CompTIA A+ and N+ certification is essential for anyone entering the computer support field. In fact, this credential not only validates your skills in tasks such as installation, diagnostics, configuring, performing preventative maintenance, and basic networking, it is becoming a qualifying factor in the hiring process. If you are preparing yourself for a position as an IT Technician, Help Desk Support, or a variety of technical roles, getting certified will serve you well. With many companies now requiring A+ and N+ certification of their computer support technicians, obtaining the necessary A+ and N+ training is a critical first step towards a better job.

CECS has combined the A+ and the N+ certification to form the A+ PC Technician and Networking (N+) course. CECS is a member of CompTIA since 2004.
