This is the field I would love to pursuit. I plan on hitting up the local technical college at the beginning of next year, or sooner. But I am wondering is there any certs that I can go after before attending college? If so, how long would it take to complete?

you could do certs before college, however they can be really involved and costly if you don't already have a job. you could go for things such as a ccna (http://www.amazon.com/CCNA-Certified-Ne ... 252&sr=8-2). I'd reccomend going through school first, because a degree will get you an interview, certs will help get you the job, and experience keeps it. There are always exceptions.

Ramm is right, you really should start with a college program first, even if it is only an associates degree. I work for a school district, and although people in the computer fields know that sometimes hands on experience is key, when it comes time for budget talks and appropriations, having that degree makes you look better under the microscope, and then the certs and such help fill out your resume. A degree can mean earning 5-10 dollars more an hour.
Good luck!

A lot depends on what you want to do.

Build PCs?

Straight system admin?

Network admin/architecting?

Security?
