    I have just joined this forum and need urgent help.

    I had a computeach rep come round to discuss some courses. He has suggested the

    'Designing & Implimenting Microsoft Windows applications - visual basic . NET'

    Which will get me the following qualifications. (MCP) and core or elective credits towards (MCAD), (MCSD) and elective credit towards (MCDBA).

    I haven't a clue what this all means, I just wanted to train as a programmer.

    I only have basic experience on PC's, i.e. normal stuff used for home pleasure etc.

    The course is £4200............. Is this expensive for this course???????

    I would love to get direct replies via email so I can chat some more. (Emaill = [email protected])

    Also once I have passed this course what sort of money does it pay?

    Hi Tony, and welcome. I doubt if anyone will be able to answer all your questions in one quick post, but most of them have already been answered, or opinions offered, in our Training & Development Forum (clickable link). Have a good look around in there first :)

    Greetings, Tony. Welcome to CertForums. I am no expert at programming by any means so I can't help you with that. I did notice that you posted your actual e-mail address. Occasionally, spammers either manually or through automated processes, search sites such as this one for usable e-mail addresses. You don't really need to post yours openly.

    If you enabled it in your profile, any member of CF can either send you a Private Message (PM) or an e-mail using the forum software. If you absolutely must post an e-mail addy openly, try a format like

    fred AT hotmail DOT com.

    That usually is enough to keep the roving spam spiders off your back. Ok...color me paranoid. :oops:

    Hope you enjoy it here. :)

    Hi Tony

    Welcome to this tiny bit if the datasphere.

    I am a student of the Open University and am doing a number of programming courses to make up my degree. Have you considered doing a degree in Computing with them? It will take longer and cost less but you will have a full BSc (Hons) at the end of it. www.open.ac.uk

    Just a thought!

    Hi mate.
    I hope you've misunderstood him, and that he's not really offering you ONE MCP for £4,200. You should be getting the whole MCSD for that price.
    MCAD/MCSD is a tough one, do not take it lightly.
