Course Information

CompTIA A+ Training Overview

CompTIA A+ is an entry-level certification that aids those who are new to the IT industry and wish to obtain a job role in the tech discipline. By the end of this five-day course, it is expected that candidates will have a full understanding of the technologies found in today’s IT environments, including mobile devices, traditional devices, and operating systems. The CompTIA A+ certification is a course that can be attended by beginners, as it provides a thorough introduction to the skills required to enter into the IT industry. CompTIA A+ training acts as a stepping stone towards more advanced qualifications, such as CompTIA Network+, Server+, and Security+.

During the five day training course, delegates will learn how to maintain PC’s, mobile devices, operating systems, and printers. Furthermore, the training establishes best practices in troubleshooting, security, and networking across a number of devices. This provides a foundational knowledge that is required to enter into an IT career.  Acquiring a high level of understanding of all the topics covered in this course will ensure that delegates will be able to use key computer software and hardware components.

This course is covered in detail by our experienced trainers. Their aim is to supply delegates with all they need to know to pass the associated examination. By passing this exam, it will be indicated that delegates have the ability to practically apply what they have learned, and this will subsequently enable candidates to progress in the field of IT and pursue relevant professions, e.g. IT Technician, Field Service Technician, or IT Support Administrator. The course is fully accredited by CompTIA.

CompTIA is a non-profit association that provides professional training courses of differing difficulty levels. Broadly, these certifications are designed to allow delegates to be able to engage with a range of IT software, and allow entry into, or advancement within, the IT industry.

During five days of classroom based training, delegates will be provided with a delegate pack, an experienced trainer, refreshments, and a certificate.
The CompTIA A+ certification is valid for three years after passing the exam. The exam can be retaken, or you can participate in a number of activities and training programs, to renew your certification with the CompTIA Continuing Education (CE) Program. The CE Program works on a point-based system, and so at least 20 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) need to be collected within three years to renew your CompTIA A+ qualification.
