For the past two years I have been working (very slowly) towards my Microsoft Office 2000 Master certificate. It cost me a small fortune from a reputable IT training company. I sat four of the exams at civilian centres but when it came to number five I found out that I could do the exam at the local Army Learning Centre. Not only could I sit the exam, the exam fee was cheaper and I could have had all the study material for free! All I needed to get access to the ALC was my MoD 90 to get in the main gate. The ALCs do a whole raft of courses, IT and Business & Management, which I think are linked with www.learndirect.co.uk. If you are looking for any courses it is well worth having a look at what they can offer.
