If you're an entry-level computer technician or are looking to start a career in the IT industry, CompTIA A+ Certification is designed for you. This training 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 for a career in IT, A+ is often required for employment and it is an approved baseline certification for the U.S. Department of Defense Directive 8570 / 8140.
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 no one vendor or manufacturer is promoted 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.
ONLC offers several training options so you can choose the learning experience that’s best for your style, schedule and budget. For direct guidance contact an Education Advisor via our Chat function or by calling 1-800-288-8221 (M-F, 8a-6p Eastern).
Instructor-led training (ILT) classes are live, hands-on, interactive training that's led and supported by a professional trainer. For most, interactive hands-on training that's led and supported by a professional instructor is the most effective and efficient way to learn. ILT classes may be attended at any of ONLC's more than 300 training centers OR from your own location . All students connect to the instructor virtually.
On-Demand courses are self-study and self-paced. You do the course using your own equipment from your own location. Once purchased, you have 24/7 access to the course content for up to 6 months.
An individual looking to prep for A+ certification AND an additional CompTIA certification can save on all the training with our CompTIA bundles.
ONLC can provide CompTIA A+ group training to help training coordinators successfully upskill their teams while maintaining their budgets.
