I would like to start a part time pc repair business from home. After having a look around on the internet i found the A+ certification course. Will this give me the skills and qualifications necessary to make a start? I realise that i will need to carry on studying for more but will this give me the basics?

Many Thanks

I am doing A+ and it will certainly give you the start you're after. Look at my thread:

As suggested on that thread its something to do on your own, get the materials you need and work at the pace you want and not one dictated by a classroom. Good luck, all the best

P.S I would think for a PC repair business A+ will be more than sufficient I think

Thanks Elrond
Where did you get your home study course from? I saw the course advertised for £175 for all the study guides and 10 cd roms. Is this about right?

I'm not actually doing a course as such, just learning from the book i showed you. It cost me £36.99 and is packed with loads of info it's also got a cd-rom with exam papers on and the entire book in PDF format plus it's got flash cards for revision. I was going to go through a company called Macmin, that was £199 in total. Where did you see this course?

The place i saw it was click here . I am not sure that i need the £175 course but their is one for £99. What do you think? Would the cd roms be useful ?

I know of one at £69 by:

I'm not sure if you'll need all the cd-roms. It's down to your own personal preference and how you want to learn
