Frequently Asked Questions About CompTIA Systems Support Specialist (CSSS)
What is the CompTIA CSSS course about?
The CompTIA CSSS course is designed to provide comprehensive training for students in the field of cybersecurity. It includes foundational IT skills from the CompTIA A+ certification, which covers a wide range of topics from computer hardware and software to networking and mobile devices, and the advanced cybersecurity skills from the CompTIA Security+ and CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) certifications.
What topics are covered in the CompTIA A+ section of the course?
The CompTIA A+ section covers a wide range of topics, including hardware, networking, mobile devices, Windows operating systems, other operating systems and technologies, security, software troubleshooting, and operational procedures. The course is divided into modules, each focusing on a specific area, such as device management, operating system configuration and management, network management, security measures, and more.
What prerequisites are required for the CompTIA CSSS course?
The course page does not specify any prerequisites for this course. However, the individual CompTIA certifications that make up the CSSS course, namely A+, Security+, and CySA+, each have their own recommended prerequisites and experience levels. For instance, CompTIA A+ is generally considered an entry-level certification and doesn’t require any specific prerequisites, while CompTIA Security+ and CySA+ often recommend having some level of prior IT and/or security experience.
What kind of job roles can this course prepare me for?
The CompTIA CSSS course covers a wide range of skills relevant to various IT roles. With the foundational IT skills from the CompTIA A+ certification, you can work in roles like service desk analyst, help desk tech, and IT support specialist. The advanced cybersecurity skills from the CompTIA Security+ and CySA+ certifications can prepare you for roles like systems administrator, network administrator, security administrator, and cybersecurity analyst.
How is the course delivered?
The course is delivered online, which allows students to learn at their own pace. The course includes instructor-led videos, practice exams, and quizzes to help reinforce learning. Further details about the course delivery would be provided upon enrollment.
How does this course compare to obtaining the individual CompTIA certifications separately?
The CompTIA CSSS course essentially bundles the training for three individual CompTIA certifications (A+, Security+, and CySA+). This could provide a more structured learning path for students who know they want to learn about both foundational IT and cybersecurity. However, it’s important to note that taking this course does not automatically give you the certifications—you would still need to pass the individual CompTIA exams for A+, Security+, and CySA+ to officially earn these certifications.
