I have been working at my school helping out for around 3 years and the IT support like me around. 


I am leaving school next year and I do not know what type of job or certificate course I should apply for. 


I have knowledge that I have been taught and taught myself with software but I am not very knowledgeable with hardware and networking. 


I want to work at a computer shop that troubleshoot computer problems and wanting to know what type of path way I should take?


Thank you guys :D

Well, if you're looking to troubleshoot computer problems you're going to need to bone up on your hardware at least.  You'll want to get your CompTIA A+

A+ is pretty mandatory in job hunting for techs. After that I'd say get Net+ and then figure out if you would rather do security, hardware, software, etc. After you're sure about what you want to do you can then research more on what certifications to work on getting to advance in the direction you want to go.

I agree with A+. It is a good starting point, you learn the basics of everything :-) For networking, you might try CCNA.
