The BTEC would probably be a good choice. So Are you looking to do pc support in a large company?

well TBH my perfect job would be showing up to work and having a list of places / companies or homes, that have problems maybe new hardrive needs replacing new motherboard etc, and going to them 1 by 1 and completing the job,

but until i find my ideal job anything in the region of repairing pcs will do.

edit: how does this look http://www.onlinelearningnetwork.com/aplus_details.htm

40 for 1 years access to course material seems too good to be true to me,

does n e 1 else no where to find A+ available to buy online ?
