internship or schooling

so i started taking courses with a school and they help u get certifications they pay for the certifications and everything and help u find a job and after u pay them back. but i started taking the classes and they suck. i started looking at IT companies in my area and thats when i found a company near me that is just starting out and looking for someone to grow with the company. they seem happy to teach me . i feel like real life experience is more important than certifications for resumes but what would you say? i feel like doing an internship full time and then doing my night classes will be too much for me to handle so if you had to pick which one would you go with?

Depends what the internship is.

Experience and Certifications are equally important, but to a point. I would never hire someone into an InfoSec role without at least a Security+, regardless of their experience. However, you don’t *NEED* a school to get certifications. Every cert I’ve gotten I got with a month or two of free time and a $30 book, including the CISSP.
