Becoming a computer technician is a great point of entry into the IT field, and computer hardware certifications will help demonstrate your knowledge and competency in maintaining computers, mobile devices, printers and more. These top 5 computer hardware certs can help you get your IT career off the ground.
To a certain extent, the title of this article is something of a misnomer. In the interests of increased specificity, it might be more appropriate to add the words “general” or “mostly vendor-neutral,” although we do include a credential from Apple in this list that focuses exclusively on Apple hardware. And in fact, it’s possible to view some certifications from hardware vendors such as HP, Dell, Cisco, Juniper, Fortinet and so forth as hardware focused, at and beyond the entry level. Thus, as you peruse this guide, don’t forget that there are lots of other options from which you can choose if you’re interested in demonstrating your knowledge and abilities with some (or any) particular vendor’s products and devices.
