    Hey everyone,

    I've just booked my exams for A+, 18th of April .... totally papping myself!

    Anyone out there know what the prospects of employment are for 'fish out of water' ! ?

    Seems that a lot of employers are looking for experience, although training agencies etc. will have you believe that the industry is 'crying out' for enthusiastic newbies.

    Hi,

    Welcome to the forum.

    A+ will give you a foundational understanding of installing operating systems/software and also some basic hardware repairs that a support technician might need to carry out most days.

    the will, determination and studying to master your chosen topics will see you through. Good luck.

    If i were you i would start knocking on the doors of you local PC repair shops and ask them directly if they have any entry level positions available. A lot of these places can't afford the fees charged by agencies.

    Good luck and welcome to CF 8)
