COMPTIA A+, NETWORK+, AND SECURITY+

CERTIFICATION EXAM PREPARATION

Los Angeles City College is pleased to offer preparation packages for three industry-standard certification examinations. These are the CompTIA A+ Certification, which involves the essential hardware and operating system software skills needed to set up and install, maintain, and operate personal computers; the CompTIA Network+ Certification, which includes the technologies and skills for networking installation and configuration; and the CompTIA Security+ Certification, which covers concepts of computer and network security, skills necessary to apply knowledge of security concepts, tools, and procedures to react to security incidents, and guard against the security risks.

The actual examinations themselves are offered off-campus by a third party. The certification examinations are prepared by the CompTIA consortium, a group of computer manufacturers including IBM and Microsoft. CompTIA continually updates the exams and ensures that they are relevant to industry's needs.

The LACC Computer Technology and Electronics group also offers its own certificate to indicate completion of a series of courses for the preparation for the CompTIA A+ and CompTIA Network+ exams. Students must receive a grade of "C" or better to meet certificate requirements.
