Before I start I just want to declare that I DO realise that I am too late for the above named course.
I'm looking to do a not too basic course in Computers that has a ready made and well laid out path to further levels ie the Hons Degree. I saw on other posts that verified NCI folks keep an eye on here and I'm hoping they can help. Hearing from them would be great, also from people who have previously completed or on the path I am planning for myself.
The couple of questions I have are:
Overall difficulty of the course?: I've always had an interest computers and since I finished college/established my career path I really regret not doing a computer course initially. Is it going to be overly difficult for an intelligent person who has zero experience in this field. This ties into my next question.....
Course workload; I plan to study at night as I currently work fulltime in a unrelated area I'm wondering how much time is required for home study/revision. (I still want to retain some sort of social life too )
Side note - I've previously completed a years night time course so I know exactly the demands of travel and actually class attendance)
Study progression: On completion of the higher cert and deciding to join year 3 of the honours degree would I be far behind/less knowledgable in the course subject as someone who decided to just to the Honours degree from the outset. (I plan to do the higher cert to ensure I like the subjects/computer area. I will stick out a two year program if I dont like it after semester 1 but a four year course would be a different story).
