    most will tell you there is no employement in the industry currently.
    expect to take the courses and then either be out of work or taking a low
    paying entry job. do this becuase you love the work, not to get rich.
    mostly you will need experience and plenty of it to find the job now-a-
    days.

    Try looking at a training program that runs in between a bootcamp and
    a normal paced course. Like www.i2ko.com

    ????WTF? take some time to read.

    Barry, my post was to have Kolin change his clock. I'm good for training
    myself thanks. PS Bootcamps SUCK. longer courses are better as they will
    give you more time to let things sift in, ask better questions and
    actually LEARN the products.

    my 2¢
