Community Computer Education Society
The Community Computer Education Society (CECS) is the oldest computer training -governmental organisation in South Africa and was established in April 1985 for the technological empowerment of the historically disadvantaged. CECS offers the most affordable and quality computer training in South Africa.
CECS is conducting a course A+ PC Technician & Networking from 4 July to 22 September 2016 and 26 September to 15 December 2016 in Johannesburg.
CompTIA A+ and N+ certification is essential for anyone entering the computer support field. In fact, this credential not only validates your skills in tasks such as installation, diagnostics, configuring, performing preventative maintenance, and basic networking, it is becoming a qualifying factor in the hiring process. If you are preparing yourself for a position as an IT Technician, Help Desk Support, or a variety of technical roles, getting certified will serve you well. With many companies now requiring A+ and N+ certification of their computer support technicians, obtaining the necessary A+ and N+ training is a critical first step towards a better job.
CECS has combined the A+ and the N+ certification to form the A+ PC Technician and Networking (N+) course. CECS is a member of CompTIA since 2004.
You will be charged about a third of what commercial training institutions charge for this type of course, yet we maintain the quality of training which is comparable and in some respects surpasses that of commercial training institutions. Commercially, this course will cost about R12 000.
The exam fees are R1 000 each of the two A+ certifications and R1 300 for the N+ certification. This is because CECS is a member of the CompTIA Education to Careers (E2C) programme and is able to offer this to CECS students. Commercially, you will be charged about R1 800 per module that is R5 400 just for the exams.
You will be provided with extensive sample tests to improve your chances of passing the exams the first time.
About the Certifications
The Comptia A+ certification demonstrates competency as a computer technician. The 2011 objectives require that a candidate successfully pass the A+ Essentials and one elective: IT technician, remote support technician, or depot technician. CompTIA is vendor neutral but does lean toward Microsoft Windows.
