New York Career Colleges: Computer Technician Degrees

The A+ certification exam was created to establish some consistency for everyone who works in the larger computer industry.

CompTIA A+ certification is an internationally recognized credential that proves that an individual has mastered a certain level of computer technician training. In other words, it lets employers and clients know that you have developed a thorough understanding of computer components, hardware, integrated software, basic networking, and other computer related areas.

Why Is A+ Certification so Important?

As the computer industry continued to expand during the 70s 80s and 90s, it became necessary to standardize certain areas so that people from different countries or disciplines could still interact with and understand one another. The A+ certification exam was created to establish some consistency for everyone who works in the larger computer industry. Of all the different qualifications, the A+ certification is probably the most universal and versatile.

How Long Does It Take to Earn A+ Certification?

Most courses are self-paced, so you can basically work at your own speed. But if you apply yourself, you could be certified in a matter of months. However, the A+ exam is supposed to be equivalent to 500 plus hours of on hands training, so to complete the necessary coursework for this particular credential in less than six months, you will really have to push yourself.

How Much Can One Make with A+ Certification?

It really depends oh which aspect of the computer industry you enter. Programmers, for example, tend to make more than data technicians. And quite often, professionals combined A+ certification with other credentials (a computer science degree, Microsoft training, HTML training, etc.) so this will also skew the numbers. But the computer industry is constantly growing. So your earning potential will only increase with every passing year.
