yes equipment and electro/mechanical instruments. I did a 3 year college diploma in Electrical Engineering Technology and just trying to see what's out there and how everything relates. we did a bit of networking, nothing crazy mostly telecomm. I focused in automation and trying to learn C++ because we started with C and I kind of grasp it. what's really crazy my prof's were telling me they changed the curriculum to include more computer engineering material because that's the way the world is going. Everything and anything has some form of circuity in it.
By the way what do you do? and how did you get there?
currently I do Electrical Calibrations and repair. It's fun but a lot of the guys getting ready to retire are telling us how important IT is especially when dealing with anything electronic now a days.
Worked out well for me thus far. Finished my Bachelors in Cyber Security and Information Assurance in Sep. Starting the Masters for the same in Dec. Two of the classes from my undergrad will count towards the Masters. From 9 classes to 7.How did WGU work out for ya'll?

Brothers, we got this.
They have been pretty good. I’m currently working for one of the larger Cybersecurity vendors, and currently on the 4th (and final) interview with a large telecom next week.How were your job prospects after you graduated
Dope shytThey have been pretty good. I’m currently working for one of the larger Cybersecurity vendors, and currently on the 4th (and final) interview with a large telecom next week.
Honestly, I am mostly self taught. I only decided to pursue the degrees because I started a family, and knowing that the deck is stacked against me (being black in this field) I wanted to ensure success.
Glad I made the decision to do it though.
Check this link. Bare in mind, acloudguru is a cloud training company and theyre tryna sell you their courses, so dont get caught up in their marketing.Does anyone have any knowledge on AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner and AWS Solutions Architect certs? From my understanding, the CCP cert is entry level and the Solutions Architect is a step above.
Can anyone speak on the job responsibilities, salary, etc. The VA has a pilot program with different schools around the country, that offer a 16 week program in a few different tech areas, and the goal is to be able to get the cert(s) at the end of it. Some of these schools even assist with landing a job.
Thanks for the response. Im starting from square 1 with ITCheck this link. Bare in mind, acloudguru is the cloud training company and theyre tryna sell you their courses, so dont get caught up in their marketing.
Solution architect certs aim to give a broad view of the AWS ecosystem. It goes into some depth on each service, but it more so challenges your understanding of how each service fits together to accomplish a specific goal in the most clinical and cost effective way.
As far as job responsibilities, the solution architect role is actually an advanced role in earnest, because on an enterprise level, you need to have strong exposure/skills in different IT domains: coding/software design, databases, networking, data security.
Also the role differs per company. In some companies, it can be a devops centric role which entails working with developers in provisioning the AWS infrastructure(services). For some it can be IT-compliance focused, just making sure the developers aren't designing systems that can get flagged during an IT audit. It can also range from very hands-on work to high level design

To even be accepted in the program, they want you to pass a technical video interview, and they suggested to google some definitions/talking points as well as look over Professor Messer's youtube channel.
Aside from this link and professor messer's channel, do you have any other recommendations for how to study some basic concepts with IT?
