Overview

Get an introduction to Information Technology in just 3 days on your accelerated CompTIA IT Fundamentals+ course. An ideal starting point if you’re looking to begin a career in the IT industry.

Your expert instructor will immerse you in ITF+ curriculum through our unique Lecture | Lab | Review learning technique. You’ll develop fundamental knowledge and skills required to identify and explain the basics of computing, IT infrastructure, application and software development, database fundamentals and security. You’ll get hands-on in this accelerated ITF+ course, learning the skills to:

  • Install software
  • Establish basic network connectivity
  • Identify computer components
  • Identify/prevent basic security risks
  • Explain troubleshooting theory and preventative maintenance of devices

As Firebrand is a CompTIA Platinum Partner, you'll benefit from the latest Official CompTIA course materials.

CompTIA ITF+ is the only pre-career certification that will help you understand your information technology abilities and decide if a career in IT is right for you.

After completing the ITF+ certification, if you're considering advancing into a career in IT, CompTIA A+ and Network+ are an ideal follow on.

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online ITF+ courses
  2. You'll be ITF+ certified in just 3 days. With us, you’ll be ITF+ trained in record time
  3. Our ITF+ course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass ITF+ first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course 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 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor

"Overall experience was great. Staff are friendly and helpful in all areas. Food is fantastic!"
Martin Whitton, STL Communications. (16/3/2020 (Monday) to 18/3/2020 (Wednesday))

"Training provided has been great. Excellent facilities too. One thing that could be improved upon is clarifying if students are entered into the exam before starting the course maybe in the confirmation email? as I was not told that I was not entered for the exam before the course and now have to do it at a later date. Other than that 10/10."
