According to Polachi, Inc., information technology sector will show significant growth. The U.S. Bureau of Labor states, IT – related occupations, technical and professional certifications are growing more popular and increasingly important. Over 90 percent of IT workers are employed outside the IT industry sectors such as healthcare, manufacturing, or financial services. LearnKey is excited to provide a series of training videos for CompTIA’s A+ industry certification, created for those entering the IT industry. It’s recognized that anyone in the IT industry needs the base foundation provided in CompTIA’s A+ certification hardware/software training.

CompTIA has rapidly set the standard for computer technicians. CompTIA’s certifications (including their flagship product, A+) were recognized by the American National Standards Institute. A+ is meant to ascertain an individual’s overall ability to handle computers. It is specifically meant to be vendor nonspecific, so an A+ certified technician can be counted on to be able to handle any computer whether it be an Apple, a PC, or Linux, and should be competent in dealing with the various hardware configurations for each. In short, it is the benchmark for proving technical competency, and it is a must have for anyone seeking a career in computer repair, maintenance, or administration.

Together with A+ expert, Mike Meyers; LearnKey is excited to provide a series of training videos designed to pass the 2009 exams.
