Review: 360gsp College – VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage [V5.0] course

This post is way overdue.

This is a quick review of the VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage [V5.0] course I attended via 360gsp college.

I attended this course over 4 weekends Saturday – Sunday (8 days) The last couple of days were covering some material that has been cut out of the training material but is on the exam such as host profiles and storage profiles.

The instructor Dai is a fantastic teacher and knows the subject inside out. Any questions we had were answered in confidence.

I was surprised by the level of knowledge of fellow students on the course,  ranging from CCIE to Project Managers, I was not expecting this and this made the course more enjoyable talking to fellow IT professionals.

The facilities and course material were superb, this being my first IT course and self funded I wasn’t disappointed. There is on site parking, although its best calling ahead to ensure a space can be reserved. Across the round from the training centre are a few newsagents and a fast food place (does nice food). There is a pub, but the people hanging outside kinda put as off.. therefore no idea if it’s any good! Be aware there are a couple of cash machines, these do in fact charge. Most of the weekends I took packet lunch as this was cheaper and can just snack in class. There is water (chilled) drinking facilities on site.

I would highly recommend taking the VMware course via the 360gsp college. Other IT Professionals over at certforums have had a similar experience.

I plan on taking the VCP 5 exam sometime early next year. A post will follow with study material I used similar to that of my Cisco ICND 1 post.

    HI,

    I am graduated and got both bachelor and masters degree in Telecommunications and recently i passed my oracle admin part 1 . I am struggling to get a job in my field as i have no hands on experience in IT and recently i have found 360 gsp they provide courses and job guarantee aswell and for the job Guarantee they charge 3000 gbp including the course.

    I need more information regarding 360 gsp and how far they will help a student to get the job or it just a marketing policy . thanks

      hello, have you joined 360gsp, as i got appointment tomorrow, and i just want if anyone have any experience with 360gsp.

        I don’t advice you, it is a totally wastinf for money, just download the CBT vedio and do the exams, you will be ok,
        they promise that they will help you to find a job but they are lying, only they help you to have a loan to pay them.

    i registered with
    360gsp in 5 IT course, there were only one tutor, he orginal Chinese, his
    accent wasn’t understandable and his knowledge was very poor.

    also i had to wait months between each course to have enough student in the class.

    i had to study alot buy myself, using CBTand leaning books at home is more better than this college,

    they promise you that they will help you to find a job, but as soon as you finish the course, they
    start finding excuses like, the market is not good and you need to do another
    too courses with us to be able to find a good job

    I am very happy to give you free advice how to study by yourself and save your money.

    • Hi Sam,

      Sorry you feel this way about 360gsp. Dai does have a slight accent but I never had an issue with this nor did any of the class, in fact he was very approachable when something wasn’t clear to us. I personally would go back to Dai to further training in the future.

      You will never find a course that will cover ‘everything’ and will from time to time need to read up to further your knowledge. This is part of learning and you will need to do this when in an IT job.

      Hi Sam79 please can you elaborate? I had an appointment with them today and whilst I was there I got a sense it was a scam type setting as well. Half of the people there didn’t seem to speak english. It seems to me that all they do is help you get qualified at the basic level then like you said make excuses as to why you can’t find a job. Please do elaborate on this topic as I don’t want to pay them the fee then be treated like an idiot.

      Thanks!!!!
