Taking your first steps into an IT centric job can be a huge step for anyone. Many of those jobs are going to start you in a call center or support scenario and what better way to walk yourself right through that door than with a HDI-SCA certification? The easiest path to take is to utilize the programs at this very school! MATC offers an excellent Support Analyst class “ITSUP-140”, that will set you on the right path for achieving your certification. The class will prepare you for the exam through the various homework assignments and tests as well as the research you do on your own. Use the class to not only give yourself a baseline on what the exam fully entails, but to track what topics you know and could improve on. Taking the extra time to go over and study further will only make it that much easier when it comes to taking the certification exam and making sure you get it done in one shot. Set up a plan for yourself, take the course, study anything you aren’t 100% on and prepare yourself for the exam near the end of the course while your information is fresh in your mind, DO NOT WAIT! Tackling a certification exam is not a quick and easy process. Making a plan and sticking to it will go a long way when working towards passing a certification. Utilize any resource you can find, take the time to study, and do not rush yourself. A simple task list that you could set up for yourself might look something like this: 1....

This post is to help someone who is interested in becoming certified through HDI for a SCA certification. What is a HDI SCA certificate? It is a understanding of how to learn the critical steps required to effectively manage and prioritize incidents, reduce escalations, and master the essential customer service skills required to manage difficult customers. I will have steps for you to follow so that you can get an idea on where to find a testing center to what the cost of these things are. I started off by researching some websites for an outline of the certificate so that you can get a better feel of what will be on the exam. The online website thinkhdi.com offers a lot of information for free. This website is helpful because it gives you an outline of what you will expect to see on the exam. http://www.thinkhdi.com/education/courses/hdi-support-center-analyst.aspx The website globalknowledge.com is helpful as well this website shows a schedule that you can use to follow for the exam but there is a price if you would like to take the route. https://www.globalknowledge.com/us-en/course/86311/hdi-support-center-analyst/ Last website i thought had plenty of information about HDI SCA certification is nhlearningsoultions.com.

IT support is a field that is growing by leaps and bounds. In order to keep up with the demand for IT career support specialist I have tried to look at an innovative approach to making myself a marketable commodity in this ever-growing market. The first objective that I have set for myself is to identify market needs, the needs of the community and all other opportunities that present themselves. The first and most identifiable portal to identifying market needs is the MATC IT support webpage. This page presents a dynamic and ever-changing glimpse of how the MATC IT community is working vigilantly to stay abreast of market needs. I have a bit of a dilemma in terms of what my goals are in IT support as opposed to a more traditional response to the ever-changing job market. After reviewing a plethora of information available and what I have learned in school, the job market is changing especially in the IT support field looking for lifetime employment is not a truly progressive approach to the ever-changing job market. Lifetime employability though should be my objective. After listening to the professor speak, on the first day of class how I perceived what I heard is that there is a demand for jobs in a new paradigm. This new paradigm is that there is a time sensitive, or contract approach to fulfilling the needs of employers in the IT field.
