    Here's a quote when I tried to do a WHOIS on that domain name:

    "Unfortunately, this domain is registered through Network Solutions, the worst registrar (as far as WHOIS is concerned).
    They do not support WHOIS lookups from nearly ad-free sites like ours (because of the volume of hits from us), and try to force
    users of our site to use their ad-laden site."

    And, it forces a redirect to Network Solutions page no matter what.

    Please ask/tell your brother to contact a local, accredited institution if he wants to take courses, or take a night to learn how to do Google seaches with the company name followed by the word "scam" to see what kind of responses come back. He almost made a darned expensive mistake...

    It's definitely not a scam. I actually used them to get my A+ Certification about 8 years ago. They're expensive, and they prepare you to take certification exams.

    They will finance, and it's up to you to pass the exams. The MCSE route is tough, but if you want to pay for training...this site will help!

    And by the way...my company paid for the training, so I never knew how expensive it was. There are much cheaper ways to get training. If it were up to me, I would have not used them and probably went to a community college.

    But, they did help. I can't argue with FREE.
