Thank you for your question. I am glad to hear that you are interested in Technology.
In fact, there are may different kinds of hardware, e.g. Servers, Storage, Network equipments, notebooks, desktops, etc. All of these may have require different knowledge and skills.
I suggest you can take the Computer Engineering course in the college first. The course will provide you an overview on the computer architecture and understand how the hardware works. The course can help you to prepare to be the engineer on these platforms. You can also decide what area(s) you have interest on.
On the other hand, the openings on the hardwares usually with the vendors or manufacturer. You can seek for the intern opportunities to work in these corporates. This can help you to determine which platform you have interest to develop your career.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!

I would say getting involved in IT is a great start. Anytime you learn how to fix a piece of equipment you can naturally learn how to operate and/or improve that hardware to make it better. Outside of trade programs looks for entry level positions that will allow you some on the job training to gain your footing. Hope this helps and best of luck to you.

You should provide better context the hardware that you want to work with. If you referring to PC hardware that you get from amazon/ebay... then try to get a job with local computer repair shot and you would learn a lot, youtube has provide many good training there. However, you're thinking work in a data center environment where you have to maintain thousands of computers or network, then that require a different skill set. I don't think you will find a lot of youtube videos. In those kinds of job, they need people has certificate and work experiences since those are expensive equipment. Look at the certifications they needed.
