Overview

CompTIA™ is the Computing Technology Industry Association, and CompTIA™ A+ certification program is the industry standard for validating the skills expected of entry-level computer technicians. CompTIA™ A+ certification opens the door to an exciting career in computer technology, and ed2go's online program makes training convenient, interactive, and enjoyable.

The CompTIA™ A+ program will prepare you for two CompTIA™ A+ certification exams: CompTIA A+ Exam 220-801 and CompTIA A+ Exam 220-802. Topics covered in the program include motherboards, memory, processors, video, storage media and devices, printers, operating systems, networking, virtualization, mobile devices, security, and more. You will have the opportunity to practice on online lab systems. Gaining CompTIA™ A+ certification assures employers and computer owners that a PC technician has the requisite knowledge to build, upgrade, optimize, troubleshoot, and repair personal computer (PC) systems.

This program will allow you to practice in virtual interactive lab environments.

This online program will also prepare you to take your A+ exams; however, the exams and exam vouchers are not offered as a part of the program. It will be your responsibility to set up exam dates and pay for exam fees independent of this online program.

This online certificate program is offered in partnership with major colleges, universities, and other accredited education providers.

We now offer the CompTIA™ A+ program with an exam voucher included!
