It's hard to find a home or office without a computer these days. The times are long gone by when computers were expensive equipment that can only be afforded by selected few. Affordable pricing has made it possible for an ordinary individual to own a PC and make maximum use of its efficiency for performing a variety of tasks. Computer is used for learning, working, and entertainment. The number of computer users is only growing by the day which makes the field of computer repairs a lucrative one for qualified computer technicians. Computer technician careers are expected to grow at 17% by 2022, which is 6% faster than average.

Step 1- Training

The road to become a successful computer technician begins with receiving proper training from a certified institute. You'll have to complete a formal training because computer or laptop users prefer to have their systems repaired from a well-trained computer technician rather than a rookie. There are so many options when it comes to receiving formal training: you can choose to have an associate degree, post-secondary classes, or an online certification program. The choice of your course usually depends on your budget, schedule, and needs.

If you're a working professional and want to have training while working, you can opt for a reputable online training course. No matter what type of training program you choose, make sure that it covers each and every aspect related with PC repairs which includes computer hardware, operating systems, software, drivers, troubleshooting, building, upgrading, repairing, and maintaining computer equipment.

2. Certification

The next step after training is having certification after appearing in certification exams. Doing well in these exams is very important because you can only have certification if you fare well in these exams. Although it may not be required for all jobs, certifications are a valid and obvious proof that you know your stuff and can open endless opportunities in this field. CompTIA A plus certification is undoubtedly one of the most valuable and widely recognized certifications for computer techies, which focuses on the Window operating system. MCSE computer techies are also sought after.

You can prepare for these certification exams by taking a certificate program. There's also another option in which you can ensure your original computer tech training program also prepares its graduates for certification exams of high-tech PC repairs.

Step 3. Experience

Achieving desired success in computer repairs industry revolves around real experience, do so not hesitate to get your hands dusty. You can start this process by building a computer, providing maintenance and repairs as you can for your family and friends who will appreciate you for it. Search for opportunities of paid/unpaid internships with local computer repair companies. Keep taking help of internet to learn about how you can tackle different PC issues. Chat with others from the same field, add them to your friend lists to continuously exchange ideas.

Coming to conclusion, working hard for hours and your ability to grasp things plays an important role in determining how fast you will be able to achieve success in this field.
