I am wanting to get my Apple certification for Hardware which includes the Hardware exam and OS X Troubleshooting exam. I see that just the exams are 150 a piece. What route did you go to get certified? I have been working on Apple computers for a while now, and I am pretty familiar with OS X. Did you even study or train for the exam? I took a apple certified technician class back in high school a few years back but never was able to to take the test since the way the school managed the class was a disaster. Now 3 years later I'm seriously considering paying and taking the test to become certified. I'm familiar withy eh whole mac eco system. Back then I was clueless with macs which kind of made it difficult to understand since I was a PC person back then. Anyone know the average pay or start pay for being a technician? Thanks!
