As technology is becoming more and more important in our daily lives, there is a growing demand for skilled professionals (also known as IT technicians) who can offer quality technical support. Computer repair technicians fill this need, and while their specific responsibilities can vary from position to position, their duties often include:


  • Installing hardware and software systems
  • Maintaining or repairing equipment
  • Troubleshooting a variety of computer issues
  • Setting up computer security measures
  • Configuring computer networks
  • Offering technical support on-site or via phone or email


Computer technicians can be found working in a variety of industries. Possible job opportunities range from a computer technician in a retail electronics store who helps repair hardware or software, to a member of an internal IT team within large and medium sized companies, to a computer support technician who helps customers over the phone with their computer issues.

Assessment and Award

For this course, you will have to complete assignments and send them to the College. In addition, this course will prepare you to take your external CompTIA A+ exams.


  • 220-901 for CompTIA A+ Essentials
  • 220-902 for CompTIA A+ Practical Application


Once you have successfully completed the exams, your Prometric Testing Centre will provide you with a report and CompTIA will issue you with a certification pack. Included in your certification pack is a credit card with the details of the exams that you have passed as well as the expiry date, which means you will have to update your exams every three years by enrolling on CompTIA’s continuing education program to keep your certification current.


Your first assignment will be on Goal Setting, which will arrive with your Welcome Pack.
