Transitioning Careers, Advice and Resume Critique Needed

Hello, so as my username suggests I'm looking to transition from a career in craft brewing to a career in IT.
For a little background, I'm 24 years old and have been working as a brewer since graduating college last May. I worked at the same brewery every summer and on weekends while going to college. I have a bachelor's in Engineering Technology - Electrical, but since I planned on working there after college (they offered me the brewer position after the second summer working there), I didn't get an internship related to my degree (a decision I now regret). I picked up a minor in computer science as a sort of back-up plan because going into my senior year I realized I most enjoyed the few programming/IT classes I had to take for my bachelor's.
Fast-forward to now, I realize that a career in brewing craft beer is not something I want to continue to do. The hours are long and arduous, and the pay isn't great for someone with a bachelor's ($14/hr). Due to some changes in my personal life this summer, I'm looking to transition to IT by getting a help desk job ASAP. I've always been an IT/tech enthusiast (family tech guy, built my own desktop, blah blah blah) and been a regular listener to the Security Now podcast with Steve Gibson, so I've had a premium membership to and had been watching random videos that interested me for the better part of the last year. Since making the decision to change careers about a month ago, I've been studying for the A+ exam and plan on taking the tests by the beginning of October. At the beginning of August I told my current boss at the brewery I planned on leaving in September.
My question to all of you is would it look bad to hiring managers and HR when applying to places if I were to be unemployed for September while transitioning careers? I want to take a month off to study for the A+ and start studying for the CCENT. I study the A+ material during most of my free time, but the long work hours (12+ hours some days) while trying to keep my personal life intact worries me that I won't pass the A+ or have the time to search for other jobs. I'm pretty fed up with my current brewing job and want to get a help desk or IT job ASAP. Do I have okay chances of getting a help desk job with just my bachelor's, no professional IT experience, and no A+ cert yet? I want to start applying to places right now but if I probably won't get considered for jobs, I think my time would be better spent studying for A+ rather than looking at job boards and applying places? I am financially well off enough where being unemployed for a month or two would be no big deal for me. (Thanks Bitcoin.)
Here is my current resume, any critiques or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
*Edit: The brewery I work at is in a rural area, and I will be seeking jobs in a metropolitan area. I have a place to stay with some friends lined up for when I get a job, would it be worth it to put down their address in the city on my resume instead of my current address? Been a lurker on this sub and some other job subs for awhile, and I've seen that some hiring managers and HR don't even consider candidates who aren't already in the area, or at least within commuting distance?
