    I eventually want to be in tech support / Pc tech at what stage would you recommend applying for entry level positions while doing my A+ ?

    ASAP, you can put in your application that you are studying. Go for entry level/trainee roles.

    Even at the ripe old age of 39, is this going to be a challenge ?

    no there are some people on here much older than you and haven't been in IT for long.

    Age doesn't matter, 39 isn't old anyway.

    GBL's advice is sound.

    Good luck with the A+, you are never too old to get into IT. I wish there were more 30+ starting out in IT. "Sometimes" school leavers are nothing but trouble :twisted:
