Course Description

Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family.”
– Kofi Annan

Information Technology is a burgeoning industry—and it shouldn’t be limited to those who have the money to take training classes so they can achieve industry certifications. No longer are there obstacles to learning—fundamental IT learning shouldn’t be high-priced. That’s why we provide the CompTIA A+ training class, completely free. Anyone can begin their IT career here, for free, forever. This is the way it should be.

Beginning a Career in IT Starts Here
CompTIA A+ is the best class to start with if you are looking to begin a career in IT. A+ provides a fundamental knowledge that is necessary to move up or advance in the field. This is the perfect opportunity to figure out whether or not you’re interested in getting further trained in the industry. The fundamentals taught in this class will prepare you with what you need to know to make an informed decision on which direction you would like to go, in IT, next. In other words, you’ll know enough after this class to know what a career in Systems Administration is and how it is different from Network Administration, and how and why those are different from a career in Cyber Security. Plus, if you have been considering entering the field, but you aren’t sure if it is right for you, this class will definitely help you to figure that out.
