    Hello, my name's Ben, I'm 25 and hoping to get into an IT job. My only issue is how! I'm probably like anyone who wants to get into IT, been building/maintaining/networking home computers since I was about 12, enjoy it very much and have plenty of basic knowledge but no work experience or certification so, having packed my £18000 a year job with HMV in January and travelling around NZ and Australia for 4 months, I come to you for advice!

    My options:

    1) Find any old job and go to my local college in september to do a year long Comptia A+ and MCDST courses simultaniously at a cost of £400 and £150, respectively.

    2) Find a local training centre and do those courses at a cost of £800 and £1000 respectively over 2 weeks and then Temp in an office until I can get into a helpdesk job.

    3) Temp until an entry level job with training turns up (unlikely I'm sure)

    Any ideas/experiences would be helpful and if anyone has any experience of any merseyside training centres like "Connect Training" etc, that would be great too!
