Bethel AME Church will be offering “Free” A+ Certification training,
coming soon 3rd quarter 2016!
What is an A+ certification?
An A+ certification is the entry level certification
available to entry level IT personnel. It’s normally a 90 day course
offering the basics of computer hardware, software, and how companies
utilize computers in their daily operations, with the goal of providing
enough training to allow one to gain entry level employment in the IT field.
How could Bethel provide A+ training & certifications?
Bethel has the infrastructure needed to facilitate this
type of training. Actual course training is online based and 100% free to
Bethel AME Church. Bethel has experienced IT individuals to facilitate the
hands on classroom training.
Is there a cost involved to obtain the actual A+
certification after the totally free training has been completed?
Yes, there are 2 tests that must be passed. Cost per test
is $200.00, however, because Bethel AME church is a 501 c3 organization, our
cost for Bethel trained students will only be $99.00 per test, $180.00
You must show financial ability to take the 2 required
tests after training and obtain employment. Testing centers are located in
several Kansas City metro areas. Bethel can provide some limited financial
support in this area.
