IT training

By fbech73827 ·
Is getting your certificates in a six month training school a good idea. I am 40 and don't have a lot of time. Will company's hire you with these certificates. Or should I go the long route....College. Is the 25k tuition for the six month class worth it.

Thank you

I wouldn't hold my breath. Experienced Tech's with plenty of certificates and degrees are being laid off all around the country/world.

Is 25k tuition for a six-month class worth it? Well, that depends on what you KNOW you're going to get when you get out! If you've got a job waiting for you after school, then go for it. Otherwise, roll the dice like the rest of us.

"don't have alot of time"

by Dr Dij In reply to IT training

I don't think you should be in IT.

You'll spend endless time you don't appear to have constantly learning.

Anything worthwhile takes time.
IT training doesn't cost 25k. It would take ALOT of time tho.

E.g. you could join ACM or IEEE and get enuf courses to train for several years basically free.
