CBT Certification Training For CompTIA A Plus Explained

By Guest Author On December 7, 2010 Under Personal Development

The CompTIA A+ training program covers two modules of training; you’re qualified as A+ competent when you’ve achieved certifications for both specialist areas.

A+ computer training courses cover diagnostics and fault finding – both remote access and hands-on, as well as building, fixing, repairing and having knowledge of antistatic conditions.

If you would like to be a man or woman who is a member of a large organisation – in network support, add Network+ to your CompTIA A+, or follow the Microsoft route – MCP’s, MCSA or MCSE to give you a deeper understanding of the way networks work.

It’s essential to have authorised exam simulation and preparation programs included in the package you choose.

Because the majority of examination boards in IT are American, you’ll need to be used to the correct phraseology. It’s not sufficient merely answering any old technical questions – they have to be in the same format as the actual exams.

Ensure that you test your knowledge by doing tests and mock ups of exams before you take the actual exam.

The way in which your courseware is broken down for you can often be overlooked. In what way are your training elements sectioned? And in what sequence and at what speed is it delivered?

Students often think it makes sense (with a typical time scale of 1-3 years to achieve full certification,) for a training company to release one section at a time, as you pass each element. Although:

What would their reaction be if you find it difficult to do all the exams at the speed they required? Often the prescribed exam order won’t fit you as well as another different route may.

An ideal situation would be to have all the training materials delivered to you immediately; the entire package! This prevents any future issues from rising that will affect your capability of finishing.

We need to make this very clear: You have to get round-the-clock 24×7 instructor and mentor support. Later, you’ll kick yourself if you don’t follow this rule rigidly.

Don’t accept training that only supports students with a message system after 6-9pm in the evening and during weekends. Training schools will always try to hide the importance of this issue. The bottom line is – you need support when you need support – not at times when they find it cheaper to provide it.

Keep your eyes open for training schools that use several support centres across multiple time-zones. Every one of them needs to be seamlessly combined to provide a single interface and round-the-clock access, when you need it, with the minimum of hassle.

Always pick a training school that offers this level of study support. Because only round-the-clock 24×7 support delivers what is required.

We’re often asked why traditional degrees are now falling behind more commercial qualifications?

With an ever-increasing technical demand on resources, industry has of necessity moved to the specialised training only available through the vendors themselves – for example companies like Microsoft, CompTIA, CISCO and Adobe. This usually turns out to involve less time and financial outlay.

University courses, for example, clog up the training with vast amounts of background study – with much too broad a syllabus. Students are then held back from getting enough core and in-depth understanding on a specific area.

As long as an employer is aware what they’re looking for, then they just need to look for the particular skill-set required. Commercial syllabuses all have to conform to the same requirements and can’t change from one establishment to the next (in the way that degree courses can).
