LearnKey Releases New A+ Training


-New course is the most effective way to become certified and further a career in information technology-


St. George, Utah—March 26, 2006— For those outside the information technology industry, A+ simply means a good grade. For those who call or want to call IT a career it is a critical component to what they do on an everyday basis.


That’s why LearnKey has produced the premiere A+ training course. The LearnKey A+ course is broken into the various domains, A+ 2006: PC Components (5 sessions), A+ 2006: Laptops, Printers and Scanners (1 session), A+ 2006: Networking (2 sessions), A+ 2006: Operating Systems and Troubleshooting (2 sessions), A+ 2006: Security, Safety and Professionalism (2 sessions). The full A+ Training Certification course is comprised of 12 sessions.


The new course was created in conjunction with CompTIA objectives to best prepare those who wish to pass CompTIA exams 220-601, 220-602, 220-603 or 220-604 and become certified. 


“A+ is one of the first things IT professionals have to learn to be able to do their jobs,” said John Clemons, CEO of LearnKey. “Having a CompTIA certification is an absolute necessity, because it shows that the person who received it truly knows what they’re doing. Those without A+ certification will likely find themselves struggling to further their careers, if they can even get hired.”


A+ Certification emphatically states the recipient knows how to manage a computer, including installation, configuration, diagnosing problems, preventive maintenance and basic networking. The LearnKey course prepares students for relevant questions on the exams, and also sections about other topics such as security, safety, environmental issues, communication and professionalism.


According to a 2006 survey completed by Certification Magazine, certified IT professionals can make up to 15 percent more salary than their un-certified peers. The average A+ certified professional received an 11 percent raise in their first year of certification. According to the survey the average 2006 base salary for an IT pro was $76,500 and anyone can find a place to spend the extra $8,000-$11,000.


LearnKey’s A+ 2006 course is taught by renowned expert Mike Meyers, author of the best-selling All-in-One A+ Certification Exam Guide, now in its sixth edition. He’s also a co-founder of Total Seminars, which trains corporations and government entities, including the FBI, in computer certification skills.


LearnKey’s CompTIA A+ 2006 costs $595.00 for individuals, or $1489.00 for a multi-user license. The course is available online, and on CD-ROM. The course is available for purchase through http://www.learnkey.com/Aplus_2006 and various resellers.
