I ve finished my Bsc(computer science) last year mainly programming its a bit hard at the moment finding a programming job, i might have better chances of getting a computer support job

If you have completed a BSC then you will have the academic ability to simply buy an A+ book, study it and pass the exams. Should be no need to do a course.

You have to do it on-line - but at one of the approved examination centers - not sure if there is one in Hamilton.

Well do it on line then. Easier than plodding down to the local school.

I'd say you have a better chance with programming than support.
A+ is too common........

Tried ringing Datacom to see if they have any vacancies?
