Selecting Networking Training - Update

If it weren't for a continuous flood of well educated network and computer support staff, commercial enterprise in the United Kingdom (as elsewhere) could well be brought to its knees. Consequently, there's an ever growing requirement for men and women with technical ability to support both the users themselves and their networks. Whereupon we're all becoming massively more beholden to our PC's, we also find ourselves increasingly more reliant upon the commercially qualified IT professionals, who ensure the systems function properly.

Review the facts below and pay great regard to them if you've been persuaded that that old marketing ploy of an 'Exam Guarantee' sounds great value:

Obviously it isn't free - you're still paying for it - the price has simply been included in the whole thing. If you want to get a first time pass, you must pay for each exam as you go, prioritise it appropriately and give the task sufficient application.

Doesn't it make more sense to not pay up-front, but when you're ready, instead of paying a premium to a college, and to take it closer to home - instead of the remote centre that's convenient only to the trainer? Including money in your training package for examinations (and interest charges if you're borrowing money) is madness. It's not your job to boost the training company's account with your money only to please their Bank Manager! There are those who hope that you won't get to do them all - so they get to keep the extra funds. Re-takes of any failed exams through training companies with an 'Exam Guarantee' are monitored with tight restrictions. You'll be required to sit pre-tests till you've proven conclusively that you can pass.

Paying maybe a thousand pounds extra on an 'Exam Guarantee' is naive - when a commitment to studying and the use of authorised exam preparation tools is what will really see you through.

Be watchful that any certifications that you're considering will be commercially viable and are bang up to date. The 'in-house' certifications provided by many companies are not normally useful in gaining employment. Unless your qualification is issued by a company like Microsoft, CompTIA, Adobe or Cisco, then you may discover it could have been a waste of time and effort - as no-one will have heard of it.

An advisor that doesn't ask you a lot of questions - it's likely they're just trying to sell you something. If they wade straight in with a specific product before understanding your background and experience, then it's very likely to be the case. Often, the training start-point for a trainee with some experience can be massively different to the student with none. It's usual to start with some basic user skills first. This can set the scene for your on-going studies and make the slope up to the higher-levels a much easier going.

What is the reason why qualifications from colleges and universities are being replaced by more commercial certificates? With university education costs climbing ever higher, together with the industry's recognition that accreditation-based training most often has much more commercial relevance, there's been a great increase in CISCO, Adobe, Microsoft and CompTIA certified training paths that create knowledgeable employees for considerably less. Vendor training works through focusing on the skills that are really needed (alongside an appropriate level of background knowledge,) as opposed to spending months and years on the background detail and 'fluff' that degree courses can get bogged down in (because the syllabus is so wide).

It's a bit like the TV advert: 'It does what it says on the tin'. Companies need only to know what they're looking for, and then request applicants with the correct exam numbers. Then they're assured that a potential employee can do exactly what's required.
