CompTIA A+ Training

CompTIA A+ certification is an entry-level credential that validates the knowledge of computer service technicians who have at least 6 months of experience. Major hardware and software vendors, distributors and resellers accept CompTIA A+ as the standard in foundation-level, vendor-neutral certification for service technicians.

The exams cover a broad range of hardware and software technologies, but are not bound to any vendor-specific products. The skills and knowledge measured by the CompTIA A+ exams were derived from an industry-wide and worldwide job task analysis. According to CompTIA, more than 500,000 individuals have obtained CompTIA A+ certification to date.

Earning a CompTIA certification proves that you have a broad base of knowledge and competency in core hardware and operating system technologies including installation, configuration, diagnosing, preventive maintenance and basic computer networking.
