EDUTAINMENT COURSE:

CompTIA A + 220-901

Interactive and entertaining talk-show style format presented by industry leading experts.
Overview

The CompTIA A+ certification is immensely popular and often essential to many entry-level positions in the IT world. CompTIA A+ training teaches students the fundamentals of computer hardware and networking. The course will build on your existing user-level knowledge and experience with the personal computer (PC) software and hardware to present fundamental skills and concepts that you will use on the job. In this course, you will acquire the essential skills and information you 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 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.

This international vendor-neutral certification requires that you pass two exams: CompTIA A+ Essentials Exam 220-901 and Practical Application Exam 220-902.
