This is, in a sense, a pretty rhetorical question. I know that education is a valuable commodity, and that learning is a never-ending process. I know that while I'm very good at doing those things that I know how to do, there is also far more knowledge out there than I could ever hope to completely absorb, and there are always people who know far more than I do - which has saved my not-so-perky-anymore butt on more than one occasion!
I hold a Bachelor's in Computer Science. Or more accurately, I hold a Bachelor's in Business Management, with a Computer Science major. I don't utilize that degree to its full potential - I'm a stay-at-home Mom, which I wouldn't trade for anything in the world. I do part-time work on web sites for local businesses, and pick up some odd jobs doing repairs and maintenance on hardware, and some software tutoring. And I play on my computer a lot. I mean, a lot. I am at my happiest when I dive inside of a computer, poking around in its guts and looking for ways to make improvements.
So, my question is this:
BC has a current offer for the CompTIA-IT Certification Career Advancement Course Bundle. At $59.00, it's a freakin' steal. I'd like to get opinions from others here: Would it be worth my time to invest in this offer? I doubt that I'd use the education for an awful lot in terms of marketing myself or seeking employment - as I said, I like being a stay-at-home Mom, and I'm grateful that my situation allows me to be one. But I also value education, and I love the process of learning and acquiring new knowledge and skills. At heart, I'm just a nerdy girl who loves computers.
