I was recently fired from my dead end minimum wage job which is going to give me alot of time and I feel like it's the perfect movement since I'm still very young to put myself officially into the Information Technology field. I need to start somewhere and people suggest I should start with A+ certification and move up over time but there's another course I'm interested in called IT Fundamentals.
What are the pros and cons of each, should I learn one before the other, I've been exposed to technology my entire life and I tend to know the basics of how to fix and diagnosis most of my own issues as well as my families issues but I can't say for sure I know everything there is about the computer world, I want to move into Networking but I know I need to know the basics first and I would like some feedback on which I should invest in first, The IT fundamentals course from CompTIA or the A+ certification by CompTIA, I know alot of people are certified in todays world and only a single certification would help me land my dream job but I need a place to start and it seems like CompTIA is that place, any suggestions to someone who wants to progress in the IT world and the best place to start.
