Considering CompTIA Retraining

There are four specialist areas of training in a full CompTIA A+ program; you're thought of as an A+ achiever once you've passed your exams for half of them. This is why the majority of training establishments only teach 2 specialised areas. In fact to carry out a job effectively, you'll need the information on each subject as many jobs will ask for an understanding of all four areas. You don't have to complete all 4 certifications, although it would seem prudent that you take tutorials in all 4 subjects.

Courses in A+ computer training are about fault finding and diagnosing - both remote access and hands-on, in addition to building computers and repairing them and operating in antistatic conditions. You might also choose to think about adding the CompTIA Network+ training as you can then also look after networks of computers, which means greater employment benefits.

Watch out that all qualifications you're considering doing are commercially relevant and are the most recent versions. 'In-house' certificates are often meaningless. If your certification doesn't come from a company like Microsoft, Adobe, Cisco or CompTIA, then chances are it won't be commercially viable - because it won't give an employer any directly-useable skills.

A knowledgeable and practiced consultant (in contrast with a salesperson) will talk through your current experience level and abilities. There is no other way of calculating your starting point for training. With a bit of commercial experience or qualifications, you may find that your starting point is not the same as someone new to the industry. Starting with a basic PC skills module first will sometimes be the most effective way to start into your computer studies, depending on your skill level at the moment.

To be in the best situation you would have every piece of your study pack sent to your home before you even start; the entire thing! Thus avoiding any future problems that could impede your ability to finish.
