Not Your Grandfather’s CompTIA A+

Comptia A+

When most of us think of A+ we immediately think – “oh yeah – that is the cert where you learn to build and support a PC.” That is certainly what I thought when I was thrilled to receive the teaching assignment for CBT Nuggets. Boy – have times changed! First of all – it is no longer one exam – it is two. There is 220-901 and 220-902. And most importantly, the topics really do hit the most important in our industry today. Check out some of the themes I was thrilled to teach in this exciting new cert:

  • Blade servers
  • TCP/IP
  • WiFi
  • WiFi Security
  • End System Design
  • Mobile devices and BYOD
  • Virtualization
  • Cloud Computing
  • Network Security
  • Linux
  • Mac
  • Windows
  • Troubleshooting. Troubleshooting, and More Troubleshooting
  • Communication Skills for IT

This certification is so impressive, and a better first step into the industry than ever before!
