The hardware is easy as hell, maybe some of the older windows OS stuff you'd need to look at, but I think A+ certification is probably fairly easy for a computer/tech hobbyist to challenge. (Sitting through the course would be a waste of time if you already know a fair bit)

Theres also Cisco certification for networking. (CCENT, CCNA, CCPRO-something or other,) These would give you certification to manage/setup cisco networks

Possible jobs: comp shop, helpdesk @ a college, IT place, network person, pc repair, start your own business?
Honestly tho.. Look at the A+ course outline and its so outdated unless they have done some recent revisions.
