A+ Course Pitmann

N417HANN417HAN ■□□□□□□□□□ Posts: 9Member ■□□□□□□□□□
I've just been for a demo for the CompTIA A+ Pitmann course but after having a long conversation with the course person I'm still a little confused.

The guy said there was no exams at the end only a pre-assesment and assessment.

It's the online course with 24hour support.

What's confusing me the most is I see other people talking about the a+ Course talking about exams.

Can anyone make sense if this and is there more than one a+ Course?

Thanks

    Why do you think you want a 'course' for the A+ certification? Some experience and a bit of study is how most make this entry-level cert happen?

    Save your money, buy a text or two and read up, download the objectives, and schedule the exams yourself. Most bootcamps for entry level certs are money-makers for those hosting them. The higher level cert bootcamps will only be of benefit if one has some experience.

    Most people are probably talking about taking the A+ at the end of coursework at WGU or another online university. There are many, many A+ courses out there but unless they have a deal with CompTIA you're going to have to pay for both exams yourself.

    Yup. You can just take them with self-study like many have successfully done! Good luck!

    Ok thanks, how much roughly does each exam cost. I know there's two of them and where are these best purchased from?

    $194 each from CompTIA but there are vouchers available from various providers which can lower the price to as low as $75 a pop.

    Google search "IT certification exam vouchers". I'm not trying to steer you to any particular vendor so I'm being kinda vague on purpose...hope you understand.

    For Vouchers look left <--- link is right in the menu options.

    Cost of the exam varies by country...just check COmptia or prometric site to get an idea.
