Computer networks are crucial in almost every organization. Network administrators are responsible for the day-to-day operation of these networks. They organize, install, and support an organization’s computer systems, local area networks (LANs), wide area networks (WANs), network segments, intranets, and other data communication systems as necessary.

CompTIA A+

We offer you the most effective way to earn your CompTIA A+ certification. CompTIA A+ is the starting point for a career in IT. The exam covers maintenance of PCs, mobile devices, laptops, operating systems and printers. Two exams are necessary to be certified: exam 220-1001 and 220-1002.

CompTIA A+ 220-1001 covers the fundamentals of computer technology, installation and configuration of PCs, laptops and related hardware, and basic networking. CompTIA A+ 220-1002 covers the skills required to install and configure PC operating systems, as well as software troubleshooting.

This course includes access to a hands-on Practice-Lab which will allow candidates to have training in the practical application of the course concepts without having to buy any additional software and will prepare them for success on the certification exam.

Prerequisite(s): Students should have basic keyboarding and computer skills, and be comfortable navigating the internet.
