Making a change. Is it the right one?

I’m 36, I’ve driven trucks for 13 years. I’m sick of it. Tired of being treated like garbage, crap jobs and just being inside a truck, plus 14 hour days. So after a particularly enraging day at work I enrolled in a community college for Cyber Security / Digital Forensics.

I had my A+ and Net+ certification way back in 2004 as a stupid high school kid. Blew it off and went to work in the oilfield.

I’m so desperate for a change, I can almost taste it.

Please tell me what I’m looking at career wise with this associates degree I picked. I still have to meet with an advisor.

1. Are there any recommendations as to what I can study before hand (if I can’t get in this summer and have to wait for fall)

2. What additional certifications should I try to acquire to help my career?

Thanks guys. I’ve been anxious about this for a while. Due to workplace politics and of course working 70+ hours a week I can’t exactly find someone who knows what they’re talking about.
