Course description

CompTIA A+ (220-1001 & 220-1002 Core Series) Official Exams

When you’re looking to start or boost a career in IT, it all comes down to one thing – validating your skills, and one of the best and most widely recognised way to do this is with official CompTIA A+ certification. Holding this certification will prove your understanding of common hardware and software used in business, and that you have the skills needed to support the complex IT infrastructure firms rely on to keep moving every day. It’s a powerful credential that can only enhance your career.

What Is The CompTIA A+ Exam?

In order to gain a full CompTIA A+ certification you will need to obtain a pass in the 220-1001 and 220-1002 exams which form this exam entry package. The 220-1001 exam tests your understanding of hardware and peripherals, and various troubleshooting and connectivity issues, while the 220-1002 exam will validate your ability to install and configure a variety of operating systems and test your understanding of security issues and cloud computing fundamentals. Each exam is a maximum of 90 questions and is 90 minutes long.
