Course Timeline Note:

With the latest revision of the CompTIA A+ exams (Core 1 and Core 2), a significant amount of new content has been added.

To meet our 5-day course window, we will be using CompTIA’s alternate (Theory-only) 5-day timeline. Chapter assessment practise questions will be included during the course, and students will need to use hands-on labs and video clips outside of class hours. The hands-on lab environment will be available for 90 days following the class.
