In this foundational CompTIA A+ training, Keith Barker, Knox Hutchinson, and Garth Schulte prepare learners to take the Core 220-1002 exam, which is one of two exams required to earn the CompTIA A+ certification.
While the first exam is mostly hardware and networking, the Core 220-1002 exam primarily covers software, security, troubleshooting, and operational procedures like backup, recovery, safety, and documentation.
CompTIA A+ is a common entry point into IT certification. That’s because the two A+ exams validate a wide range of hardware, software, security and even cloud topics. In this latest update to the Core curriculum, CompTIA broadened the A+ curriculum to include cloud services, advanced networking, and virtualization — essential skill sets from day one in most IT jobs.
With at least 6 to 12 months of desktop or hardware experience, IT professionals who complete this Core 220-1002 training will be better prepared to step into more senior support roles while laying the groundwork to step up as a junior system or network administrator.
For anyone who manages a help desk or IT team, this A+ training can be used for exam prep, on-boarding new support techs or sysadmins, or selectively curated for any training plan.
