To earn your official A+ certification from CompTIA, you will need to study the training courses and achieve a passing mark for both compulsory exams. These two exams include the 220-1001 exam which should be completed first before starting the 220-1002 exam.

  • CompTIA A+ 220-1002 - The second exam covers installing and configuring operating systems, expanded security, software troubleshooting and operational procedures.  

To prepare you for your exam, we provide interactive quizzes after each module and a mock exam at the end of your course to ensure you’re fully prepared for the real thing. Once you’ve passed with at least 85%, you’ll be ready to book your exam as a private candidate. To make life easier, we can help you find an appropriate exam centre and give you all the information you need to secure your place.
