Sorry to drag up an old post but I've only just seen this thread!
I'm currently with NITLC doing their Technical & Service Engineer (TSE) course. I've found them very good (so far!) with the materials being sent to me very quickly.
I will admit that before I signed up there was a few teething problems (they used to have a regional person come and speak to you about the courses but I had a few problems with the one who visited me) but they sorted themselves out very quickly (and even got a reduction on modules that I didnt need!)
They have recently changed their courses so the TSE course is no longer available although there is an alternative one. The TSE course I'm on now covers CompTia A+, CompTia Network+, MCSA, MCSE and CCNA.
If you want to know any more or have any questions, feel free to PM me for a chat.

I did the A+ at NITLC and I would not recommend them to a friend. I really do regret enrolling for a few reasons. All they were really interested in was getting me enrolled and taking my money. They don't care whether the course is right for you or whether you are capable at all. As someone that comes from a limited IT background I should have asked more questions but they just kept discussing with me the payment options and how I was going to pay for the course. Less than a quarter of the time was spent actually discussing the contents of the courses, career progression and studying methods. I would have also benefited from an induction instead of just being left to my own devices. I know they are distance learning courses but they should make sure you are on the right track. I suffer from dsylexia and I tried to have extra time awarded but NITLC did nothing to help me have this time given. They do not even have anyone that specialises in special needs / special requirements for the exams. There are people out there that are in wheelchairs or have learning difficulties and NITLC do nothing to accomodate them.
Facebook and Youtube are good places to start for your research prior to enrolling. My username is guitar999able if you want to see videos about A+ / Mike Meyers / Computeach / NITLC (Some of the best videos are on my favourites)
Good luck with it all and remember because we are in a recession everyone is ripping each other off!!!!
