CompTIA A+ Exam

The doorway to developing and expanding professional tech skills to meet in demand computer support needs is through the new CompTIA A+: A Comprehensive Approach (Exam 220-901 & 220-902) courseware. The content of the two exams as described by CompTIA. To earn the A+ certification, candidates must pass two exams:

  • CompTIA A+ Essentials Exam 220-901
  • CompTIA A+ Practical Application Exam 220-902.

CompTIA A+ Essentials measures the necessary competencies of an entry-level IT professional with a recommended 500 hours of hands-on experience in the lab or field. It tests for the fundamentals of computer technology, networking and security, as well as the communication skills and professionalism now required of all entry-level IT professionals.

CompTIA A+ Practical Application is an extension of the knowledge and skills identified in CompTIA A+ Essentials, with more of a "hands-on" orientation focused on scenarios in which troubleshooting and tools must be applied to resolve problems.
