Level 2 IT Essentials 1 (A+) PC Hardware & Software


This predominantly practical course builds the skills you need to repair, configure and upgrade personal computers. On completion you will be able to sit the CompTIA A+ exam, recognised by employers nationwide. As West Herts College is a CompTIA academy, you will study the latest syllabus needed to be successful in the A+ exam. It also builds theoretical and practical knowledge in networking in order to progress to advanced courses such as Cisco CCNA, which is studied as part of the Cisco Networking Academy.

I have now been offered a job in the Vinci Construction IT department. I gained the confidence to apply for this role by passing the IT Essentials course and then the Comptia A+.
