This interactive online course with a Live instructor is designed to be delivered for entry level individuals looking to start a new career in IT. This fundamental program begins with a brief introduction to PC basics; secondly, the instructor will focus on the conceptual and practical aspects of both CompTIA A+ 220-1001 and 220-1002 exam objectives and lastly, the instructor will integrate the program with job readiness skills to prepare participants to seek or obtain employment, and to keep their jobs once they are hired.
In addition, the program provides three Project Help consultations throughout the course for students that are grading 70% or below. The sessions will be available on a first come, first serve basis.
A+ is the preferred qualifying credential for technical support and IT operational roles. It is about much more than PC repair. Participants will learn to build a computer from scratch, learn all speeds, and specifications of computer hardware. Learn about the software that is housed within a computer system such as Operating Systems, and system utilities used to troubleshoot, backup and maintain a computer system stability.
