About the CompTIA A+ certification
CompTIA A+ is the only place to get started with a career in IT and with COMMSUPPORT you will get more real world practical tasks than anywhere else.
We offer training that will get you the certification, but more importantly, our training will set you apart from other when it comes to interviews and in the job its self.
As an industry-standard qualification, the CompTIA A+ is the gold standard certification for entry-level candidates. Designed to build a basic knowledge of both hardware and software, the CompTIA A+ is the ideal way to get started in the IT industry and is often cited as the first step in a long and successful career in IT.
CompTIA certifications are completely vendor neutral, meaning candidates learn about hardware and software standards as a whole, instead of just focusing on one technology or one set of devices from a single provider.
Made up of two exams, the 220-901 and the 220-902, the CompTIA A+ demonstrates competency as a Computer Technician. With the first exam covering hardware and peripherals, students will learn about:
- PC hardware
- Essential peripherals and connection types
- Mobile device hardware
- Troubleshooting hardware and network connectivity issues
Once confident and comfortable with hardware essentials, the second exam validates software competency, teaching students how to install and configure a range of Operating Systems, including Windows, iOS, Android, Apple OS X and Linux.
With the most recent exam update, CompTIA included provisions for cloud computing and operational procedures, ensuring that candidates are comfortable working with the latest technologies in an organisational framework.
