Hello everyone, I had a college formation in programming and networking about 8 years ago. Right after that I moved and I find myself working in a totally different industry. I want to come back and even finish my BA in IT. I do not know where to start to refresh myself and get up to date. I'm starting in January (my BA). Where do I start? I welcome any suggestion. Thank you for taking the time to answer.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can get an associates degree in IT from many places. But generally more involved degrees like MIS will take 4 years to complete (depending on the school).

Hope this helps!

Adding Comptia certifications, such as A+, Network+, ans Security+ will help you out. They are not that expensive, though you DO have to know your stuff to pass them. check here:

    I'm not sure getting a BA is going to make you marketable. Network Engineers and Network Administrators are in demand now. Have you considered specialized training in building and maintaining networks that can lead to a certification and quick employment instead of a diploma? Having a four year degree is really good for you long term.
