  • computer training courses?

    Good afternoon to all;
    i would like some recommendations and help on computer training courses, as some of you may of read before im a web designer as a profession but i want and probably do need to learn more, i have been looking on the net for courses etc. i have found computeach which seems to be good but they seldom take on people between the ages of 16-17 im very nealy 17 and want to find a course that can take me through all the aspects of web designing and administration but i wish to take it from home, the cost is not much of an issue as the company have vowed to foot the bill.
    I dont wish for a course thats going to take me through the ultra basics as i already know these i just want to expand my knowledge for future prospects.

    I have contacted my local college and they dont seem to be able to provide anything suitable to my requirements and after searching through google i have given up on trying to find what i want so here i am asking you guys.
    cheers for any help in advance

      If your work is going to foot the bill, then don't just select an online course, but (ab)use the opportunity from your employer for continuing education:

      Planning on going to college some day? See if you can take online courses at a local Junior College towards a web certificate-- maybe the classes you take can double-count by being applied to an associates degree, or four year degree.

      Can you convince them to pay for your degree in computer science? How about a web design certificate from a business college? Some are online.

      Try to leverage a single class into a certificate, and a certificate into a degree. A great deal when they are paying! Take, take TAKE!

        Community colleges have TONS of computer courses. Where are you in the sticks? Usually they have 2 day weekend classes, and AAS (almost an AS) degree programs for on the cheap.

          If there isn't a local junior college around to provide some Education. (this would be your best bet, I'd imagine). What are 'your requirements' ?? Why doesn't the one you looked into work?
          I'd also just start reading books and try to find an internship/job shadow someplace. If the local college classes work out or not.... Hope you have good reading skills. good luck.

            I dont really live out in the sticks, we have a college and i contacted them via the phone and let them know exactly what i wanted and what time i had to do it etc. then their basic reply was "im sorry we do not have any sort of course at this college that i feel would suit your needs" Its hard trying to do a course that i can't either do from home or online because i work, its an 11 hour day for me so i have such a little amount of spare time. Im looking as going for a Certified Internet Webmaster so i will be able to create interactive flash content, use advanced scripts of HTML write DHTML and learn how to use javascript and other related things.
            The computeach course doesnt seem to be able to go ahead simply because im too young, i have just turned 17 which seems to be a little on the young side for joining the course. I had a nice phone call with a guy who works their then it got to my age part and he said he doesnt think it could happen, when i asked why is that the rule and he replied to me that he really does not know. Just seems to be a "tradition" sort of thing that they dont take on people that young.
            Ive got some books to help with dreamweaver mx, photoshop cs and flash mx but even if i learn all this it still doesnt get me a certificate at the end of it to prove i know anymore then i do now.

            What would be really helpful to me is if some of you have taken these courses or something like them and could give me the link to the information i need also to let me know what your thoughts of the course were like.

                    I am currently enrolled in Cisco/Webdesign class, and after I get my CCNA certification and my Journeyman Electrician's license, I will go to ITT Tech.

                    I believe Cisco is a very good program, but I don't think they will offer Webdesign
                    class next year. Their contract with Adobe ends this year.

                        Yes, overall the cisco classes are good, I did them myself. But be sure to bring an open mind, and that cisco classes teach you cisco equipment.' Its a big ole network out there'
                        Pickup some other network books and read them along with your cisco materal for a complete education. The problem with the CCNA is that there's a lot of people out there with CCNA's that don't know jack shit, to renew it every 3 years is good, but unless your working with it, or have an amazing memory, its tought to pass after 3 years of not practicing.
                        Good luck though, you'll learn a lot about networking and fundamentals of OSI layer stuff. I got a lot out of my classes.

                            well theres a great deal of you that have posted replies that have been very helpful to me

                            Please excuse my sarcasm!

                            As with any forum i figured the general flow of motion was you ask people for advice on things, talk on topics of the same interest and LEARN

                            thanks to the very small amount of people who took the time to be serious and werent just trying to be pissy.

                            I no longer want to be a member of this forum so please remove my account as there seems to be too many people on this forum unwilling to help people and just get a kick out of posting a stupid comment.

                            Great impression you have given somebody who has only been a member for such a short time!

                              You confuse "pissy" with something else. Some people here are professionals in the real world, and use these forums to help plan for DefCon, or relax a bit. Any help provided is a donation of their time.

                              After being here a while, I've noticed that this can be a form of entertainment as much as a forum of information and planning for DefCon. It can also be an another channel for people to socialize between cons.

                              If you expect people to donate their time to you, being reactionary, judgemental, and closed to items not on your agenda are not best practices to do it.
