    Ok, I don't really know much about this field, but can Installing, Configuring, and Administering things be considered education?

    Really good to know!!

    Well those are the name of the classes that I took at a college, but in my editing attempts to post on here I didn't do a very good job at replacing the school name with a generic name, nor did I replace my main schooling name. Oh well :)

    Why not list the Comptia A+, and Network+ certifications in your "Certifications" list instead of in your "Education" list.

    The reason I don't have them listed in my certifications is I don't have the certs, only took the classes for them as part of the degree program I was taking at the time.
