Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. this week introduced its "CompTIA A+ Training Course," an introductory course designed for aspiring information technology professionals seeking to acquire entry-level A+ certification.
The CompTIA A+ certification is the entry point for new IT professionals. The exams target on the maintenance of personal computers, mobile devices, laptops, operating systems, and printers.
Infinite Skills' CompTIA A+ 220-801 (2012 Objectives) Training Course provides a detailed and comprehensive guide to the first of two exams for A+ certification, which is focused on computer hardware components, networking, and printing.
Course author Mark Long is a trainer, consultant, and technical writer, specializing in information technology. He has worked in IT for more than 30 years, with 18 years at BellSouth Telecommunications where he was as a trainer, developer, network architect and administrator, and data security specialist. Long has also worked for large companies and organizations including the US Air Force, Rockwell International, and Mercedes-Benz, among others.
Following a course introduction and an overview of A+ certification, Long begins with operational procedures, explaining the basics of computer safety, power use, documentation, and more. He continues with a chapter on personal computer hardware, including BIOS, the motherboard, expansion slots, and other basics.
The course then covers computer memory and storage, as Long teaches basic concepts like RAM, internal drives, optical drives, storage devices, and more, before moving on to cover working with connectors, cables, and pins.
Other chapters target the A+ exam content on networking, including various kinds of networks and the protocols that allow information exchange, and network devices, such as modems and routers.
The course closes with a look at working with various kinds of printers and some basics of working with people in the technology industry.
"In this course, we'll go through all the objectives of this exam," Long explains. "We'll talk about various aspects of this information so that you can understand, use, and in some cases memorize, crucial exam content."
