Training CompTIA

Training goals dlearning

CompTIA A+ is the preferred qualifying credential for technical support and IT operational roles. A+ certified professionals identify issues and problem-solve more effectively than those without certification. In order to receive the CompTIA A+ certification, candidates must pass two exams: Core 1 220-1001 & Core 2 220-1002. Successful candidates will have the knowledge required to:

  • Assemble components based on customer requirements
  • Install, configure and maintain devices, PCs and software for end users
  • Understand the basics of networking and security, including forensics
  • Apply troubleshooting skills to diagnose, resolve and document common hardware and software issues
  • Provide appropriate customer support
  • Understand the basics of virtualization, desktop imaging and deployment

CompTIA CompTIA A+ Prep Course prepares you for the A+ certification exams based on the 2019 objectives exams Core 1 220-1001 & Core 2 220-1002.

Each participant in an authorized training CompTIA A+ Prep Course held in Compendium CE will receive a free 220-1001 & 220-1002 CompTIA A+ Certification Exam vouchers.
