Cheap training/cert. alternatives?

By privately_owed ·
Is $1000 or more too much to pay to get training and a basic vendor certification? What cheaper alternatives are there for classroom training, or even for the certifications themselves? Anyone have any ideas or input on how to cut some cost out of getting certified?

Quite expensive

by abbyzi In reply to Cheap training/cert. alte ...

1,000 US Dollars is equivalent to 78,000 Kenya Shillings. It is very hard to raise this amount in most third world countries. It is also pretty difficult for most to carry out online transactions since they don't have international credit cards.
The only cheaper alternatives I know of include free online Techrepublic tips, online certifications like brainbuzz and, at one time brainbench.
Got any more sites?

ON Line Training

Could any one give her/his experience on SmartForce.com that is used by a number of corporations to train their IT people online?
Is it really good and cost-effective or there is some other better and cheaper source material?
I am looking at it from MCSD perspective - the certificaation I wish to acquire.
