Getting back into the Help Desk Support Tech Career

By clintonroane341 ·
Although I wouldn't call myself a "Jack of All Trades" I do have over 10 years experience with computers, although not all of it as a computer professional. I have worked as Help Desk Support, and a Systems Operator (computer operator). I am familiar with some Unix/Linux systems administrative duties, have done some minor programming in C and Visual Basic, and have also designed and implemented a database using MS Access for the Federal Government. However my experience has not been consistant and I want to get back into the field. I am 43 years of age without a Certification. Does my experience count for anything or do I have to get certified?
I can't afford the courses right now which most are too expensive. I currently trying to teach myself Oracle. How do I go about this? I have had several interviews but no job (as there are many with more years of experience and knowledge than me). An entry level position would be ideal for me. Any suggestions?
