    Hello my name is Andy, I'm currently an unemployed struggling Plumber looking for a career change. For as long as can remember ive had a keen interest in computers and they still fill most of my spare time. I am currently trying to explore my options and see what sort of route I should be taking to begin working in the computer industry, probably networking but ive still to research a little more? Hopefully I will be able to get some valuable advice from here and look forward to speaking to you soon.

    Welcome Gambino,

    I would suggest you look at CompTIA A+ and perhaps N+ if you are new to the IT world. It is the first certifications most people get.

    Check out www.comptia.org

    Hello and Welcome to CF!

    Start with A+, N+ and MCDST. They're the best starting bets.
