I don't know about the Fees. I think they might be refereing to the Examaing body's and that is if applicable. I can only confirm this on Mon as the office is closed on weekends. But as the deal closes tonight I have bought this deal. If they charge a booking fee I will let you know.

Yes you won't get a guranteed job but it helps to get some skills, I work in IT and I am still booking it because deal is so good.
You will not earn £35k starifgr away but after experience gained it can top that.

Hope this helps.

n. Exam booking and fees not included.

Presumably cold from people who have no idea what this is. Good deal to me - I'm studying for an MCTS just now through work, if this were available on Monday when I'm back in work I'd recommend my bus pays for it. Classroom courses for this sort of thing are £1500+ for a week.
Any employer who puts any stock in MS accreditations is not worth working for IMHO.. I get guys who have done the MCP and have to retrain them from scratch, the MS way is rarely the RIGHT way

Quite correct...

In the real Corporate IT world no decent employers gives a toss about MS qualifications...

Ok if you want to get a foot on the ladder but that's about it.

Your correct. They helped me to get my first IT job. I got a MCP in Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 which I got in 2005. After that its what "work experience" you got.

What would be the right course/qualifications to get into IT then?
I love when people think if they sit a course and get a qualifacation then they will get a job , if only that easy. and what do you mean by IT ( there are literally hundreds of different types of IT jobs ). How many companies use microsoft , this is like sitting the old ECDL course which i sat 12 years ago, wasnt worth the paper it was printed on, however 12 years on and i have 2 computer businesses lol.

Yes you study at home and take the exam, exam sites are available on the two of the examining body in the post.

I don't know why people did not understand that no course gurantees a job not even a degree in IT, but it shows some competentancy, These professional courses are good, and the deal it self is afforadable, even if you do not want to work in IT, any one with a computer with Windows 7 will benefit them by not calling for support and pay them extortion amount to tell you to re boot the computer.

Hmmm if they aren't needed then why do companies ask for them. As someone currently looking for a new job I wish I had more IT qualifications than I currently have.

These are good qualifications to have but not solely on their own. You need experience to back it up or else yep you will be only able to earn 16k a year.


I have 10years experience and I'm struggling to get a job at the money I want so don't think you will walk into a job after doing a couple of exams.

When I get on my pc I will be looking into these to see if they will help me.

Voted hot.

CompTIA A+ is a far better qualification to have if your looking for a 'first rung' IT support job.

While a full MSCE is still useful many employers will look an A+ qualification far kinder than an odd MCP. Especially for Field service or 1st line support roles.

certification.comptia.org/get…spx

Even then these jobs can now be hard to find as a lot have now been best shored overseas. Many find it's hard to get started in IT now without being on a Corporate graduate programme

Additionally MS qualifications only last for so long....I spent quite some time studying for an MSCE.....It's now long since expired and I've never bothered renewing it as even my Employer HP doesn't really care about MS certification.

ROFL, you think an employer would look for an A+ over a MCP? I suggest you look on CW Jobs or similar to see what they are actually looking for.

You will see that most ask for a MS cert and i have yet to see one that has asked for A+ which quite frankly a blind dog could complete.
Hubby paid £2000 for an MCSE course + exams 12 years ago & it was an opening to lots of IT contract jobs. Yes the qualifications do expire, but once you have your foot in the door, then you can go a very long way with it.

For field service work yes.

An MCP in Win7 means you know how to click a few buttons...

An A+ at least tells an Employer you have a bit of knowledge of the history of PC architecture and how one hangs together...

Dell, HP and IBM all require A+ as a minimum for Field Service jobs and also as a pre-req for their own hardware certification that enables corps' own IT staff to carry out warranty repairs to kit.
