Your company is bumping you off?! That's a bit drastic, isn't it? What did you do, sleep with the boss' teenage daughter?heh heh.. no I guess bumped off is a bad term.. at least in American English.. I'm not sure where I picked up that gem of a literary remark.
Sorry, couldn't resist. My understanding of being bumped off is "killed" Anyway, hope that provides you with a laugh dduring what can only be a stressful and trying time.laughs are good.
Now, it would help us to help you, I think, if you give us an idea of where you are? A class that includes hardware will likely be "physical", meaning that you'll need to attend in person, and I'm assuming that your employer is going to pay for the course(s), but not airfare and living expenses if you have to move in order to attend school? Where I am, there are a lot of 12 to 18 month courses that offer students a new notebook on successful completion. They tend to be vocational colleges, though some may well offer some computer training. Not sure!I'm in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I have about 2500$ to spend. If possible I'd like to pick up some dot net expertise, or lacking that, improve my java web application ability or maybe worst comes to worst, microsoft sharepoint.
