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!”
On August 12, CompTIA posted a press release concerning a certification update delivered at the CompTIA Breakaway event this week. To summarize, IT jobs are expected to greatly increase over the next several years. With those new jobs, a different set of skills will be required according to industry trends.
“Trends in technology are changing the employment landscape,” Terry Erdle, senior vice president, skills certification, CompTIA, said in remarks delivered at Breakaway 2010, the premier event for IT companies in North America.
“It doesn’t mean that we don’t need people,” he added. “It’s just a different kind of job.”
