About the course

CompTIA IT Fundamentals (ITF+) is an introduction to basic IT knowledge and skills and a pre-career starting point that helps individuals decide if a career in IT is right for them. It can also help organisations prepare non-technical teams for digital transformation.

Why is it different?

ITF+ is the only single certification that covers all areas of IT foundations making it ideal for non-technical professionals.

The CompTIA IT Fundamentals exam will certify that the successful candidate has the knowledge and skills required to identify and explain the basics of computing, IT infrastructure, application and software, software development, database fundamentals, and security.

– Install software
