Currently the best options is in Network Security.

It is about the only area that can not easily be sent off shore.

Since you are a tchnician you must start with the basics , if you havent already . Start with the seven OSI layers and focus on layer 3 := Network Layer . How you give ips , why and how you give network masks ip and tcp sends datagrams / packets . Once you fully understand those go to understanding LAN related stuff. VLANs , segments , etc. Then to either security or WANs . Ask again when you get there .. Good luck !

Get your CCNA. Learn the basics(routing/switching). I would also lean towards the security side and learn multiple firewall technologies. Build networks at home and experiment.
