I've been looking into the possibility of leaving my workplace (IT Technician) and taking a number of months (potentially just the summer) off to study and gain accreditations such as CompTIA A+, Network+, Security+ and MSCA's.
I would then gain employment closer to home (FAR shorter commute) and I'd expect to gain a higher salary because of said accreditations. (and the possibility of advancing through accreditations, through to MSCE's etc.)
Has anyone else had any experience of voluntarily leaving work to improve their status within an industry? (preferably IT)
Can it be done?
