I was thinking about doing some study at Tafe. It's like a uni but no high school score is needed. (OP) I'm not sure what to study or if Tafe is even for me..

I was thinking about doing a M$ cert - A company told me it's a good idea but I'm not sure..

hmmm

Hi,
If I could start again I'd train to be a carpenter or joiner or electician or painter/decorator! Not what most people set out to do I know but....
If as a skilled tradesperson you do a good job , on time, on budget you'll not want for work. The tradespeople in my village don't need to advertise but are ALWAYS fully booked.
Without being rude, loads of people want to study "media" or IT. But who are they going to go to to get work done around their apartment/house. Also when their carreers take off they won't have the time so they will need skilled, reliable and honest tradespeople. In the UK at the new terminal for Heathrow Airport - electricians are paid at least £50,000 a year ($98,000).
A strange suggestion from me I'm sure but it's something I wish I'd done.

Most companies would hire a person with an MCSA / MCSE if you are looking to go into the I.T / Networking side.

There are Microsoft Office Professional certification (MOP, maybe MOS now), though I don't know many people with that and got a good job.

I would also suggest at least try for the MCSA, as most if not all of the exams will go towards the MCSE.

Question is, where do you want to go today?

;)

Not sure what Tafe is, but I enrolled into a technical school, which actually gives you hands-on training. I will be finishing with a Bacholer's degree in May. Maybe something to consider too.

Me? I think we've talked about this before... if not, I went to ECPI Technical College (http://www.ecpitech.edu). They serve Richmond and Virginia Beach in VA. I think they have a campus in SC.
