Computer Repair Training Plus

Computer repair training plus develops a knowledge base and the appropriate A+-logoskills needed to repair and maintain computers.  There are many vocational, trade tech, and college level classes available.  The Regional Occupational Centers (ROPs) where I teach are great places to learn.  They are usually free or very low cost and provide working industry experts that give you valuable hands-on experience.  I have had several IT college graduates that told me that this was the first time they ever got to actually touch the insides of a computer and apply what they learned.  Application of the knowledge is what helps develop necessary computer repair skills.  We take the computers down to the bare metal and then build them back up.  You learn how to properly configure hard drives so that maintenance and backups are easy to perform.  You will learn all about the Windows operating system and all its short comings and problem areas, such as, why is my computer so slow.  You will learn about many open source utilities and programs that will help greatly in troubleshooting and maintenance.  All this should be helping you to obtain the A+ certification from CompTIA .  A+ will open many doors to this exciting field.  There is some study you will have to do, but you will find it very rewarding as all the mystery of computers is revealed and you become a proficient tech.

The Computer Repair Training website has some additional information you might find helpful.

    Hi Mike, Some windows and system services are protected. Viruses will also attach themselves to protected services to prevent their removal. Google should help to id the service otherwise it might be a virus. Regards, Greg

    Hi Mr. French,
    Thank you so much for your video posts. I was looking through your videos on YouTube and landed here. I tried searching your Uploads for Part 1 to watch the videos in chronological order, but noticed there were several. As a beginner, I’m quite overwhelmed with all the resources and links that are available from all around the world and am not quite sure where to start. Essentially, what I’m wondering is this: if a student were to walk up to you stating that they have “zero” background in computers but is considering on becoming a technical support specialist, what subjects/aspects of the computer would you suggest they study/get-to-know, and in what order? Your knowledge and insight would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks Again,
    J.B.

    Hi J.B.,

    You should consider studying for the CompTIA A+ certification. It will guide you to whats important to learn. They are many good resources available on the Internet.

    Regards,
    Greg

    My computer has a red light inside the mother board and bips but it does not run. COULD YOU TELL ME WHAT TO DO?

  • gfrench

    The manufactures website should have a list of the beep codes and it will tell you what it means.

    I attend ITT Tech and I have been watching your videos on youtube and I want to thank you because I am learning so much more from your videos. I took your A+ practice test and I did very well and when I got my results it said to download my certificate (I know it isnt for the A+ itself) but any certificate that I can receive is a keeper for me. But it wouldn’t work and said to contact the site to let them know it wouldn’t work. I like to keep anything I accomplish. Thank You
