Answer: The answer to your question depends heavily upon your career goals. Do you want to do IT (computer installation, preventative maintenance, networking, security and troubleshooting) or electronics (circuit and computer troubleshooting, installation, maintenance, and programming)? If your answer is IT, then an A+ certification would be my first certification if I were you. If you want to do electronics then a certification in Electronics would be the first thing you should do.

Good Luck!
