CompTIA A+ Certification is the standard in the Tech Industry
The aim of the A+ certification is to demonstrate a basic knowledge of supporting micro-computers. The certification is achieved by taking two computer-based multiple-choice examinations. The A+ certification is widely recognized in the computer industry, and significantly improves a technician's ability to secure and keep employment.
The course consists of two modules - a hardware module which covers the physical components of a PC, their configuration, function and installation in addition to providing a solid understanding of operating systems and the use of boot files, virtual memory, device drivers, system errors and general system troubleshooting.
The second module covers Windows Desktop and Server operating systems in more detail, adding to the core module's foundations to ensure a proper understanding of configuration and boot files as well as covering the proper set-up and installation of devices to run in a Windows environment. The exam also includes a number of questions regarding system optimization including memory management, caching and power management.
