http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=pc+maintenance+courses+uk&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-GB:official&client=firefox-a

This search shows numerous courses available,using the magazines like Floodlight and Hot courses,there is also Open University.
Do you wish a 'distance' learning course or attend locally.?
Check your local college and or night/day courses.
I myself am possibly looking to take a course here About Us - Kandu IT, not for a career change but mainly for personal gain.
Obviously check prices,can you get government aid ?,and also student reviews,a must,to ascertain the best college and course (that word again).
Good luck to you on your search and your future prospects.:thumbup2:

Hi
I'm wanting to do a course hands on so i can go in & work alongside others & learn!

I contacted a few places like computeach & the fees are astronomical!
They say that some of the courses at colleges aren't recognized!

Comptra being the only ones worth doing!

Anyone know about this?

Hi
Rathr than googling 'courses', maybe try qualification instead? It brings up quals by city & guilds etc, might be a better option if you are considering a career change:

http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=pc+maintenance+courses+uk&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-GB:official&client=firefox-a#hl=en&pq=pc%20maintenance%20courses%20uk&xhr=t&q=pc+maintenance+qualification&cp=18&pf=p&sclient=psy&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-GB%3Aofficial&source=hp&aq=0v&aqi=&aql=&oq=pc+maintenance+qua&pbx=1&fp=759d6ec2d55f5557

Depending on your circumstances, you might be able to study from home, part time or have a work placement.

Also qualifications may attract more funding:
