    Hi, be a part of this community and introduce yourself here. :)

    If you want a class based route, contact your local college to see if they do the MCDST. They are cheaper than alot of private training companies.

    Or like it's already been mentioned, you can self-study for that cert.

    As for whether you need more certs? Well the 3 main entry level/level 1 certs are the A+, Network+ & the MCDST as they give you a broad good skill set. I would not advise doing anything higher until you get your foot in the door of IT.

    What are the job prospects like? Well the above 3 certs are geared up towards entry level/level 1 which could include helpdesl, junior tech/full technican, service desk, workshop, etc... However if your refering to the current economic climate, well we're in a resession so while there are still jobs out there, there's going to be more competition...

    Certifications: CITP, PGDip, BSc, HNC, LCGI, PTLLS, MCT, MCITP, MCTS, MCSE, MCSA:M, MCSA, MCDST, MCP, MTA, MCAS, MOS (Master), A+, N+, S+, ACA, VCA, etc... & 2nd Degree Black Belt
    WIP: MSc in Tech Management
