A wee bit of promotion here. CES Services in Edinburgh are running a number of Websphere and Portal courses. So - fancy a 4-5 day course learning this stuff in EDI ?
Course, if your an IBM Business Partner, you get most (if not all) of the money back on a "you pass, we pay" basis. So its a 4-5 intensive bootcamp, with IBM certified courses, in Bonnie Edinburgh.

Keen ? I am. I mean - portal training, in the city in Europe with more pubs per square mile than anywhere else ? Rock on!

(Disclaimer. My first ever job was for a company called Granite Chips [Aberdonian Computer company] in Edinburgh, where I first met Ashok - the founder of CES. He was a very good trainer then, and he's a very good trainer now).
