enough on its own to get your foot in the door. Try using the search facilty on here are tons of people have asked the exact same questions as you. Self study is much much cheaper and achieves the same results. Cheers, Jim

    there is no guarantee you will get a job at the end of the training, If this is the reason you are thinking of signing up dont.Most people on this forum including myself would say selftrain save yourself thousands and will have just as much chance of getting a job.

    oh yea welcome to CF.

    Very expensive ;)
    It won't instantly get you a job- but it's not a waste of money either ;)
    Grab yourself some books and start reading- the A+ can only help in your IT career!
