Hello There,

This looks like an excellent forum and a great place for knowledge!

I am 27, I run a national remote/on-site repair business for 3 years now. Before that I was a senior IT adviser for a presidential campaign (please no political battles, it was an opportunity and I took it). Before that, I was doing web development and ran a web hosting company that was acquired. So I believe I have a unique interesting background that will be a good foundation for legal/civil computer forensics. My weaknesses are I only have some college, no degree, because I got to busy with my businesses.

I have seen the suggestion to do the ISFCE CCE Boot Camp which looks like the best entrance program to CF. But what should I do after that certification, and what should I do in the meantime while I am saving up to take the certification and software in the ways of learning? I want to learn as much as I can on my own before I even hit the certifications.

Unfortunately there are so many candidates with a degree; and because of that so many companies that can require a degree, that you are at a distinct disadvantage by not having a degree.

Honestly I would recommend that you take the time to get at least an AS (as a minimum) before you pursue a bunch of certifications and find you are unemployable.
