A+ Certification

Begin Your IT Career with A+ Certification

CompTIA A+ certification is the starting point for a career in IT. It is an industry-wide, globally recognized credential for today’s PC repair technicians and a marketable asset that employers seek when hiring.

HCC offers three courses that will prepare you for the CompTIA A+ certification exams. The courses are taken in the following sequence:

  • Fundamentals of PC Repair
  • PC Repair Level 1
  • PC Repair Level 2

In order to receive CompTIA A+ certification, you must pass two exams. CompTIA A+ 220-1001 covers PC hardware and peripherals, mobile device hardware, networking and troubleshooting hardware, and network connectivity issues. CompTIA A+ 220-1002 covers installing and configuring operating systems including Windows, iOS, Android, Apple OS X, and Linux. It also addresses security, the fundamentals of cloud computing, and operational procedures.
