    Look at the job listings for help desk in your area, what certifications do they want?

    So you think A+ or a degree is the only way to secure a help desk position ?

    Is that what the listings name as a requirement? Some places allow you to take the course while employed there on condition that you will pass the test.

    Yep, pretty much every job ad asks for previous experience, it doesn't mean they will get someone with it... Go ahead and apply to those too

    Most help desk positions ask for A+ for sure and at times Network+, so i would go for those two. You could also maybe invest in an HDI certification if money is not an issue. Many will ask for experience on top of the certifications so experience is essential to landing the position. If you want to focus on the next MTA you could take the MTA 98-366 Networking Fundamentals.
