    Right, so after 6 months on the uni helpdesk I'm booked in for my A+ in October, and I've got a revision book waiting at the library :-) but I was wondering about some sort of Mac certificate too. On some days, half the people that come in/ring our helpdesk have an Apple problem, and though I've never been a fanboy I'm getting a bit better at figuring them out. I've acquired a colleague's old Macbook to muck about with too.

    So I've had a look at training.apple.com, but I'm not at all sure where to start. Does Apple even have a qualification to cover experience as basic as mine, just basic troubleshooting really?

    Apple's basic certifications would be the Apple Certified Associate: Mac Integration Basics 10.8 (the ACA), see here. This would cover the basics with integrating Mac's into a Windows environment.

    The next stage up would be the Apple Certified Support Professional (ACSP). This one would be along the lines of the MCP/MCTS level from MS :)

    I'd say look into the ACA first and if you find that useful, then go onto the ACSP track :)
    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

    Thanks! I wasn't sure if I'd missed one below ACA or not. Will give it a go probably soon after my A+ exams.
