    Hello everyone,

    (this is me :))

    I live near Gatwick Airpoort, West Sussex and I've been finding it hard to find training providers for the MCSE in my area that are not boot camps or self study. Is there a good online resource or agency you guys can recommend that i can phone to find part time classroom courses in my area? (beit evening/weekends or 1 day midweek courses)

    I've contacted my local college, and education centres but they have not been able to help and online searching have all turned out to be intesive two week courses, or distance learning. I need part time as i need to remain employed full-time (my employer is also paying for the training), and self study is not the correct environment for me.

    I would relish any advise you could pass on! :unsure

    Have you contacted your local 6th form college? I have a ex co-worker who is now teaching A+ Microsoft and CISCO at a 6th form college in Cornwall. It maybe an opening. I'll drop him an e-mail and see if he knows of other places.

    That would be great thank you Sandy!!! I phoned the local 6th form schools but have had no luck as yet.

    An ironic stoke of luck has happened though, i took a call at work from someone asking if we had any IT training needs so i jumped on the chance to quiz him. Turns out he was from Interquad but may be able to help me at least push the proposal passed my manager as they offer courses to fit in with working schedules and the corporate rate was good. The nearest centre is in Reading which is about 1.5 hours drive for me but do-able for 2-5 day courses spread over a year or so. They'll do my A+, N+ and MCSE 2003 as one discounted package so i'll use them as a basis for costing purposes for the meantime and keep looking around for something a bit closer.
