Be Aware!Speaking of things that achieve no results, have you ever attended or heard about the "jump-jump-and-kick-out" training courses? They snatch your money for 2-3 days of training in advance and charge $300-$400 in daily fees. The classes rush from one topic to another with the speed of light.
This approach leaves the students feeling insecure and it also neglects the obvious need for practical application. Such purpose and design automatically sets-up the student in these classes for failure. As a consumer, you waste your money and your valuable time, and the results are unacceptable.
All of the expensive, short-term courses aim solely at certification, not at knowledge or practice. In this industry, only the combination of theoretical and practical knowledge allows you to become a real expert.
The human brain needs time to fully comprehend information presented in class, especially when it is highly technical. Therefore, the training programs must be designed to allow enough time for studying, practicing, asking questions, and doing homework such as reviewing the learned material and performing some homework assignments.
Otherwise, the student accepts a job and must re-learn everything from the beginning because he/she never applied the knowledge. That is precisely what happened to many of us, and hundreds of other professionals who are finding themselves in a similar situation. Unfortunately, this is AN ORDINARY PROBLEM.
Don't Be Fooled!
You may have heard professionals and employers speak about the right combination of certifications (like A+, MCSE, CCNA or CIW) and the guarantee they offer: a job with a nice paycheck. Unfortunately, there are many people who were fooled by the marketing gimmicks of the training organizations. They enrolled in the "quick training programs" or "boot camps" without having ANY hands-on experience, received one or more certifications, and still cannot find a job or have extreme difficulty meeting the demands of the job.
S T O P The Certification Propaganda! Tell Me the Truth!
Chris Freyer, a software engineer and reader of Computing Careers, made very good points worth consideration. Speaking about the limitations of many of the standardized test-oriented certification exams, Chris wrote:

Choosing the right Training Center - My "10 Wishes List":
Choosing the right training center for your professional courses can play a significant role in your subsequent success or failure, regardless of whether your goal is to increase your knowledge of a particular product or to change careers.
