The Intermediate CompTIA A+ Certification Prep course picks up where the Basic course left off, taking you right into the PC. You'll start with detailed information on installing and configuring hard drives and removable drives, and then spend the rest of the course knee-deep in Windows. You'll learn about the operating system from installation to operations, maintenance to troubleshooting. The course finishes with an in-depth look into installing, configuring, maintaining, and troubleshooting printers. This course takes you through the second of the three steps you need to become both a highly competent PC tech and a CompTIA A+ certified technician, 2009 style.
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.
This course is currently in revision. Expected release: April 2014
