Just been looking around a few IT Courses online.
I will give a brief background of my current status in IT
I graduated last year with a BSc in Information Systems
I have been working for the last year at an ISP
I have done a support role for about 6 months and then got moved into Service Delivery - Faults (pretty much talking to technicians all day confirming the fixing of fault/testing with on site technicians).
I am at the point where I would like to take the next step up and move into a more IT based role.
I have considered taking the path of perhaps starting with a system admin position or something along the lines of that. From there I may possibly branch off and go in the Network Engineering pathway depending how I find it. I did touch on a bit of Cisco and found it somewhat challenging but interesting.
I did get to the final stage of a graduate systems engineering role at one stage but my knowledge of Active Directory let me down.
As a result I would like to get some certifications under my belt then perhaps try for some entry level stuff.
I have narrowed it down to possible courses
I have heard of the CBT Nuggets stuff as I have asked a similar thing in the past, but I do prefer a classroom environment, at least for now.
With going with the AMES course its straight into Microsoft Content and is only 3 months. I am however how well this will help with securing that entry level job. On the positive its under 8k to sit
With Computer Power it is a much longer course and covers a lot more stuff, Cisco, Microsoft, Network+, ....etc. Also more expensive as well. Looking at 24k on costs here.
So my question to you pros out there, if you have in insight on what I should consider I would greatly appreciate it.
