I'd recommend going to college, your education will open more doors of opportunity and you'll be exposed to different areas of IT. There are IT jobs that are more focused on coding and less interactive and there are other jobs that are more interactive and engaging. You need to determine where you want to focus.
You didn't say what part of IT interests you but if you'r leaning toward security / cyber security, go for it! There are tremendous opportunities today and those will only continue to grow in the future.
Keep all of your options open and find the best fit for you. Best of luck!
Here's the thing: there are two kinds of job in IT. The first is professional level and has room for advancement. This level involves designing, implementing and testing code. It can lead to advancement as a project leader, program/department manager or CIO. The higher you go the more you get paid. This level requires a college degree.
The second level is involved with desktop maintenance, help-center phone calls and physical installation of equipment. It is possible to get one of these jobs with just a certificate or an AA degree, but you will probably need a connection to get hired.
Hope this helps.
