    I need someone to recommend a online school where i can get a certificate for Computer Engineering/Hardware Specialist, Ive noticed that most are around 8 month programs, i already have serious experience in alot of computer subjects so i would like a certificate school that lets me obtain a certificate at my own pace.
    Any recommendations?

    Why not go for an industry certification instead of a college based one? You can obtain these at any pace you see fit. What is your goal in obtaining the certification?

    I agree, industry certs are standardized and will look better on your resume. Everybody knows what CompTIA's standards are, but they may not know what XYZ University's standards are.

    That said, if you have a degree and are looking to take courses from a school that align with certifications, some schools offer "certificate programs" that either (a) give classes that train you specifically to take one or more industry certifications, or (b) are "certificates" offered by the school that may or may not give you the same skills. So basically you can get an industry cert by taking a college course or by studying on your own or taking a boot-camp style seminar, or you can get a "certificate" from a college by taking a series of courses on a particular subject.

    TEKMAN Semper Fi!

    The Industrial Certifications hold more valuable than College certificates; especially in the Information Technology fields. Otherwise you have to get a Bachelor or Master degree, which is mostly basic requirement nowadays.

    Good luck with your decision.
