    How old are you? Are you doing grade 12 or something?
    CMD this: If Mr Bean went to the shops and told teddy that he would be back at 6pm, why was teddy surprised to see him home at 5pm?

    That, and a strong wrist to wield your trusty screwdriver
    There's no regulations or licenses required. You can simply advertise yourself as a PC Tech and off you go.

    Unfortunately, (because it's so easy to get started) - just about anyone can call himself an IT Specialist and screw alot of people over who loses any and all trust in the industry.

    A+ is your starter... Got to be a problem solver though.

    a friend of mine started with a+, and worked part time at IC and he gained a lot on the job training to go with all the a+ knowledge...so i reckon it's a good start, and then as time goes on, do some more courses
    Me fail English? That's unpossible.

    N+ and then do your CCNA.

    But you have to do your comptia certification before December 2010!!

    Current certificate holders will still have valid certs for life, but any new certifications earned after December 31st, 2010 will expire every three years.

    No no I'm looking to do that as a way to make a bit more money while I study... Definitely don't want to do it as a career.
