Hey everyone! I've recently sold a business I had for 13 years, and for a while it was relaxing to do nothing, but now, I'm just getting bored. I've always had a knack for computers, but I'm no expert. I'd like some direction on some online schools that offer computer repair courses. I'm looking for schools that are highly regarded (or as highly regarded as you can get for an online school) and also offer more advanced courses when I get to that point. 


Or, should I actually go back to college and get a degree in computer science? That just seems like overkill, especially for my needs. I already have a Masters, anyway. (Biomechanics) 


Thanks, in advance for your advice.

What do you want to accomplish?


I did an NRI course back in the day, but they are no longer around.  I didn't feel that I got my money's worth, but the GI Bill reimbursed for it and that was the main reason for taking it.


I believe you can do much better for less money than any online course.

Teach yourself.


Overclockers.com and anandtech.com are highly regarded, highly technical computer forums. You could start there. Got a question? Ask it. You will learn faster if you make your own curriculum based on the way you learn.

A degree in computer science will teach you nothing about computer repair.

CompTIA's A+ course does teach a basic overview of PC repair.  It doesn't teach everything of course, nothing can, but it is a qualification that is recognised.
