Computer Training - CompTIA

By Scott Edwards

In the modern world, support workers who can fix PC's and give daily advice to users are essential in all areas of the economy.As industry is becoming more and more dependent on technology, it also becomes more and more dependent on skilled and qualified IT professionals.

We recommend that our students take advice from an industry expert before settling on a particular training course, so they can be sure that the content of their learning package fits the skills of the job they're seeking.

There are four specialised areas of training in the full CompTIA A+ syllabus, of which you need to pass two to gain A+ competency. But only studying two of the four specialities will leave gaps in your knowledge. so unlike most other training providers, we give you all four. This will give you the edge in the working environment.

We believe you should be given the complete package. By learning all four sections, you can choose one subject at exam time in addition to the Essentials exam, as you only need to pass two for certification.

Move Into IT With A+ Computer Training...

For those students embarking on IT studies and exams for the first time, it's often a good idea to break yourself in gently, by working on a user skills course first. This can be built into an A+ package.

Courses in A+ computer training cover fault-finding and diagnostics - both remote access and hands-on, in addition to building, fixing, repairing and working in antistatic conditions.

If you add Network+ training to your A+, you'll also have the ability to look after networks, which means you'll be able to command a higher salary.

A typical IT support worker tends to be very hands-on and practical.For this reason, traditional teaching in classrooms with books and manuals can be very hard going. If this describes you, look for learning programmes that are on-screen and interactive.

Find a course where you'll receive a library of CD's and DVD Rom's - you'll learn by watching video tutorials and demonstrations, and then have the opportunity to practice your skills in interactive labs. You should also make sure you test your depth of understanding in quizzes and practice in exam environments before you take the real thing.

Support for students is a must - look for a package that includes 24/7 direct access to instructors, as anything less will frustrate you and hamper your progress. Avoid message systems with advisors calling back in office hours.
