“bought a software developer course some years ago...”

Written on: 07/09/2020 by spammemothers (3 reviews written)

bought a software developer course some years ago after a very convincing salesman speech. Did some research AFTERWARDS (yep, got caught hook line and sinker) and found their certification isn't really recognised by anyone and I could learn the same amount for about £80 at college instead of the near £5k they'd charged me! managed to cancel it and have been a software engineer for many years no thanks to Computeach… Read Full Review

“Computeach did not give good value for money”

Written on: 26/11/2019 by Ash-Lee-G (1 review written)

I signed up to Computeach (also known as Con'puteach on the Facebook group about them) back in 2008. I was given 3 years to pass the CompTIA A+ and the MCSE. They signed me up to the Windows XP MCSE and when Windows 7 came out in 2009, they refused to upgrade my course to the Windows 7 MCSE because Windows XP was becoming obsolete at the time, despite the fact that I'd paid them (in cash out of my savings) £5650! The course materials were purposefully sub standard to prevent you from getting… Read Full Review

“Not worth the money”

Written on: 11/06/2019 by marcusstockton (1 review written)

I spent the best part of £5k back in 2006 for a 2-year course in a bid to get me trained up as a software developer. A salesman came round, sold me the moon on a stick, and I chose the software developer route. Then the 1st book came - Internet And Core Computing - I asked about this as I was expecting something around software development. They said it's standard as a way to build up my knowledge from the ground up. Completed this course in a month or two, then the next book came - MCDST… Read Full Review

There are better ways of wasting £ 3.5k . The so called tutorial support is a waste of space. You phone a " tutor" up & the best advise they can give was to " reread the material " The manuals rhey gave you were rubbish. As far as im concerned its one huge sham

“CONMEN!”

Written on: 28/06/2016 by Web_designer (1 review written)

Their learning material is years out of date. It's structured in such a way that it takes longer than necessary to complete the course, in order to make you pay more than you need to. They do not provide any useful practical methods to practice what you learn. When you repeatedly ask for practical examples, they refer you to free content on third party websites. They neither have the resources, or the knowledge to effectively help you to learn skills. Everything they advertise is available… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/12/2015 by Amber372 (1 review written)

Back in 2008, i found a full page ad in the Metro free paper. Got an appointment with a salesman, turned up to my house in a Ferrari. Bloody hell, i thought to myself. Signed up just thinking of that car, because the salesman said, you can have one, if you do this course. He picked the course, i signed on the dotted line. Now, it is almost the end of 2015. Not heard nothing from Computeach, since i signed on the dotted line. Just the debt collection agency i still pay to this day £20 a… Read Full Review

“Arduous, unrewarding and pointless!!!”

Written on: 13/02/2015 by the_webber (1 review written)

My course with Computech was one of the worst experiences I have ever had in my life! I already had experience in web design, and decided that I wanted to get properly qualified via a course where I would be able to capitalize on my experience to complete the course faster than the novices that the course is designed for. Firstly the course materials that are provided are terrible! They are badly worded, inaccurate, and out dated. They are structured in such a confusing and disjointed manner… Read Full Review

“Employers beware”

Written on: 30/09/2014

Much like the previous reviewer, employers need to seriously consider any prospective employee armed with a Computeach certification. In my own experience, I've seen Computeach-qualified, future employees with little experience, no common sense, and out-of-date knowledge. When discussing industry standard skills and practices, all I received were blank expressions and phrases along the lines of "We didn't cover that." or "That wasn't in the course." We even attempted to hire a front-end… Read Full Review

“Would never employ someone with their qualification again!”

Written on: 26/07/2014

I've signed up to write this review as a manager of a small IT team. I'd never heard of computeach and only after the nightmare 6 months I've just had did I come here to read reviews. Reviews are from students and appear to be fairly mixed. So let me tell you about my experience as an employer so if your 50/50 on whether to go there you can make a decision. I interviewed 3 people, all with Computeach certifications. All passed their exams with pass rates in the 90s. They interviewed very… Read Full Review

“£3000 for £300 exams - the worst company I have ever...”

Written on: 21/01/2014 by GP1980 (1 review written)

I enrolled in 2008 for £3000, the package included 3 MS certificates. I asked to be put forward for the first exam and they refused until I passed their tests (nothing like the real exam). The only help my tutor gave was to email some links to MSDN! I could not get any help at all. I eventually paid £90 to Prometric directly (this is the company who run all the exams) and passed with over 900. Passed the remaining 2 - total price £270. They also refused to release the reading material for… Read Full Review

“Great service and value for money!”

Written on: 20/09/2013

I spent a lot of time deciding which IT training provider I should go with, and I'm really glad I went with Computeach. Right from the start I had great support. They listened to my needs and personalised a learning path that was right for me. This included a number of courses and certificates. I just missed out on passing my first exam (my own fault), but they provide free resits so I passed soon after. I know from friends who went with other training providers that this is value for money… Read Full Review

“Thank you !”

Written on: 12/09/2013 by primax (1 review written)

I had took some time to decide where and who to start my course with and as i am not a very academic person this was a task in its self. I had found many companies offering the CompTIA courses at some very reasonable prices however few offered the exam and resits needed by some as an all in one bundle. I had spoken to computeach a few times and a little nervous about the costs involved as i am fronting all this myself. I asked for particular times to pay and what ever i asked didn't seem to be… Read Full Review

“A lower quality of life”

Written on: 29/08/2013 by CriticalCosting (1 review written)

Like any training you only get out what you put in, but to me it seems all you get from out from Computeach is poor customer service. I would advise anyone wanting to train with computeach to review all other options of training. As what seems to sound a good deal to star with, may not be the case 12 months on… Read Full Review

“Poor value for money”

Written on: 25/06/2013 by Compabused (1 review written)

Very disappointed! In the first instance you are told by the sales rep that you can cancel at anytime, and when you try to do this you are told that you are in breech of contract and should refer to terms and conditions. At this point you realise you only had 7 days to cancel; but here is the thing: it takes about that amount of time to receive anything from Computeach so you have no idea what the course is going to be like before it is too late. So you carry on and hope for the best… Read Full Review
