    Having had no luck whatsoever with my (seemingly useless) Cerco certificate I have started to learn network plus. I am using a book to study and have allowed myself 6 months. As I live in a very poor area for IT positions (Suffolk) I have not applied for much lately as I never seem to have the experience companies are asking for. Will the network plus open up many opportunities that are not available now and is it worth applying now before I have the qualification?

    If you read around the forums you'll see this question has been asked and answered many times before.

    There is NO substitute for experience when it comes to IT so yes, start applying for entry level stuff now (you can always mention you're studying). If you're a complete novice you should probably start with the A+ and then move on to Network+.

    Nothing to stop you putting together your CV and approaching companies direct saying you're looking for an entry level position to get you started on an IT career.
