Smile Hi Newbie from Aus Here
Hi all, My name is Naomi, I'm 28 and have been using computers for around 12 years, Im a beginner, just starting out in the IT world. I have never worked in IT and have only just decided to hopefully study Cert III or IV in IT soon.

I am a volunteer for an animal rescue and have worked in customer service,hotel reception and as a Kennel Hand.

Just wanted to pop in and say hi, i really like this thread and looking for somewhere to chat and get loads of helpful info, I spent most of last night going through the "Best Freeware" thread until my eyeballs were hanging out.

please forgive me if I ever ask you a dumb question, I have SO much to learn.

Welcome Naomi and make yourself at home.

There is no such thing as a dumb question around here. Some are just much easier to answer than others.

Welcome to Tech Guy! You mentioned that you were "new" to the IT world. Well, if you're serious about learning more, then the A+ certification is a great starting point.

I'm new here too.

I have been working on computers and networks for almost 20 years in one form or another. Mostly desktop and network admin jobs.

About 10 years ago, while getting a Bachelor's degreein another field, I enrolled in the CISCO Engineering program to take the CCNA cert. (of course, I never took the test)

The thinking was this: I already have (!0 years ago) a basic understanding of PC repair, troubleshooting, etc.. The CCNA course gave me an invaluable insight into Networking that, looking back, I would never have received elsewhere.

Just a thought. Good Luck!
