Is it worth taking the BTEC in Computer Engineering?

    I'm looking to get into the IT industry and my plan of action is to take the BTEC in Computer Engineering (http://www.kanduit.co.uk), followed quickly by the CompTIA A+.

    Before I spend my hard earned £280, I would like to ask this community if it would add any real value to my CV when applying for IT positions?

    To the layman, BTEC in Computer Engineering sounds impressive, but to an IT employer?

    Personally, I would say yes, go for it :) It's always better to be qualified, than not... Plus when I looked at it last year, the syllabus covered the requirements for the A+.

    Not everyone who works in IT has an "IT" employer, unless you work for a company that does IT as a main business, you're not going to have an IT employer (you may have an IT manager though).

    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
