Hello Jacob, what a great question! Per discussion with my colleague who is in the IT industry, he strongly recommended A+ certification. He said it is a really good place to start. It may take some time to complete it, but it must be worth it! Best of luck! :)

I spent some time working in IT/PC Repair and I found that the study I did for the CompTIA A+ exam was suitable for the basic work that I was expected to perform. Network+ and Security+ would also be helpful in today's environment.

IT is a great field! I'm glad you're interested. The CompTIA IT Fundamentals is a great entry level IT Certification. The CompTIA A+ certification will give you a knowledge of operating systems, hardware, basic networking and more. It's probably the best fit for IT/PC repair work, but you would also have the knowledge to take a role in desktop support or help desk.

Maria recommends the following next steps:

You could acquire the abilities required to operate as a computer repair technician by completing the CompTIA A+ certification program.

CompTIA A+

The beginning of an IT profession is here. Foundational IT abilities are validated by the performance-based tests across a range of hardware and operating systems.

After completing the next stage, you can apply for the following certification.

CompTIA Network+

The key abilities required to competently design, setup, administer, and troubleshoot any wired and wireless devices are recognized by the Network+ certification.

Both of these qualifications will be beneficial, and they will boost one's career confidence.

I would recommend CompTIA A+ and Network+ as starting points. These will help with PC repair, if you decide to go beyond that, then start looking into Cisco certifications.
