Guess everyone thought I sounded like a total wanker so they did not reply
Basically I am employed by a world wide company spending my time in the operations of their bottled spring water division.The company won't pay for computer training since it is not job related. I cannot see myself doing this type of work for much longer. Too physical not to mention it is a dead end position. However it does pay the bills so I am stuck here unless something better becomes available.
Computers are my passion. I would like to be involved with them for a living but I am not sure where to turn. I didn't take the A+ exam since I figured it was kind of a waste. Might be off in my thinking but didn't think it would take me anywhere. I just stay busy working on and building machines for friends and associates.
Reason I mention online courses is because my schedule is so hectic. Busy from morning to night with no set quit time so it is basically impossible to attend night school of any sort. Not sure if the microsoft certifications are the way to go (or start I should say). I do learn better by learning "hands on". I tried to learn from some of the prep books availble however I find it hard to pay attention to them for extended periods of time.
If I do put in the time I would like to certifiy myself in something that would make me somewhat employable. Any thoughts on which way to go or advice in general would be appeciated.
