IT training firm goes titsup

School's out for....

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Tech training firm Advent Computer Training has been forced to cease trading, leaving its students in limbo.

With headquarters in Worcestershire, Advent provided Microsoft Certifed Systems Engineer qualifications and other courses. Such courses typically cost several thousand pounds, and students are often trying to change career and so are short of money. If a saviour is not found for Advent a lot of people are going to be left out of pocket.

But an announcement on its website apologises to students and says administrators are being appointed.

Advent said:

It is with regret that having tried our very best we have been unable to secure ongoing funding for the company and accordingly as matters currently stand we are unable to continue to provide your training.

Arrangements are being made for an insolvency practitioner to be appointed and you will be hearing from them in due course.

Late last year Advent was celebrating being one of only ten training companies asked to join the Computer Technology Industry Association (CompTIA)'s channel authorised partner programme at platinum level. ®
