A+ Training Classes in Virginia

The CompTIA A+ is an introductory certification required for virtually all PC service technicians. Those who have passed the CompTIA A+ demonstrate a competent—though not necessarily sophisticated—aptitude for maintaining personal computers. Technicians must understand all essential technological elements of the PC, including hardware maintenance, networking, troubleshooting, and security. Given these broad and relatively simple requirements, the CompTIA A+ exam is not exclusively taken by IT professionals. Employers supervising positions that require PC competency—such as a help desk worker or a staffer at a service center—now frequently expect their employees to possess CompTIA A+ certification. If you plan on applying for any position that involves the servicing of a personal computer, CompTIA A+ certification is likely the first step in this process.

In order to receive CompTIA A+ certification, one must pass two separate exams. The first exam is commonly referred to as the A+ or Essentials exam. This test consists entirely of multiple choice questions; in some cases, more than one answer may be correct. The types of questions on the exam vary widely; while some may ask the reader to respond to a given troubleshooting scenario, others may require you to locate specific hardware or identify peripheral and networking components. In addition to the first exam, test takers must also choose a supplemental and specialized exam. Your chosen specialization will depend upon the type of profession you wish to enter. In both cases, it is likely not wise to take these examinations until you have earned at least 500 hours of experience working in an IT-related field.
