The A+ certification is an entry-level certification. You should have a basic understanding of computers, including the following skills, before taking this course.
• Installing and running programs.
• Using basic productivity software including word processing applications.
• Saving files created by common applications.
• Browsing the Internet.

To obtain the certification, you must pass two exams:
• The A+ Essentials exam (220-901) covers basic operating system and hardware concepts.
• The A+ Practical Application exam (220-902) covers details on installing and troubleshooting hardware and configuring devices for use by the operating system.
This course covers content for the A+ Practical Application exam. You should study the material in the Essentials course before taking this course. If possible, we recommend that you study for both exams before taking either exam.

In addition to covering everything you need to know for the A+ Practical Application exam, this course has been designed to help you:
• Install and upgrade internal computer and laptop components.
• Troubleshoot computer components.
• Install, partition, and format hard disk storage.
• Configure a small office/home office (SOHO) network.
• Configure system security settings.
• Troubleshoot system startup.
• Back up and recover a computer and user data.

Course Description

CompTIA A+ 220-901 covers the fundamentals of computer technology, installation and configuration of PCs, laptops and related hardware, and basic networking.
An in-depth study of personal computer hardware and operating systems, this course prepares students for the CompTIA A+ Certification exams . Focus is on identification, installation, configuration, and troubleshooting field replaceable components. Topics include microprocessors, memory, BIOS and CMOS, expansion bus, motherboards, power supplies, USB drives, hard drives, SCSI devices, CD and DVD media, video, sound, portable PCs, printers, networks, the Internet, and Windows 2K and UNIX/Linux operating systems. Read more on the A+ Certification on the website.

CompTIA A+ 220-902 covers the skills required to install and configure PC operating systems, as well as configuring common features (e.g. network connectivity and email) for mobile operating systems Android and Apple iOS.
The CompTIA A+ Practical Application exam measures the necessary competencies for an entry-level IT professional who has hands-on experience in the lab or the field. Successful candidates will have the skills required to install, configure, upgrade, and maintain PC workstations, the Windows OS and SOHO networks. The successful candidate will use troubleshooting techniques and tools to resolve PC, OS, and network connectivity issues and implement security practices. Job titles in some organizations which are descriptive of the role of this individual may be: Enterprise technician, IT administrator, field service technician, PC or Support technician. Ideally, the CompTIA A+ Practical Application candidate has already passed the CompTIA A+ Essentials examination.

Adding/Dropping a course
You may use CLASS-Web on the Internet to drop or add a course from the school home page at . CLASS-Web is an online system that allows students to register, add, and drop classes, review academic schedules, check grades, view unofficial transcripts, access financial aid information, and pay student fees.
Remember! If you enroll in a class and decide not to attend, you are responsible for dropping the class. Don’t assume you will be dropped by your instructor or that the system will drop you automatically. If you fail to withdraw by the deadline the instructor must issue a grade.

Attendance - California Education Code (Title 5) on Excessive Absences
Due to the voluminous variety of knowledge required of professionals in information technology the industry, it is expected for you to attend every class session for the entire class time. Make arrangements with the instructors about hybrid classes. The Las Positas attendance policy will be observed: A student absent for a total of four consecutive or six cumulative instructional hours (1 instructional hour = 50 minutes) and/or two consecutive weeks of instruction may be dropped from that course by the instructor.
In order to be counted present, you must be present for the entire class period. If you need to leave a class session early, please inform me before class begins. Arriving to class late or leaving class early may result in at least one instructional hour of absence depending on the time
In the event that you experience a personal or familial hardship that causes an absence, you are till responsible for the material covered. Our online material has lectures that can assist in learning the many topics, and I am willing to help during contact hours. It is your responsibility to officially drop the course if you choose not to complete it.
If you wish to drop the course at any time for any reason, fill out the appropriate paperwork at the Office of Admissions and Records. Students who do not report to class on the first day may be dropped. Do not assume that I will drop you from the course. If you stop attending the class and do not drop the class after census day, you will receive an F in the class. See the schedule of important dates for deadlines for withdrawing from the course.

Classroom Etiquette
Cell phones should be either turned off or set to silent mode during class. Take your emergency calls outside the class room. Please, put away your smartphones, Ipods, mp3 player during class times. You may bring a laptop computer to class for class work only; not for playing games, chatting, reading the news, checking sports results, or watching funny videos.
During lectures, you are expected to participate. If you are sleepy or distracted, do not come to class. Lenghty texting is not participating. If you wear earphones during lectures, you are not participating. Whispering to the student sitting next to you is very distracting to your classmates and to the instructor.

Official Student Responsibilities and Behaviors
Student Conduct and Due Process

Missed Classes
The student is responsible for obtaining material distributed on class days when he/she was absent. This can be done by contacting a classmate who was present or by contacting the instructor.

Academic Honesty
All work that you submit in this course must be your own, it is a violation of academic integrity to copy someone else's work or to permit another person to copy your work. If any similarity in form or notation is noticed, the instructor retains the right to give a failing grade for the assignment, exam, and/or course.
Students found cheating (fraud, deceit, or dishonesty in an academic assignment) and/or plagiarizing (using another’s work as your own) will receive a zero for the assignment or exam and the incident will be reported to the dean of student services. LPC's policy on academic dishonesty can be found at

Need for Assistance
If you have any condition, such as a physical or learning disability, which will make it difficult for you to carry out the work as I have outlined it, or which will require academic accommodations, please notify me as soon as possible for special arrangements.
