Well, not having sat the course, I can't speak for it's quality. TBH I'm not a
huge fan of training courses. I've been through a few of them in my time, and
for them to be worthwhile, I feel they need to be a good match to you i.e. to
push you a little and also, they need to be taught by a good teacher, who
knows the subject. I've had some excellent training courses, but I've wasted
my time on some rather crap courses too. And sadly, you can't really tell the
difference until after the course. Many years ago, I even attended a course
which was a curate's egg (it was in Netware programming IIRC). The first day
and a half was taught by an expert, who could teach. For the remainder, a new
teacher took over, and it was crap.

I merely meant that the cert.'s relevance to future employers wasn't really an
item of concern to you.
