CompTIA A+ Training: Best Way to Train for the Certification

CompTIA A+ Training: Best Way to Train for the Certification

February 5, 2020 in Corporate IT Training, CompTIA / by Centriq Training

New class structure separates training for the two CompTIA A+ exams and adds hands-on components for less experienced IT pros.

With the introduction of the A+ 1000 series in 2019, CompTIA significantly expanded the content covered by the two exams required to obtain the A+ certification.  (What is the A+ certification?) There is a greater emphasis on Cloud computing, virtualization, Internet of Things, cybersecurity and networking than in the previous 900 series.  There is also additional content covering IT support roles, operational procedure competency, problem-solving as well as data management, IT security and Cloud technology.  The result is that the two certification exams are more challenging than ever before – especially if you are new to your technology career. That’s why Centriq has recently revised its CompTIA A+ training curriculum to give students a better understanding of the material and a greater chance of obtaining their A+ certification.

What SharePoint is Used for & Why it’s the Center of the O365 Universe

 

We are all creatures of habit. And the biggest business habit is email. A form of technology invented in 1971 is too often the primary tool to communicate and collaborate in today’s business environment. Think about that. We have stretched that outdated technology to work in a way it was not initially intended. We make folders. We make subfolders. We scroll through endless conversations in the all-too-often vain attempt to find attachments. We need a productivity-boosting, headache-ending upgrade.

Enter SharePoint – the center of the O365 universe.
