My son is starting tech school next week and taking Computer Maintenance & Repair. Does anyone have any good words of advice for him. Any other courses he should take? What would be the one most important thing that he could do to be successful in the computer field?? Thanks.

To start with a basic of eerything related to computer, that include some hardware, some network of computer, some software, Office tools and Internet is enough. Once he gets aware of all these technologies and in his friend circle, he will automatically learn himself, what he should proceed further.

Computer is a very vast field of study just like medicine. It depends on your son now that what he like in computers. Computer Sciences have following sub-branches from which he can choose. 1) Computer Networks 2) Hardware 3) Software Engineering 4) Computer Programming 5) Web Designing / Graphic Designing 6) Databases From the above please ask him what is his taste. According to that, he must do a certification in the required field. By just taking computer courses and classes, one does not become a computer professional. To become one, you must get a certification. Certification is obtained by giving online examinations and the degree comes from USA or UK. For example, if your son chooses Computer Networks then he can do MCSE (Microsoft Certified System Engineer) or CCNA (Cisco Certifed Network Administrator). Please ask your computer colleges there about this.
