Certification for Computer Technician/Networking..?

I know automatically this is something I want to go for. Theres a year long program at a nearby "trade school" that ends your year with an internship... What can I expect will be starting pay for this? What ALL can I expect to be able to learn and do from this? Theres also a nearby college that would let me transfer over and Get an AAS in Networking in another year.. How can this AAS degree compare the certificate...? I posted this yesterday but didn't get really anything helpful, so I thought I'd try again.. If anyone thinks I'd have better luck elsewhere, please let me know where... lol As for the school.. Again, its a trade school; Northwest Technical Institute. I would get my certification in under a year, then would have to complete a 160 hour internship. Then I could find a job. IF I wanted to further my education and turn that certificate into an associates degree, then this specific trade school has a partnership with the local community college.. I could, theoretically, transfer over, and in one more year have that associates.. I may wait to do that part... But yea... My specific questions are above... Thanks before hand! :D

I've always said that certs can get you an interview, but only personality and experience can get you the job. I think certs are important for the resume, but not for the job, and I have a lot of certs, including a CCIE.
