If you're an entry-level computer technician or pursuing a new career in the IT industry, the CompTIA A+ Certification is designed for you. This course provides a comprehensive education of the hardware and software that you will encounter in the field as an IT professional. Not only is this certification highly regarded as foundational to a career in the industry, but it is also often required for employment. CompTIA A+ is recognized by the U.S. Department of Defense in Directive 8570 / 8140 and required by several IT vendors.
The range of technologies you will encounter as an IT professional is incredibly broad, and for this reason, we utilize a vendor-neutral approach in our courses. This approach means that we never promote one vendor or manufacturer over another, and we offer as many real-world examples as possible in the course material. Ultimately, the courses and certification will prepare you to support a variety of competing products and understand how to make them work together seamlessly to provide functional solutions for your clients.
The standard class is designed for people who are somewhat new to IT. In this two class track, time is dedicated to building the fundamental knowledge necessary to pass the exams.
The accelerated version of our course should only be taken by students who have significant IT experience and are looking to gain the certification to further their careers. In the accelerated class, the material for both exams is presented in a one-week period (instead of two weeks). The information and labs contain the same details as the standard course but are presented differently. With our accelerated course, labs and questions are addressed outside the classroom environment.
All CompTIA classes include access to web-based practice exams through CyberVista. Certification exams are rigorous and challenging. By studying after the class and leveraging these practice exams, you will significantly improve your chances of passing the exam on your first attempt. As this certification is likely your first experience with our testing style, we want to prepare you to succeed. This software provides the opportunity to test your knowledge in an environment that is very similar to the exam. Prep questions are positioned with the same logic and phrasing as the real exam.
If you excel in classes in which a subject matter expert leads the material, this method is best for you. Instructor-led training classes are live, hands-on, and offer an intense immersion into product features that correspond with the exam. This five-day interactive course is ideal for individuals who need to review a large amount of material in a short timeframe. ILT classes are also a good fit for learners who do not do well in a self-study environment. ONLC's classes are offered via a remote instructor. You can attend class from any of ONLC's 300+ locations for an interruption-free environment, or from the convenience of your own location. Review Setup Requirements
As an alternative to our live instructor-led training classes, these self-study, self-paced courses could be the right solution for seasoned professionals as well as those who are new to the industry. IT professionals who simply need to learn select topics can use CompTIA On-Demand classes to brush up on sections of a course without taking valuable time away from work. If you're new to the IT industry and need more time for both practice and review, CompTIA On-Demand allows you to learn new skills at your own pace over the period of a full year.
