Welcome to ONLC Training Centers

CompTIA A+ Certification Training Class with Exam Vouchers

If you're an entry-level computer technician or are looking to start a career in the IT industry, CompTIA A+ Certification training classes are designed for you. This training provides a comprehensive education of the hardware and software that you will encounter in the field as an IT professional. Not only is this certification highly regarded as foundational for a career in IT, A+ is often required for employment and it is an approved baseline certification for the U.S. Department of Defense Directive 8570 / 8140.

The range of technologies you will encounter as an IT professional is incredibly broad, and for this reason, we utilize a vendor-neutral approach in our courses. This approach means no one vendor or manufacturer is promoted over another, and we offer as many real-world examples as possible in the course material. Ultimately, the courses and certification will prepare you to support a variety of competing products and understand how to make them work together seamlessly to provide functional solutions for your clients.

ONLC offers several training options so you can choose the learning experience that’s best for your style, schedule and budget. For direct guidance contact an Education Advisor via our Chat function or by calling 1-800-288-8221 (weekdays).

Instructor-led Training (ILT)

Instructor-led training (ILT) classes are live, hands-on, interactive training that's led and supported by a online trainer. For most, interactive hands-on training that's led and supported by a professional instructor is the most effective and efficient way to learn. ILT classes may be attended from any of ONLC's hundreds of training centers OR from your own location . ONLC's training rooms are outfitted with equipment and provide an interruption-free space for you to concentrate on learning. All class participants connect to the online instructor.

  • Standard A+ Track (ILT): This track is designed for people who are somewhat new to the field of Information Technology (IT). In this two-class track, time is dedicated to building the fundamental knowledge necessary to pass the authorized exams. Each course is five-days in duration. You'll be able to focus completely on the first course and take the first exam before tackling the second course and corresponding exam. Alternatively, if you only need to focus on skills presented in one of the courses for a job need, you can take just that course.

  • Accelerated A+ Track (ILT): The accelerated course should only be taken by students who already have significant IT experience and are looking to gain this certification to further their careers. In the accelerated class, the material for both exams is presented in a single 5-day class instead of the 10 days in the standard track. The information and labs contain the same details as the standard course, but are presented differently.
Self-study, self-paced training

On-Demand Training (self-study)

On-Demand courses are self-study and self-paced. You do the course using your own equipment from your own location. Once purchased, you have 24/7 access to the course content for up to 6 months.

  • A+ On-Demand Track: This track is self-directed and lets you prep for A+ certification on your own time. It includes hours of videos, hands-on labs and knowledge checks. If you're new to IT and need more time for practice and review, A+ On-Demand lets you do the course 24/7 for up to six months. You can repeat sections as often as you'd like. Those already working in IT who only need to learn select topics can use the A+ On-Demand course to focus just on those skills and quickly brush up on others without taking time off from work.
