    My name is Kris and I've just started Studying for my A+

    I'm based in Aberdeen and the plan is to self study A+, N+ , ITIL and then either Microsoft MCDST... or the Cisco CCNA route.

    The eventual aim (with A+, N+ and ITIL) is to get work in IT within the oil industry and continue to study at night.

    Some quick questions:

    Is there anyone here currently working in IT Support/Admin within the Oil Industry and which skills/certificates are prized?

    Otherwise I've heard that some of the above certs can be used to gain credits with the Open University as part of a Foundation Degree in IT/Computing. Have any forum members taken this route and can they provide links to related threads?

    I'm excited to be starting down this path. Thanks in advance for any advice

    Kris

    Welcome! I can't comment on the oil industry, but the A+ is a great entry point for certifications in IT support.

    Thanks Guys,

    This forum is incredible. I've already learned so much just by scratching the surface of some threads and sections. It's also refreshingly free of the nonsense you find on many forums.

    Professor Messer, Some of the usual routes through the certificates, Job/CV advice and even IT volunteering...

    Many people should be proud of their contributions

    Welcome to CF keetofer. :)

    Its good etiquette to start your own introduction thread not post on another members.
