The Computer Technology Industry Association(CompTIA) represents over 7,500 computer hardware and software manufacturers that certify information technology and service professionals through certificate exams such as A+. This program is designed to teach students the skills needed to become competitive in the Service and Technology field and prepare students for the CompTIA A+ certification examination.
