Basics of Building a Desktop Computer & CompTIA ITF+ Test Prep

Computers are an absolute necessity in the modern world, though knowing how to use them is only half the battle. Understanding the layout and internal parts of a desktop computer will provide you the knowledge needed to upgrade and replace various parts in an existing desktop computer, design and build a desktop computer from scratch, and acts as a foundation for the learning of future computer skills, such as programming or troubleshooting.

In the process of learning these skills, you'll also learn everything necessary in order to pass the CompTIA ITF+ certification exam! This certification is an optional way of expressing your skills to potential employers and is most useful to young people starting out on their career path, and working adults considering a transition, however, this class will teach skills useful to people of any age and profession.

This course will be taught by Shane, where he provides a variety of services for clients from across the country. Shane is an experienced IT professional, having worked years for Fortune 500 companies, designed and built computers for both personal and professional environments, and is an avid gamer in his spare time. He was also a D1 ice hockey player in college and is an experienced teacher, having taught both computer and hockey skills professionally in the past.

Extra information

Since this class is taught online by webcam, you'll need a working computer. Specifically, you'll want to make sure your screen and speakers/headphones work so that you can follow along with the video.

If you'd like to enhance the experience and have access to an old or unused desktop computer, let Shane know and he'll happily tailor the course to help you to learn your specific computer better.

Further, if you were considering designing and building your own desktop computer now, Shane can help you to pick and purchase parts, allowing you to build your computer over the course of the class!
