  2. hi Guys and Girls Quick bit about myself used to work in IT 7 years ago former MCSE in NT, 98, but been out of IT now for a while so way behind the times, Been looking into getting back into IT with something a bit more fun and creative so Web design really sparks a interest for me. now i have been looking at college courses at my local tech college and it offers evening course with a city and guilds diploma which to me sounds very rubbish not going to get company's kicking your door down with jobs. i have been talking to national IT learning centre about their courses which are Adobe based. now this sounds much more up the street i was looking for ACE certification Cr4, with dreamweaver a product i have heard of for many years. now the Nation IT learning centre course is a home based study with the exams at the end when u are ready, they offer some instructor based training if you get stuck and 24 hour phone support. at a cost of £4500 roughly Looking at Adobe's website they seem to have there own home based learning disk's 35 pounds per program or 200 for a web designer cs4 complete tutorials and there exams are about 130€ So my questions 1. has anyone else ever taken one of there courses? 2. has anyone used the Adobe tutorial disks ? 3. do you think just maybe getting some books maybe starting with Html and working my way through css php dreamweaver fireworks etc etc is a better way to learn. thanks in advance for all help loy
