An additional resource for online training

TechRepublic reader recommends a resource where you and your clients can get computer training and certification testing online.


Last week, I told you about Train-Online.com, a Web site recommended by one of your fellow TechRepublic passport owners, Patrick K. (you can read the article here ). I asked you to recommend your favorite training sites, and WEdwards was quick to jump in.

Brainbench tests your mettle
WEdwards recommended several sources of training on the Web. One site, Brainbench.com , bills itself as “the skills authority.” For employers, Brainbench offers an applicant database and testing services for job seekers. For individuals, the site offers online certification exams and prep courses in over 50 specialties. By registering, you can take many of the exams for free and build an online profile with your results.

One cool thing about this site is that it lets you know how you rank compared to other test-takers. You can view results that rank everyone who’s taken a particular test by city, state, or country.
If you’ve tried the services available at Brainbench (or if you’d like to recommend another quality Web site), we want to hear from you. Please post a comment below or send us a note .
