K Alliance Releases CompTIA A+ 2009 Certification Training Videos

Online training videos give A+ exam candidates an edge as they prepare for the new certification exams

TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- K Alliance, a provider of online IT training videos, has recently released an A+ online training video that covers the 2009 Edition of the A+ certification. In the ever-changing world of IT, certification programs such as the entry-level A+ certification program from CompTIA must constantly be upgraded to reflect the latest technological innovations. As certification programs evolve, so too must the training programs that prepare exam candidates for certification. In 2009, CompTIA revamped the A+ certification by releasing the A+ 2009 Edition. A+ training must evolve with technology along with the latest changes implemented by the CompTIA A+ certification program.

According to Gregg Burnett, VP of Business Development from K Alliance, Countrywide Training will be bundling these high-quality self-study videos with their A+ boot camp classes. "We are pleased to be able to help Countrywide Training extend its coverage while also being able to deliver consistent training to A+ trainees preparing for the new exams."

CompTIA's Web site states that the CompTIA A+ 2009 Edition is the latest version of A+ certification. In order to get certified, A+ certification candidates must pass two exams: CompTIA A+ Essentials and A+ Practical Application. Each exam is a timed, 90-minute exam consisting of 100 questions that measure the candidate's skills in computer technology fundamentals, networking, security, troubleshooting, communications, professionalism, and problem-solving. A "bridge" exam is available for CompTIA A+ 2006 Edition credential holders wanting to upgrade their A+ certifications to the latest edition.

CompTIA, like many IT certification authorities, periodically updates its certification programs to reflect changing technologies. While the 2006 Edition of A+ certification is by no means obsolete and is still relevant, the 2009 Edition validates additional technical skills. One of the key differences between the A+ 2006 and A+ 2009 Editions is the second exam. With the 2006 Edition, candidates had to pass an A+ Essentials exam and then choose to specialize as an IT Technician, a Remote Support Technician, or a Depot Technician. Each technician role had its own specific A+ certification exam that had to be passed along with the A+ Essentials exam. With the 2009 Edition, the second exam, Practical Application, measures the A+ candidates' abilities in applying their A+ Essentials skills as they troubleshoot and solve computer problems.

Now that the A+ certification program actively measures exam candidates' ability to put their knowledge to practical use, trainees benefit from online videos that stress these practical skills. K Alliance has long stressed the importance of "real world" applications of technology in its IT certification training videos.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
