Hi guys and girls,
After my rather unsuccessful attempt at a career change, i was wondering what training is out there. I am currently employed as a junior tech or as my senior tech likes to call me "The Toner Monkey". What training should i be looking for. I do like to dabble in web design and coding.

I am in similar position to you. I am desktop a technician (Toners, is it switched on etc). One thing that bugs me is my my Line manager may be talking to other people and he says "Why have a dog and bark yourself". Will your manager not let you attempt the website/ VLE maintenance and backup.
I am currently trying towards COMPTIA Network+ to get onto the Microsoft Route, MCP etc. I am doing it part time at home through the Home learning college.
How long have your been in your post?
Sorry I could not be any more help

I have been in my post for just over 6 months but had been working for the school before. I am currently working on a new site design, I'm working along side another tech who isn't doing much but he is doing all the important stuff. I'm looking at doing a+ / n+ and the mcitp. How you finding the n+.

I did a web development course in my local college I would start there, possibly a part-time course?
In the meantime there is a brilliant website:
W3Schools Online Web Tutorials
Which have step by step tutorials, code snippets etc etc.
On the W3 schools website once you feel confident in what you've learnt you can take practise tests, which you need to be getting at least 80% pass on.
The website also offers online exams if you pass them you get a certificate.
I also highly recommend the CIW course.
But furst things first get enrolled on a local college web development course either a city & guilds one or a BTEC.
Hope I helped PM me anytime if you have further questions.
Thanks to MNHughes from:

How have you been getting on with the home learning college I tried to do the MCSE with them and I felt pretty much left to fend for myself the tutor support was horrible to non-existant. So because of this I quit the course and they said it was non refundable - £2000

Definitely look for options at your local college.. The cheapest option I have found.
BTW - your boss's behaviour (and you, networkingNut) is not very professional. To put it politely

One site that i have found to be particularly is Netuts. They offer some good tutorials. I will defiantly look into local collages and the like.

Agree with Witch on this one local colleges are a good option to check out. Like her too I think your boss's behaviour regarding how you are referred to is disgraceful to say the least. We are all in the job to learn and make progress what you don't need is someone putting you down like that.
