There are a total of 2 specialist training sectors in the complete CompTIA A+ course, of which passes in both are needed to be considered A+ qualified. Once you start your CompTIA A+, you’ll be taught how to work in antistatic conditions and build and fix computers. You’ll also cover fault-finding and diagnostic techniques, both remotely and via direct access. You may also want to consider adding Network+ training to your A+ as it will give you the knowledge to become a networking engineer, which is where the bigger salaries are.
An important area that is sometimes not even considered by trainees mulling over a new direction is the issue of ‘training segmentation’. Basically, this means the way the course is divided up for delivery to you, which vastly changes the point you end up at. A release of your materials one stage at a time, as you complete each module is the normal way of receiving your courseware. While seeming sensible, you should consider these factors: What happens when you don’t complete each and every exam? And what if you find the order of the modules counter-intuitive? Due to no fault of yours, you may not meet the required timescales and not get all the study materials as a result.
To provide the maximum security and flexibility, it’s not unusual for students to insist that all study materials are posted to them in one go, with nothing held back. You can then decide at what speed and in which order you want to go.
Let’s face it: There really is no such thing as individual job security now; there’s only market or business security – a company will remove anyone whenever it suits their trade requirements. Security can now only exist through a swiftly growing marketplace, fuelled by a shortfall of trained staff. It’s this alone that creates just the right conditions for market-security – definitely a more pleasing situation.
Investigating the Information Technology (IT) sector, the recent e-Skills analysis demonstrated a more than 26 percent deficit in trained staff. To put it another way, this means that the UK can only locate three properly accredited workers for each four job positions existing currently. This glaring reality shows the requirement for more technically certified IT professionals around the UK. As the Information Technology market is growing at such a quick pace, it’s unlikely there’s any better sector worth considering as a retraining vehicle.

Each programme of learning really needs to work up to a widely recognised exam as an end-goal – not some little ‘in-house’ diploma – fit only for filing away and forgetting. All the major IT organisations like Microsoft, Cisco, Adobe or CompTIA each have globally acknowledged skills courses. These big-hitters will make sure you’re employable.
