CompTIA A+ Technician Course & Boot Camp


Course Description

SecureNinja's CompTIA A+ training and certification boot camp in Washington, DC prepares students with the latest skills needed by today’s computer support professionals. Upon class completion CompTIA A+ will confirm a technician’s ability to perform tasks such as installation, configuration, diagnosing, preventive maintenance and basic networking.  A+ is an international, vendor-neutral certification recognized by major hardware and software vendors, distributors and resellers.  

To receive CompTIA A+ certification, a candidate must pass two exams. The first exam is CompTIA A+ 220-1001 Certification Exam. The CompTIA A+ 220-1001 examination measures necessary competencies for an entry-level IT professional with the equivalent knowledge of at least 12 months of hands-on experience in the lab, or in the field. 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/forensics, properly and safely diagnose, resolve and document common hardware and software issues while applying troubleshooting skills. Successful candidates will also provide appropriate customer support; understand the basics of virtualization, desktop imaging, and deployment.

The second exam is CompTIA A+ 220-1002 which covers installing and configuring operating systems such as Windows, IOS, Android, Apple OS X, and Linux. Students also learn about the fundamentals of cloud computing and operational procedures. Acquiring these skills are essential for anyone who is pursuing a path into any professional IT role. With these skills, users will be able to safely diagnose and resolve issues by applying common troubleshooting skills.

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+ exam objectives 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.
