Computer Technician Training
How Long Will the Training Take?
The Computer Technician training program is designed to be completed in 3 months of full-time study. However, the online course format allows you to study on your own schedule and at your own pace, so your enrollment includes 6 months of program access in case you need extra time.
What Will I Be Learning?
The Career Step Computer Technician training program covers:
- Hardware and software
- Troubleshooting, repair, and maintenance
- Operating systems
- Operational procedures
- And more
The Computer Technician training program is specifically designed to prepare you for CompTIA A+ certification. The curriculum is built on the exam objectives published by CompTIA, and the midterm and final exams are even designed as mock exams that mirror the A+ exams so you can measure your readiness for the certification exams. With this specific preparation, you can be confident that you’re gaining the knowledge and skills needed to earn your CompTIA A+ certification immediately upon completion of the course. Two certification exam vouchers are also provided upon program completion to make it even easier to certify as soon as you graduate.
CompTIA A+ certification primarily focuses on Windows operating systems. In order to prepare you for this certification, the Career Step Computer Technician program does the same. The Computer Technician certification program can be completed on a Mac computer; however, all hands-on labs require access to a Windows operating system.
