About This Course
Time to roll up those sleeves and dive inside the personal computer! The Basic CompTIA A+ Certification Prep course teaches you about the hardware common to virtually every personal computer, including microprocessors, RAM, power supplies, motherboards, BIOS, CMOS, the expansion bus, and input/output devices. You’ll learn how things work, how to configure everything, and how to troubleshoot in real world environments. This course gives you the knowledge upon which you’ll base the rest of your CompTIA A+ certification studies for the exams that debuted in late 2009. Plus it helps you take that first step to becoming an excellent PC technician. So what are you waiting for?!?
Please note that if you received your Comp TIA A+ certification before 1/1/2011, you will be a lifetime credential holder not subject to credential renewals. If you achieve your certification after 1/1/2011, you will be subject to a CompTIA A+ renewal process every three years.
