How to become a PC technician?
I want to be PC Technician. What classes would I have to take in college? I have already taken Fundamentals of IT Essentials. (PC Repair) Introduction to Networking and Telecommunications and Microsoft Office. What else would I need? Any info, suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
