CompTIA A+ 2019 is the industry standard for starting your career in IT

CompTIA A+ is the preferred qualifying credential for technical support and IT operational roles. A+ certified professionals identify issues and problem-solve more effectively than those without certification. In order to receive the CompTIA A+ certification, candidates must pass two exams: 220-1001 & 220-1002 Core Series.


Successful candidates will have the knowledge required to:

  • Assemble components based on customer requirements

  • Install, configure and maintain devices, PCs and software for end users

  • Understand the basics of networking and security, including forensics

  • Apply troubleshooting skills to diagnose, resolve and document common hardware and software issues

  • Provide appropriate customer support

  • Understand the basics of virtualization, desktop imaging and deployment

CompTIA A+ is accredited by ANSI as meeting the ISO/IEC 17024 standard and is approved by U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to fulfill Directive 8570.01-M requirements.

No prior IT experience is necessary.
