The Intermediate CompTIA A+ Certification Prep course picks up where the Basic course left off and plunges you head-first into Windows. You learn how to install, organize, maintain, and troubleshoot three different versions of Windows. You'll examine and compare the features and structures of Windows XP, Vista, and 7. Toward the end of the course you'll get a deeper understanding of how we use virtualization and virtual machines in modern networks. Plus you'll learn about printers, from the various technologies in use to installing and troubleshooting. This course takes you through the second of three steps you need to become both a highly-competent PC tech and a CompTIA A+ certified technician, using the 801 and 802 competencies.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.
