Computer Network Administration Comp TIA A+ Certification for Entry Level IT Professionals

CompTIA A+ Certification Training In DFWIf you’ve successfully completed high school, and don’t think a traditional four-year degree is right for you, the IT industry may be a great career choice. It will help you move beyond the jobs you worked in high school and into a potential career.

Some Dallas employers don’t look for a four-year degree when recruiting help desk and IT support technicians. They look for experience and knowledge and soft skills, such as exceptional communication and people skills.

Experience may include creating a personal blog, managing social media sites, or helping family members install and repair home computer systems. Demonstrating technical skills includes studying for and passing certification exams.

In the IT industry, when you have these certifications on your resume, it’s a quick way to give employers an understanding of your skill level. Recognized credentials tell employers they only have to spend time and money training you on proprietary equipment and software; you’ve already achieved all the essential training you need to start working immediately.

The CCI CompTIA A+ course is a great place to start. From there, you can take the required CompTIA exam with confidence and then go on to your job interview.

Graduates who successfully pass the CompTIA A+ exam hold the preferred qualifying credential for entry-level roles in technical support, PC repair and maintenance, and IT operations positions. The certificate demonstrates core competencies in:

  • Problem-solving and troubleshooting
  • Networking and operating systems, including install and connections
  • Mobile computing devices
  • Connecting people to the data they need to successfully perform job duties
  • Understanding personal and commercial computing devices and their operating systems

As you gain more work experience, taking advanced computer training to acquire more industry certifications beyond the Comp TIA A+ could lead to better jobs and more money down the road.
