Question from Anonymous
Is this course handson? Does this class lead to a certification or do I have to apply for seat at the exam after the class is complete? How fast, if this class does not lead to a certification, can I get a seat for the exam? Is the exam hands on?
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Yes, the course is hands-on. If you want to be certified, you need to take 2 exams for A+. The exams are $195 each. The exam is multiple choice, it's on a computer.
Answer from Mergen

Question from Donald C.
I’ve never worked in a formal IT environment but I have at the very least basic windows experience. I have a little programming knowledge, I’ve done more then my fair share of going through the computer trying to fix it (mostly with drivers and BIOS) and I’ve read through a small amount of textbooks covering the CompTIA a+. Is it worth the investment for someone with my level of knowledge to take this course? If not any recommendations for another course?
Answer from eugene d. Verified Student
Yes it is. You can learn it from a book, but can't answer any questions you might have.
Answer from Donald C. Verified Student
Thanks Eugene. I’ve spoken with a friend and he too thinks it’s possible.
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Donald! The CompTIA A+ course is a program for beginner students. You will learn things such as how to install and update device drivers. However, if you feel like this course is easy for you, you do have the option to switch over on the first day of class to CompTIA Network+. The CompTIA Network+ course is more advanced. Hope this helps!

Question from Anonymous
I have zero experience with computers. Is it possible to start this course with no knowledge and pass the a+ exam? Also, will I be able to change careers with just the a+ certification?
Answer from Jenn C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi! The school requires students to have Basic Computer Skills, a High school Diploma and G.E.D or Higher. In case you do not have a High School Diploma or G.E.D, you can reach out to them directly for options. Regarding changing careers after getting this certification, this class might help, but we'd suggest you also discuss with the school if the certification would be sufficient for the career change you have in mind. If you need help contacting them, please let us know!

Reviewed by Anonymous on 3/13/2019
Last two days of my class the online aspect was not working.. March 5th and 7th i was waiting for online class connection and nothing happened. I emailed the teacher and never received any response. Secondly the teacher would end class way before the time ended. Usually he'd end it by 8pm. In conclusion i feel as if i didn't really gain anything paying for and taking this course.. I've accepted the fact that i lost out on 500+ dollars and will not be using this service again for any further academic endeavors.

I am thoroughly enjoying a+ certification at Tia. The instructor is great and I couldn't ask for a better of students to learn with.

This class is not good for beginners. It goes through a ton of material very quickly, and it's not hands-on, so you really have to have some understanding of what you're looking at. There wasn't much time for questions, and the class size was large, not small as advertised. There were at least 20 people in my class.

Reviewed by Kevin J on 11/9/2013
The course was dynamic, covered a lot on what would be offered in the exam. The instructor was great, answered questions and was efficient. The facility was clean and up-to-date. I passed my exams the FIRST TIME not just on the study and practice materials, but also the confidence the instructor gave me. For the price, it's a very good investment to advance your current position or put you on a career path. Just make the commitment to study before AND after you pass the test! I recommend this course to those technically proficient or have basic to intermediate PC knowledge/experience and the Windows environment. Otherwise, this class might be too fast and furious. BTW - you don't have to be a Millennial to take it this course either. If you have a knack for fixing computers or "figuring out" how to make them work - take the course. Added value - TIA allows you to retake the course as much as you like, no charge, for one year. They are an authorized Pearson VUE testing site so you can schedule your exam there when you purchase your CompTIA voucher.
