A+ PC technician certification is a credential that the Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) offers for entry-level computer professionals. The A+ PC technician certification identifies skills that PC techs need to perform their jobs competently and successfully. A+ classes at Michigan Technology Services go beyond basic computer repair training.
In our opinion, to be a well rounded IT professional in the Detroit area you should understand the entire network infrastructure - from the bottom up. It would be hard to troubleshoot an issue on the network if all you understood was the Network Operating System, as often the problem lies at the physical level. It also would be interesting, to say the least, if you told your manager that you could add a new user to the network, or set up a Windows Server as a domain controller, but couldn't replace a network card or format a hard drive.
Here's another reason to consider A+ PC Tech certification. Many jobs today in the metro Detroit, MI area are at small and medium size companies, where there will be little division of labor - you'll be expected to do a variety of tasks. The better you are at these tasks, the better the odds are that you'll be the IT professional they keep around.
Michigan Technology Services will go beyond the objectives that CompTIA outlines. A sampling of what you will learn includes:
PC Configuration, Installation & Upgrading of PC Components, Diagnosis & Troubleshooting of PC Problems, Computer Repair, Preventive Maintenance and Safety, and Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 Configuration. Basic Windows networking will also be covered.
Our A+ Certification instructors help prepare you for the updated 220-801 and 220-802 CompTIA A+ Certification Exams. We can also help those still looking to pass the 2009 CompTIA Essentials and CompTIA A+ 220-702 IT Technician exams.
Many people combine Network+ Certification training with their A+ classes, as PCs are typically part of a larger client-server environment.
If you are a healthcare IT worker, or want to get a job in the growing heathcare industry, consider adding the new Healthcare IT Technician certification to your resume, along with A+ certification.
