    Hi guys and gals!
    I found your site via a google and as I need to get some certs done this year then it looks like a good place to be.

    I ran a PC shop for 5 years and know the basics inside out when it comes to quick fix and building and installing most things, but i dont have nothing on paper and it looks like i have to start from scratch if i want to do 1st line pc support and work up.

    Not sure what i need to sit but i shall start to read!!

    Any pointers would be greatly felt:)

    Hi and welcome to CF:) well judging from your post and experience in PC building the Comptia A+ cert and N+ would be good certs to go for. I would also look into the MS cert MCDST once done with the Comptia certs.

    Best wishes.

    Many thanks, but A+ is just a confirmation i can build etc isnt it?I know the guy who hired me scoffed at it and hired me on what i have done etc, maybe i am wrong?

    If you want "something on paper", then the A+ is indeed the certification that shows what you've been doing these past five years. If you want to get the Network+ and MCDST, those are great entry-level certifications as well.
