    Introduction

    In order to receive CompTIA A+ certification a candidate must pass two exams. The first exam is CompTIA A+ Essentials, exam number 220-701. The CompTIA A+ Essentials examination measures necessary competencies for an entry-level IT professional with the equivalent knowledge of at least 500 hours of hands-on experience in the lab or field. Successful candidates will have the knowledge required to understand the fundamentals of computer technology, networking, and security, and will have the skills required to identify hardware, peripheral, networking, and security components. Successful candidates will understand the basic functionality of the operating system and basic troubleshooting methodology, practice proper safety procedures, and will effectively interact with customers and peers.

    CompTIA A+ is ISO 17024 Accredited (Personnel Certification Accreditation) and, as such, undergoes regular reviews and updates to the exam objectives. The following CompTIA A+ Essentials objectives reflect the subject areas in the 2009 Edition of the exam and result from subject matter expert workshops and industry-wide survey results regarding the skills and knowledge required of an entry-level IT professional.

    The percentages in this document represent the relative importance of the subject areas (domains) in the associated body of knowledge, and together establish the foundation of an entry-level IT professional.

    Who should complete this course?
    • IT Technician, Enterprise Technician, PC Technician.
    • Desktop Support Technician, Field Technician, PC Support Specialist.
    • People considering a career as a PC Technician.

    Self Paced CBT


    Our Computer Based Training is divided into courses, which are divided into units. Each unit consists of a well-defined set of learning objectives, a series of interactions that teach the stated objectives, and a means for evaluating whether the learning objectives have been met.



    Instructional Design Principles


    Our courses are based on sound principles from research in instructional design, adult learning, and information processing. We believe that for training to be effective, the learner must view the training as meaningful and relevant. The learner must be engaged as an active participant.



    Instructor-Led Training


    This combines both the convenience and affordability of computer-based training with the effectiveness of a traditional classroom setting. The instructors featured in our multi-media CD's are not only certified in their area of expertise, but also have years of real world experience and are subject matter experts in their fields.   Our courses feature video modules of our instructors teaching the information directly to you.   This creates a personal learning experience and simulates the benefits of classroom learning- without leaving the comfort of your home.

    Full motion video


    Each class is presented in full motion video allowing you to see the steps, hear the explanations, and perform the tasks which includes our interactive hands-on training simulations, students will learn from real-world scenarios taught by our expert instructor.



    Navigation and Controls


    Our self-paced elearning courseware is designed to give you the freedom to proceed through each training class at your own pace.  Courses are arranged in sections, with navigation and controls that allow you to fast forward, skip, go back, stop, restart, and control the pace of your training.  You can stop at any time and easily find where you left off in your training.



    Practice Tests and Exam Simulators


    We incorporate practice tests and certification exam simulators into all of our courseware.  The flexibility of our practice tests and exam simulators allow you to apply your knowledge and test what you have learned, ensuring you have the skills and confidence needed to pass your exams - the first time.
