IT Qualifications


Active Member
I have been toying with the idea of getting some IT qualifications that would help me to get some sort of IT support job. I am quite computer literate and done a HNC in IT years ago. Ideally i would like to study at home as i work full time and my employer won't allow me time off.

What qualifications could i do that would be of interest to prospective employers.

Not wanted to discourage you, but two things you should be aware of

(i) The IT market is shockingly over supplied at the moment - many many more qualified and experienced people on the market then their are jobs

(ii) Unless being recruited onto a graduate scheme, an employer would be looking for experience to back up the qualifications. I appreciate that everyone has to start somewhere but unfortunately, there are enough experienced people on the market that employers can afford to take this approach.

Run a search on the same subject and see the reviews from here from the past few months. Same old advice, don't bother unless you find a niche subject like online peadophilia hunting (3 year uni course)..



IT support is dead at the moment, it's all generic standarised machines, ghost image, remote IT hardly any need for on site IT techs anymore :-( sucks and PC's are so cheap don't repair them just send the whole base unit back to offsite IT repair departments/companies (contacted) and sent back.
