CompTIA On-Demand Learner Profiles
CompTIA On-Demand is a self-study training solution that was designed for two types of learners. First, CompTIA On-Demand is a great fit for individuals with considerable IT experience who don't need a traditional 5-day class to prepare for a CompTIA exam. They can pick and choose topics to make the most effective use of their time. Second, CompTIA On-Demand is perfect for highly-motivated individuals who are new to a technology and need to space their learning over a period of weeks or months. These learners can take their time and repeat sections as needed until they master the new concepts.

Instructor-led CompTIA Server+ Certification Training
This self-study CompTIA® Server+® course (equivalent to our 5-day instructor-led course) builds on your existing professional experience with personal computer hardware support to present the next tier of skills and concepts that you will use on the job when administering any type of network server. If your job duties include server troubleshooting, installation, or maintenance, or if you are preparing for any type of network server-related career, it provides the primary knowledge and skills you will require to be successful. The CompTIA® Server+® (Exam SK0-004) course can also benefit you if you are preparing to take the CompTIA Server+ examination (Exam SK0-004).
Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to perform the duties of a server administrator.

Retaking an Exam
Retake exams are at your own cost. A voucher is good for a single exam attempt. If you do not pass, you will need to purchase another voucher to retake that exam. ONLC does not provide free "retake vouchers." Therefore, be sure to do the necessary preparation before scheduling your exam.
To ensure your success in your course you should have 18 to 24 months of hands-on experience with installation, configuration, diagnosis, and troubleshooting of PC hardware and network operating system issues.
