Security pay, but not security work

IrishRookie sorry to hear the way things are panning out for you, I've been there and understand from first hand.

There is some superb advice above, on entering ECP in particular. If that is something you want to do, go for it!
As for your question about the investment, i sympathise, its a touch one. I would start with the age old "what do I want and where do I want to be in 5 years" question?

Security is a broad and dynamic industry, look at what else you could invest that £5k on and see what it might get you.

I don't know what your IT aptitude is like but for the same money as a CP course you could be training towards some very useful info sec qualifications as an example, with much much more security and higher pay - boring some might say, but everyone is different.

Feel free to drop me a PM; I'd be more than happy to talk you through some general option or just offer a sounding board, that's what this forum is about.

Good luck.

SpecialistK9 hit the nail on the head.

I've done this many times, in fact, I've done it in every job i've been in haha. You end up doing small bits and bobs here and there until you end up being the guy who does it all on minimum wage. Don't get me wrong, i've nothing against helping out at work, doing a bit of cleaning and other duties but it always builds up to a lot more work and i get to the point of telling my employer where to shove their job.

Unfortunately there are a lot of ungrateful users out there :(

This is really nice for me to have this thread and it is really useful enough for me to get knowledge whatever you are discussing the issues and important points.
