    Anyone sign up and pay for the online materials just to understand more about your equipment and fix things yourself?

    Thanks.

    I know this is a dig but it's perfectly fair to say this isn't Windows. You don't need the equivalent of an associate's degree to fix your own Mac stuff. Read the tech blogs. Ask questions in the forums. Take advantage of free Genius Bar time. Only take the Apple certifications if you are interested in working in IT.

    I suppose you could but what r0k said is correct.

    The level of free online support available these days through Stack Overflow, iFixit, etc would make doing so a waste of money. The majority of prosumer users can figure out most repairs using iFixit guides.

    With that said, it is an essential piece of training if you're wanting to jump into a Mac tech position. ACMT certified techs typically jump to the front of the line when being considered for Mac admin/repair/tech positions.
