  • While not required, it is recommended that students who attend our A+ bootcamp have at least 2 months of field and lab experience with computers.

    Please note that in addition, to many hours of lecture and labs, students will need to spend additional time in "self-study" (Boot camps are known for late night work) in order to pass your exams during the course. The focus of this class is on becoming certified, which means that you will be discussing practice exam questions as a part of your learning effort.

    People understand concepts best when they have done work that is related to the concepts. Our CompTIA A+ course focuses on getting into your brain the "roadmaps" you need to do the work. If you have sufficient IT background, this CompTIA A+ course will empower you to be able to pass the two A+ tests during the Boot Camp.
