Overview

If participants are getting ready for a career as an entry-level information technology (IT) professional or computer service technician, the CompTIA® A+® course is the first step in their preparation. The course will build on participants existing user-level knowledge and experience with personal computer (PC) software and hardware to present fundamental skills and concepts that participants will use on the job. In this course, participants will acquire the essential skills and information participants will need to install, configure, optimize, troubleshoot, repair, upgrade, and perform preventive maintenance on PCs, digital devices, and operating systems.

The CompTIA A+ course can benefit participants in two ways. Whether they work or plan to work in a mobile or corporate environment where they 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 participants will require to be a successful A+ technician. It can also assist participants if participants are preparing to take the CompTIA A+ certification examinations, 2016 objectives (exam numbers 220-901 and 220-902), in order to become a CompTIA A+ Certified Professional.
