Windows 7: Computer hardware certifications

Computer hardware certifications

Just looking to get some info from more experienced people.
I am interested in a career dealing with computer hardware. I have little interest in programming, and any degree program (AFAIK) requires programming. I would like to stick with hardware as much as possible.

Is it viable to take a computer hardware certification course (like compTIA's course) versus getting a degree? I'm trying to weigh out my options, and would like some opinions.
