HI all,

I vow to be an IT professional but I don't have much higher educational background in IT field.

Could I be advised to access IT library from beginning to advanced level at any web-site?

Looking for kind reply

Thank you

I would start with training for the CompTIA A+ certification exam.

Professor Messer has free video training to cover all aspects of the A+ (and Network+) exams.

Even though I had already used computers for years and didn't even have to study to pass the exam, it was the first certification I obtained after dropping out of engineering school, and with that one certification I was hired for an entry-level technical support position 3 years ago. I was recently promoted to manager.

After A+, I would recommend Network+ if it interests you.

The problem you may run into is that many employers are still looking out for only formal education degrees or previous experience, even for entry level IT. It's like they completely ignore the certifications. Even so, getting one is better than nothing.

Thank you textbook.

For me , it is unfair for poor people to further their career advancement since they cannot invest their money in education unlike the rich.

I have one certification but surprisingly , my achievement is far more than those who have degree.It is all about hardship to gain exposure.

But sure I will be humble to learn and practice.

on the way now to learn from professor messer .

Congratulations to those certified and my wish of encouragement for those wanting to pursue this field.
I use my computer every day for my small business. I have been called upon from time to time to help family members when they find themselves infected. My resource is always BC. The thought of dealing with a companies or schools computers system makes my stomach flip. My hat is off to IT people. I could never do that for a living.
I just want this magic blinking box to just keep working and to not bother me. :wacko:
