I am currently making a career change into the IT industry.  Most of my career I have been the "unofficial" go-to person for computer problems and I finally decided to get paid for it.

I researched many of the certification schools in my town and found that New Horizons had an excellent job placement program (97% placement) and a partnership with Microsoft. They also have a pass/fail guarantee which means that if I fail an exam, they pay for me to take it again until I pass.  When I finish my certifications, I begin an internship program and then I will have a few job options available to me.

I considered studying alone, but by going to school I have access to resources and instructors and that has proven invaluable.

Total cost for A+, Network+, MCSE, MCSA: Security is $11,000 us plus the costs of tests.

No matter where you go, there you are.

That is basically how I have done it as well.

Seems to have been a postive step for me for at this point.

Best of Luck!

Go out there and get it. It does not matter with your ago or no experience or certs. Put whatever you do and whatever certifications you have on your resume. It all depends on your luck.  You must try to see it yourself.
You dont try You dont know.  When in your job search, meet people and learn and make it better for yourself.  
You have already one step ahead because you want to enter IT field so do it.
Do not let anyone discourage you in any way.
Everyone's situation is different.
Do it and see it yourself. You never know until you try.

Best of luck to you.
Let us know how you do.
