This CompTIA A+ certification 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 A+ credential, along with CompTIA Network+ certification and CompTIA Security+ certification, has no formal prerequisites and serves as the perfect launching page to an IT career in help desk, desktop support specialist, system support, or operations.

ILT classes may be attended from any of ONLC's hundreds of training centers OR from your own location . ONLC's training rooms are outfitted with equipment and provide an interruption-free space for you to concentrate on learning. All class participants connect to the online instructor.

On-Demand Training (self-study)

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.
