I am not sure what your end goal is but I think if you do not have experience with it yet you would benefit with a class on web programming. Learning about html, JavaScript and CSS will help you in many other areas of computing. Taking it a step further and understanding learning how to use a server side language may not be necessary, but so many applications business applications are web based now. It can't hurt to be able to better understand what they are actually doing so you can better explain to people what you expect out of products and what is going wrong when you have trouble.

As far as A+ goes, it is a requirement for some jobs, but not most, what it really does is tells someone looking at your resume that you are serious about being a technician and aren’t just testing this out as a career path. I would say that the same thing goes for N+.

It holds weight on a resume, but experience usually counts for a lot more. Other Certs will end up holding more weight in the future.
