Revisiting my options

    I've been here once before, looking at my options for where to go in my career.
    I didnt go through with the training as my role changed and I became a Team Leader.
    I've now moved back into a Tech Support role (2nd line support for bespoke software) but I only support the bespoke software (one of them is in a 16bit version of superbase!).

    I want to start doing more IT based qualifications. I realise that to re-train I am going to take a significant hit in wages, as after 10 and a half years working for the same company, I am on a decent wage. I also accept that short term pain for long term gain, as once I've been in a more IT based role, I'll be more free to move into different, better paying roles.

    So, should I start with the A+ still, then N+ and then the latest Windows desktop support qualifications?

    I have little experience these days of supporting anything other than the bespoke products that I support now, though do have a little bit of Windows desktop support.

    Thanks, your input and advice will be appreciated.

    Yea i would say A+ and N+ are a great place to start. Thats what i did before finding my first IT job (Desktop Support Analyst)

    Not only did they help me get recognised and get an interview but i also learnt alot from these.
