    HNC in Computing (Software Engineering) - partly self funded
    MCSE Server 2000 - partly self funded
    MCSA Server 2003 - totally self funded
    CCNA course through Open University - totally self funded

    I'm only an MCSA on 2003 because I did one upgrade exam rather than two. My plan was to upgrade to MCITP and it was the same number of exams whichever route I took. At the time I had a lot going on in my life and had to pay for the exams myself although my employer would let me have some time off to take them. Unfortunately I haven't had the inclination, time or money to do any more yet.

    I took the CompTia A+ course 2 years ago, which led me into this career, as I was mainly self-taught up until that point.

    My next course will be the Network +.

    Mainly self taught but with a few courses under my belt ... slowly picking up some more (got Prince2 booked in now for July) but still prefer getting the experience rather than the course.

    A lot of my 'extra' stuff like first aid, etc have all lapsed now and no intention of getting them again.

    I've got my MCSA in Windows 2000, but not done anything since, currently studying 70-640 to start my MCITP funded by school, got the books and they will pay for exams.
