Ian elliott-1

Earners of the CompTIA A+ certification are proven problem solvers who are able to perform critical IT support tasks including device configuration, data backup and recovery, and operating system configuration. CompTIA A+ certified professionals have demonstrated baseline security skills for IT support roles and are able to detect and remove malware, address privacy concerns, and troubleshoot core service challenges.

The CompTIA A+ certification covers these areas:

  • Increased reliance on SaaS applications for remote work
  • More on troubleshooting and how to remotely diagnose and correct common software, hardware, or connectivity problems
  • Changing core technologies from cloud virtualization and IoT device security to data management and scripting
  • Multiple operating systems now encountered by technicians on a regular basis, including the major systems, their use cases, and how to keep them running properly
  • Reflects the changing nature of the job role, where many tasks are sent to specialized providers as certified personnel need to assess whether it’s best to fix something on site, or to save time and money by sending proprietary technologies directly to vendors

Congrats Ian! Thanks for your contribution to #TeamStandley!
