thanks, BWSKILLZ
I've been doing this for well over 15 years and have no schooling whatsoever and it was all self taught through various means.

I would say find shops who would just accept you but your going to need some experience regardless. Certificates and schooling means jack squat these days unless you can back it up. I can run circles around people with A+ Certification which is a fairly industry wide sought after certificate.

From there its just a matter of going where you might be interested.
