Strata Fundamentals of IT Technology

by jleany - Sep 10, 2010


The LearnKey production team is hard at work this week and Ammon Wiese is in front of the camera for this course. I asked Ammon if he could share with us how the week has been going so far and what we have to look forward to in the Strata Fundamentals of IT Technology course. Here’s what Ammon had to say…

“Hey LearnKey fans I thought that I would give you an update on how things are going in the studio this week. I am filming CompTIA’s newest certificate exam, Strata Fundamentals of IT Technology. Even though this should be considered an entry-level exam or certificate, you will find that CompTIA has really put together an exam that should be used as a pre-requisite to completing the A+ certification. This course is going to be great we’ve gathered segments from a number of our most popular instructors and along with me, they will teach you everything that you will need to know in order to take the Strata test and pass it with confidence. There is a lot of information to cover and the director is screaming at me to stay focused so I’d better get back on task. See you through the lens 🙂 and I hope you like the course!”

Keep an eye out later this year on learnkey.com for this course to be released. Or to receive new course updates, Like us on Facebook, Follow us on Twitter, or sign up for email updates.

Are you ready for Outlook 2010? 

Expert Michael Meskers was here last week filming LearnKey’s Outlook 2010 training. The training showcases some of the great new features the latest version of Outlook has to offer like the ability to manage multiple email accounts,  organize your emails  with conversation threads, and stay connected to your social networks . 

Microsoft enhanced the functionality, simplified things, and provided us with more ways to customize Outlook, which in turn allows us to be a lot more efficient.

Be looking for the release of our new Outlook 2010 training! It’s going to be great!
