Hey, Mike Meyers here. The Team at Total Seminars and I are excited to bring you this video series to help you pass the CompTIA A+ Certification Core 1 (220-1001) exam.

Between my bestselling A+, Network+, and Security+ books and my video courses, I've taught over 2 million people how to take and pass these CompTIA IT industry certification exams. I've got an easy-going, approachable, and funny teaching style that has helped newbies and experienced techs alike learn valuable IT skills. I've taught in-person seminars for the DEA and the FBI, and now I'm going to teach you, yes YOU, staring at the screen there, everything I know about the CompTIA A+ certification.

This is the first of a two-course series and is designed to prepare you to take and pass the CompTIA A+ 2019 Core 1 (220-1001) exam. It's an internationally-recognized, fundamental IT training certification. Not interested in certification? No problem. Even if you just want to learn about the basics of IT and computers, I've got you covered.

  • Course 1: TOTAL: CompTIA A+ Certification (220-1001). (this course)

  • Course 2: TOTAL: CompTIA A+ Certification (220-1002).

To become fully A+ certified you will need to pass both the 220-1001 and 220-1002 exams.

"I used these courses to pass the A+, Security+, and Network+ in a span of 2.5 months. I had no IT experience 4 months ago. Now I am a network engineer at a managed service provider with a great salary and solid upward mobility." - Ryan D.

“Mike is an incredible instructor and very engaging. Actually teaches you about technologies and how they work rather than just what you need to know to pass an exam. Can't recommend highly enough.” - Dylan T.

“Awesome. As an IT student, I already knew about PCs & related hardware and so on...this is an awesome course & Mike described everything nicely. If you are new to IT industry (less than 5 years) this is a must course for you. ” – Muhammad T.

“[Mike] Meyers is amazing when it comes to explaining. His fun little bits, such as when he explains common problems and how to troubleshoot them, keep you engaged and help it stick so much better. I went from barely understanding little bits here and there to passing the 1001 on my first try with the help of this course. …If you have tried reading the books and listening to lectures from people who sound like the teacher from Ferris Bueller then I would highly recommend this course paired with his practice tests.” – Robert F.

“This course was above my expectations. 1/2 way through and it is NOT boring, drilling information AT ALL. A positive, knowledgeable instructor who clearly speaks. Not only is the instructor positive, but fun and engaging. Very easily relays information in an easy to understand and easy to remember format. Perfect category breakdowns and great resources available too. Looking forward to passing my CompTIA A+ with ease. ” – Kerri O.

Technology is ranked as the #1 source of U.S. jobs. Are you looking to kickstart your career, improve your existing IT skills, or increase your chances of getting that IT job? Did you know 96% of HR managers use IT certifications as screening or hiring criteria during recruitment?*

Some jobs that use A+ certifications are Support Specialists (avg. $54,500/yr.), Field Service Technicians (avg. $46,000/yr.), and Desktop Support Analysts (avg. $60,000/yr.).

More Certifications = More $$

  • A+ Cert with no other certifications = $47,500/yr.

  • A+ Cert with 1 or 2 other active certs. = $84,250/yr.

  • A+ Cert with 3 or 4 other active certs. = $92,080/yr.

  • A+ Cert with 5 or 6 other active certs. = $97,310/yr.

  • A+ Cert with 7 or 8 other active certs. = $105,150/yr.

Not looking for a cert? Maybe you're just interested in how to keep your home network router from constantly doing that annoying red-blinky-light thing. Or be the family hero and set up that awesome smart thermostat you've had in your Amazon cart for a year. Or perhaps you want to learn to how to get your iPhone to work so you don't have to keep asking your friend's brother's aunt's niece for help. Whatever your motivation, this course is perfect to help give you a robust IT foundational knowledge in a way that's easy-to-understand. And, hopefully, you'll have a few laughs with me along the way.
