go for a hands on course rather than theory only.

CAN YOU SUGGEST ANY

I did evening school at a college re building a pc and being able to diagnose faults and repair. if the pc blew or any of its bits the instructed just popped in the store room and brought out another. we had a class of about 12 and worked a pc between 2. did theory as well as a lot of hands on, very enjoyable.

did another mail order where the training was on a box of cds using a virtual pc set up - its was rubbish, an american company based in ireland.

try your local night schools advertised in your library.

I would assume that you would put your worries to your Tutors, or their superiors - surely they are in the best position to advise you regarding your Canadian intentions.

Also, any IT Novice would probably be able to tell you that using all capital letters is akin to SHOUTING - and is very much frowned upon in Forums.

I AM SO SORRY THIS IS MY FIRST TIME AND ONLY FORUM I HAVE USED BUT I HAVE LEANED SOMETHING CAN YOU HEAR ME !!

And that is certainly not the way to get help in any Forum. I for one, don't like being shouted at!

i forgot to turn the caps lock off before if you dont make mistakes you dont learn

OK - accepted, I was only trying to help in any case.

I still think your tutors should be able to help/advise you best - a pretty sorry lot if they can't.
