Aplus Certified Technician

The CompTIA (Computer Technology Industry Association) certification program for information technology technicians is a really good way to get into the IT industry. A+ certification is entry level certification of IT skills, proving that you have a broad base of knowledge and competency in core hardware and operating system technologies including installation, configuration, diagnosing, preventative maintenance and basic networking.

The advantages of gaining A+ certification are great ��� this is an independent, vendor-neutral certification, so it does not limit the systems you can work on. It gives employers a measure of your capabilities, a basis for job status, and a guarantee of capability to give clients. Many companies using technology insist on certification for their IT technicians.

A+ certification also gives you a basis for further training and certification, because the skills and knowledge you gain are generic, and can be applied to a number of different situations. The A+ certificate is a pre-qualifier for other certification from CompTIA.

Salaries are good for Computer technicians, according to the US Department of Labor support staff median earnings are around the $35,000 mark, with systems administrators earning around $51,000. Promotion is fast, as most businesses are using IT networks, and demand for qualified and experienced technicians will increase rapidly during the nest ten years.
