CompTIA A+ – IT Computer Training Course for A+ Certification

Kilroy’s College

This course is ideal for people who want to learn more about network and servicing, and are interested in a future as an IT technician. Our A+ course is the starting point to a career in IT. CompTIA A+ certified IT workers have demonstrated knowledge of the fundamentals of computer hardware, a wide range of operating systems and the basics of networking. CompTIA A+ technicians work in organizations that have a multitude of hardware and software configurations and corresponding support needs. A+ Certification is a CompTIA-sponsored testing program that certifies the competency of entry-level (6 months’ experience) computer service technicians.

The certification covers a broad range of hardware and software technologies. Prepare to meet these opportunities by completing the new CompTIA A+: A Comprehensive Approach (Exam 220-901 & 220-902) courseware. Details include expanded cutting-edge content with coverage of mobile devices, new security lessons, increased operating system coverage, an introduction of fundamental Cloud concepts, and a greater emphasis on trouble-shooting.

The doorway to developing and expanding professional tech skills to meet in demand computer support needs is through the new CompTIA A+: A Comprehensive Approach (Exam 220-901 & 220-902) courseware. To earn the A+ certification, candidates must pass two exams:

  • CompTIA A+ Essentials Exam 220-901
  • CompTIA A+ Practical Application Exam 220-902.

CompTIA A+ Essentials measures the necessary competencies of an entry-level IT professional with a recommended 500 hours of hands-on experience in the lab or field. It tests for the fundamentals of computer technology, networking and security, as well as the communication skills and professionalism now required of all entry-level IT professionals. CompTIA A+ Practical Application is an extension of the knowledge and skills identified in CompTIA A+ Essentials, with more of a “hands-on” orientation focused on scenarios in which troubleshooting and tools must be applied to resolve problems.
