CompTIA A+, A+ certification

Achieve your A+ certification in just four days – that’s 20% faster than traditional training. On this accelerated A+ course, you’ll study official CompTIA curriculum and sit A+ exams 220-1101 (Core 1) and 220-1102 (Core 2) onsite at the Firebrand Training Centre.

Developed by CompTIA, the A+ is a comprehensive vendor-neutral certification and an ideal starting point for your career in IT. If you’re already an IT professional, the CompTIA A+ certification will validate your existing skills.

On this accelerated A+ course, you’ll learn how to configure and support operating systems. You’ll also study the fundamentals of virtualisation, cloud computing, software troubleshooting and security.

Train at twice the speed on this official A+ course

Firebrand is an authorised CompTIA Platinum Partner. This means you’ll get access to experienced instructors and up-to-date course material, officially approved by CompTIA. During your accelerated course, you’ll also sit your CompTIA A+ exams.


Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online courses
  2. You'll be certified fast. With us, you’ll be trained in record time
  3. Our course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams**, accommodation* and meals*. No hidden extras.
  4. Pass the first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course the first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  5. You’ll learn more. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9 am – 5 pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day of quality learning time, with your instructor
  6. You’ll learn faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  7. You’ll be studying with the best. We’ve been named in the Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified over 135,000 professionals
