    I can hook OT members up with a discount on certification training, I work for a company called Techskills ( http://www.techskills.com ) - if we have a location in your area, and you want to get certified, PM me and let me know. I'm in admissions, so I can work a bit with the price for certification courses. The courses range all the way from A+ and Cisco, all the way to MCSD.net, Oracle 9i and SCJP.

    I'll list some exam fees when I get into work tomorrow. Keep in mind, exam fees are set by the testing body, Techskills doesn't mark them up or anything, so I can't give discounts on those. The only way someone gets a (very small) discount on testing fees is if they buy a 4, 7, or 12 test voucher bundle.


    As far as for individual courses, the normal price for most complete single courses is $1595 (keep in mind, that's ONE course - most certifications require 2 courses or more) - with something like that, I couldn't discount either.

    Really the only thing that I could hook OT members up on is called an IT membership, which is 12 months of unlimited training (and all textbooks), students can take as many certification courses as they want and get textbooks for each course, for 12 months - the normal price for that is $6995, I could probably knock 2 grand off that for OT members, but don't jerk my chain, either. If you're serious about it, then PM me and we'll go from there.

    I know that's probably not what you guys wanted to hear, but I can only do what I can do :)

    That's what I did at a school near me. Did it for 9 months, then the school filed bankruptcy and I got fucked and can't finish my classes.. :wtc:

    Are you in Tampa area so I can finish my tests?

    We are VUE. You'll need to call the Office Coordinator and schedule a test. The number for Techskills in Tampa is 813.491.1000.
