UK Teen Already Earning his IT Wings

by Janet Pinkerton | Mar 26, 2012

Lewis Shoulders is still in his teens, yet he's already a respected IT network technician in the United Kingdom, flying round the world, working on luxury yachts, rubbing shoulders with celebrities.

By age 18, he had earned his CompTIA A+ and CompTIA Network+ certifications, using the UK training company Zenos to train for CompTIA Network+ and set up job interviews before landing a job with Livewire Connections. The Surrey, England-based provider of maritime IT networks and entertainment systems uses mobile satellite technology to connect each client’s vessel to broadband voice and data services.

The Livewire Communications job requires an in-depth understanding of computers and networks, "so CompTIA certifications are really valuable here," says Shoulders. "In fact, the company looks for people with these skills."
