It seems I was in much the same situation as you - working in aircraft engine overhaul, married, 3 kids. Difference was I was made redundant.
As part of my redundancy package I took an MCSE course.
Found it a bit of a struggle to get through quickly (needing a job and income a.s.a.p). Qualified but....... there's just no jobs in my area (S.E Wales) and what there are are worse paid than my old job. If you can get into the service sector i.e NHS, Police, MOD etc you seem to have a better chance of progressing.
Me? I went back into aircraft and my new found talents are absolutely worthless as I just use Word & Excel. Lol. Still, I've got letters after my name.
