This varies wildly on your location, the employer and you. However, in
general, you should be able to find a MCDST-ish position w/o a college
degree.

I do not have a college degree in IT and I have never had an issue
finding a job in the IT field. Lasher is correct about many HR
departments in the field. They are clueless. I had a guy stop me in a
parking lot one time and beg me for an interview. Apparently the HR
department at my business said he was not qualified for the position.
The guy had a freaking Systems Engineer cert and the HR was focused the
BA degree he did not have. Care to guess the position we were looking
for? That's right; Junior Network Administrator. The guy was more than
qualified and I hired him that day.

Moral of the story: If you know you can do it. If you know you are
qualified; got for it. Go straight to the source. This guy did, and he
won.
