In my experience most start out with the CompTia A+ certification and go from there.

You get them one of two ways, you can take a class that teaches you what you need to know and integrates the certification exam at the end of the course or

You can self study and just take the test at any one of many testing centers around the states and many foreign countries.

Cost can vary, a class may cost you anywhere from $1000-$3000 where as just taking the test will be somewhere around $250

I don't know if they expire.

There is no age limit, but those under 18 need an authorization form signed by parent or gaurdien to take the test.

Once you get your A+ cert, it will never expire.

For a tech job, I'd recommend getting A+ first, it opens the door to all the rest of the certifications, and it serves as a good baseline to your standard repair knowledge. Network+ would be nice too, you'll get to learn all about the different topologies and how to run cable, etc.

If you are going to work in a coordinator position, I would look into the Network+ and Server+ as well. This way you can brush up on all your topologies and such and you'll get to memorize backup routines of servers.

Good luck!
