Top 10 Signs You're Enrolled In A Dodgy IT Course

Top 10 signs you're enrolled in a dodgy computer course

1. Your tutor has worked more on `PD' than `PDF'.

2. Course advertisements are stamped `Approved by NZQA'.

3. As an inducement to enrol, it offers a six pack of beer and a carton of smokes.

4. You ask the tutor where you can get some Coke and he replies "I don't know, but there's a P Lab in Room 10".

5. The computers are not only wireless, but also cordless.

6. You notice all the software is branded 'Mikerosoft'.

7. Ctrl Alt Delete takes you to a page asking you for your Westpac account details.

8. When she can't answer a question the tutor refers you to one of the receivers.

9. The lesson takes twice as long as planned because the tutor is simultaneously working as a telemarketer using a phone in the lab.

10. Your diploma is signed by the Minister of Education, Dr Bernie Ogilvy.
