I'm a newbie, as I just joined this community. I live in the New York Metro area.
I'm interested in exploring IT related fields and found a program in Networking offered through a local community college. I realize these are different areas, however, I've noticed that they're often lumped together. The program is for a certificate in networking, haven't really found an information technology certificate programs.
I know I'd prefer to do campus learning as opposed to online learning, noticed many online programs aren't highly regarded, as they seem to be funneled through the same for-profit schools.
Anyway, my question is: would I be better off continuing to search for an IT related certificate program or should I take a look at this networking certificate and see what I can make of it?
There's a guy who work at my company, he has a certificate in Networking, but seems to do a lot of IT/help desk support tasks.
