I am looking for a career change at age 45! As much as I love the Apple computer, (and I am more than a litle bit familiar with consumer PC's of nearly every genre,) I am considering the possibilities of a computer career. My unguided plan is to be a Mac-centric hardware specialist with further reaching capabilites, such as IS/IT support functions. In my current position, I earned only $70k last year. I want to find some answers to these burning questions: 1. Is anyone here Applecare Technician certified? 2. If so, how much value would you place on the training? 3. If you could pick the most lucrative future to train for in the computer field, what would you forcast it being? 4. What is the best way, or where is the best place to find this kind of work? (I am willing to relocate anywhere in the US, OR possibly???) I am sure that these questions are just the beginning of discovery. My wife wants to know about earning potential, and how difficult it could be to find the right job. Obviously after 28 years of working, I still have not found the ideal employer. I am not interested in starting my own business, but I will probably look into the local demand for a Mac-centric sort of "Nerd-Squad" service. Just in case... Obviously, if this is a lucrative move, I will seek the best and most time effective training available. Immediately. Help a brother out. Thanx.
