Course Description

The course will build on your existing user-level knowledge and experience with personal computer (PC) hardware to present fundamental skills and concepts that you will use on the job. In this course, you will acquire the essential skills and information you will need to install, configure, troubleshoot, upgrade, and perform preventive maintenance on PCs and mobile device hardware.

The CompTIA A+ (Exam 220-901) course can benefit you in two ways. Whether you work or plan to work in a mobile or corporate environment where you have a high level of face-to-face customer interaction, where client communication and client training are important, or in an environment with limited customer interaction and an emphasis on hardware activities, this course provides the background knowledge and skills you will require to be a successful A+ technician. It can also assist you if you are preparing to take the CompTIA A+ certification examination, 2016 objectives (exam number 220-901), in order to become a CompTIA A+ Certified Professional.

Comments about the Instructor
"Instructor is very knowledgeable. I appreciate his willingness to stop and answer questions. My only recommendation would be to reduce volume and slow down. I understand that we need to keep a pace; however."

Comments about the Courseware
"I really enjoyed this training because it taught me a lot about the technology I work with in more detail. I learned about the terminology of the specific processes or devices that I don't think about. I was really able to correlate what I learned to what I am able to interact with and what I am already exposed to in my job."
