For the initial CompTIA A+ Bootcamp pilot, we will be asking participants to provide detailed feedback to help refine our content and processes. As a pilot program, the tuition will be reduced significantly and may be payable via purchase order or credit card.

CITE Members: $600 for Core 1 (Spring 2024)

Non-Members: $720 for Core 1 (Spring 2024)

Please plan to purchase a specified CompTIA A+ study book (info forthcoming).

*Core 2 (Fall 2024) will be a separate registration fee and will become available later this spring.

We are also seeking experienced CITE community members who are interested and able to commit to facilitating one or more CompTIA A+ (Core 2) sessions beginning Fall 2024.
What does a facilitator do? Each facilitator reviews prepared content, slide decks, agendas, and pre-set activities in preparation to lead a two-hour session. Each session is a deep dive into one or more learning objectives for the module.
Facilitators meet ahead of time with CITE staff to discuss ways to bring their own professional experience to the session. Facilitators are provided a stipend and recertification hours for TMAP and the CTOM program.
