So just a brief update.
My college career is forthcoming, finally. The financial aid has finally come thru and I start a Computer Network Operations AAS Degree.
So the plan looks like this:
AAS Computer Network Operations w/Security for work purposes. I have been in IT for over 20 years but my skill set is outdated and my Certifications have expired.
After that is completed and gainful employment has been secured, I will start working on an MBA in History.
The interesting part is if I take long enough for the MBA, I will probably qualify for a senior pass and go to school for free.
