    Course Details


    If you are getting ready for a career as an entry-level information technology (IT) professional or computer service technician, the CompTIA® A+® (Exam 220-902) course is one of the first steps in your preparation. The course will build on your existing user-level knowledge and experience with personal computer (PC) software and operating systems to present fundamental skills and concepts that you will use on the job.

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 application, operating system, and security-related activities, this course provides the background knowledge and skills you will require to be a successful A+ technician.
