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.

About the Online CompTIA A+ Certification Training Class

Our free online A+ training class educates on the maintenance of operating systems, PCs, mobile devices, laptops and printers—crucial skills that every IT professional needs in order to work within the industry. Even if you aren’t interested in working in IT, the skills taught in our training course can help you save a lot of money in electronic device repairs…a definite plus! Specifically, the course covers the fundamentals of computer technology, basic networking, installation and configuration of PCs, laptops and related hardware, as well as configuring common features for mobile operation systems Android and Apple iOS.

What’s so great about CompTIA A+? To start, it is a highly credible certification that carries a great deal of trust globally. Organizations such as the U.S. Department of Defense, Dell, Intel and Lenovo recognize this entry-level certification as validation that an employee is competent to fulfill the roles of a support tech, service technician and support specialist. Additionally, those who possess this certification are more likely to receive higher salaries (for example, on average, certified professionals make five to 15% more than their non-certified counterparts in the USA).

About the CompTIA A+ Certification Exam

In order to earn the official certification for CompTIA A+, you must take two required exams. Test-takers must score a 675/900 on the first exam, and 700/900 on the second exam in order to earn the A+ certifications. Each test is approximately 90 minutes. The exam may be taken at any Pearson VUE testing center globally.

Certifications are valid for three years. Reestablishing your certification status requires certain guidelines be met. For more information on maintaining the CompTIA A+ certification, visit CompTIA’s website

Career Value of the A+ Certification

The CompTIA A+ certification is typically recognized as a certification for those looking to get their foot in the door of IT. Jobs consistent with this certification are typically call center, help desk and computer repair type jobs. In a large organization or enterprise, the A+ certification would have one answering and responding to general computer help tickets, doing basic computer maintenance, or performing basic account unlock functions. This is typically the “starting point” for most careers in general IT and allows you to get a better idea on what you may want to specialize in. Certain jobs may require additional training or certifications, particularly for vendor specific hardware or applications (i.e. Dell Hardware, Microsoft Office Specialist, etc.). Jobs in smaller companies may have you stretching your limits and actually performing basic systems administrator type functions. Generally, in larger environments you will be more specialized and restricted in what you can do before you “escalate” the issue. In a smaller environment you will be responsible for more types of equipment; however, the total amount of equipment will be less.
