CompTIA A+

This is an entry-level information technology (IT) professional or personal computer (PC) service technician course that builds on your existing user-level knowledge and experience with personal computer software and hardware. In this course, you will acquire the essential skills and information you will need to install, upgrade, repair, configure, troubleshoot, optimize, and perform preventative maintenance of basic personal computer hardware and operating systems.

The CompTIA A+ Certification course can benefit you in two ways. Whether you work or plan to work in a mobile or corporate environment where you have a high level of face-to-face customer interaction, where client communication and client training are important, or in an environment with limited customer interaction and an emphasis on hardware activities, this course provides the background knowledge and skills you will require to be a successful A+ technician. It can also assist you if you are preparing to take the CompTIA A+ certification examinations, objectives (Exams 220-901 and 220-902), in order to become a CompTIA A+ Certified Professional.
