    ICT technician Wireless training course in the West Midlands

    Came across this and already booked my place, but thought that it may be of interest to others in our area.

    In partnership with the West Midlands Mobile and Wireless research project at Coventry University, Daconi are able to provide wireless training for school ICT technicians for only 245* per delegate. The one day course is equivalent to NVQ Level 3 and will run on Wednesday 8th April 2009 and the 11th March 2009.
    Not bad considering it's equivalent to NVQ Level 3 and the program was developed with a University

    It took them 2 weeks to confirm my place, so you may have a while to wait...

    Did the course yesterday, all I can say is that is was very, very good. I learnt quite a few things and would recommend this to anyone. The course is rated level 3 of the NQF by Conventry University.

    The only down side that I can think of is that none of the software tools would work on my laptop (Vista 64-bit), if you do go on this course take a wireless enabled laptop with the 32-bit version of XP
