Anyway quite frankly I'm sick of working dead end jobs that pay F all and aren't getting me anywhere in life have been thinking about studying for a while now and I.T is an industry that appeals to me. However I haven't studied for several years (since school which I didn't do that well at) I do consider myself pretty intelligent but I wouldn't consider myself 'book smart' hence not doing great at school. For this reason I’m wanting some advice before dropping 5 grand on a course I was wondering if any of you have any references, guides, quizzes or advice I could look at to see if I’m capable of studying I.T? I do consider myself better at computers than most people which is why this industry appeals me here’s a list of some computer related stuff I’ve done over the years.
Replaced several hard drives on desktop and laptop and installed fresh Windows on them.
Installed wireless modem on home network although took me a lot longer and a lot more swear words than it should have.
Have flashed custom roms on several android phones and tablets the past few years although again took me longer and a lot more swear words than it should have particularly installing drivers on windows 8.
I’m pretty awesome at finding pretty much anything on the net for free lol
More recently been learning about proxies and vpns (Tor etc)
As you can see it’s not exactly advanced stuff but I’m far from a noob while I don’t think I’ll find the beginner and intermediate stuff too difficult to learn the more advanced stuff concerns me. The course I’m looking at is more of a self-learning course where you teach yourself and the tutors are there to help if you need it as opposed to the traditional classroom environment I think this would suit me a lot better anyone here study at an institute that had this learning style if so how did you find it? Studying I.T is something I’d really like to do but I guess a have a bit of self-doubt especially with the high fees involved, maybe I just need a bit of reassurance! Haha, thanks is advance.
