Comp TIA Fundamentals (ITF+) Certification Training


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The CompTIA IT Fundamentals (ITF+) program is an entry-level certification for individuals who are new to the field of Information Technology (IT) and are uncertain if an IT career is the right fit for them. This course will provide students with a comprehensive understanding of basic IT concepts and terminology, including hardware, software, security, and infrastructure. The course will feature hands-on activities and practical exercises to reinforce the concepts learned in class. Students will also have access to practice assessments and study materials to help them prepare for the ITF+ certification exam.

Upon completion of this course, students will be well-equipped to sit for the CompTIA ITF+ certification exam. They will have a solid understanding of basic IT concepts and be prepared to pursue more advanced training, such as the CompTIA A+ or Google IT Support certificate. The course consists of approximately 10-12 hours per week of self-paced online work, including labs, reading material, and practice, supplemented with an additional 2 hours of virtual instruction with an IT professional. Weekly office hours are offered for additional support out of class to ensure student success. CompTIA ITF+ exam fee and software are a separate fee and are included in the tuition.

Until June 30, 2024, Middlesex Community College is able to offer grant funding for this program for those who are unemployed or underemployed.  If you are interested in grant funding or want to learn more, please e-mail career_training@middlesex.mass.edu.
