    So I checked this place out. For 22k you get 9 certs over a 10 month period. It comes with 4 Microsoft MTA's (don't remember the ones), A+, Network+, Server+, Linux essentials and Windows 10 MCP. When you complete those 9 you can pay 11k and get your Security+, Ethical hacker and CCNA. There was another level byond that that got you an MCSA Server 2016 for another 11k, but I had stopped paying attention by that time. Might be good for someone completely new to IT, but I think its a waist. Better to go to WGU and bust that out over 2 years. Better certs and a degree. If you just want a few certs, pick the ones you want and save a ton with self study.

    Just thought I would follow up with this incase anyone considered them in the future.

    9 certs in 10 months . . . that's not learning, that's cramming and brain dumping.

    I actually went there to help me get my start in IT. The Army paid for it. At the time, it was really good for me. It gave me the structure and things of that nature and helped me get back study habits and stuff like that. They also helped me land a job. Since then I'm fine with doing everything self study but back then, it definitely helped give me the foundation.

    You think it might be good for someone completely new to IT to sacrifice 11-22k for entry level certifications? icon_lol.gif..Interesting. That is a waist icon_rolleyes.gif
