How to become Apple Certified

Katherine Whitson ITSUP 177-600 Project 01 Why become Apple certified? To become Apple certified is a great accomplishment. Because Apple is a very closed source company, it is often found difficult to make repairs to these computers. When people have an issue with their Apple computer, they are often referred to an Apple store for repairs to their computers. To become Apple certified would provide you with the knowledge to repair these devices. You will learn the ins and outs of Apple’s operating systems, how to troubleshoot the issues, as well as hardware issues. Let it be known that becoming certified by apple does not make you an authorized Apple technician on behalf of Apple. By opening a computer, the warranty will be void. How do I start? Beginning the process to gain a certification is not a difficult task. You can simply make an easy google search or look on Apple’s website. By clicking on the link below: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT205332 This link provides a great deal of Apple’s certification training. Where are the classes held? The classes can be done one of two ways. Apple does provide in person classes which are hosted in different areas of the county. If you choose the in-person class, you will have to travel to the class location. The in-person class lasts for four consecutive days lasting from 9am-5pm. Attendance is mandatory as missing even one day will jeopardize your learning experience. The other way to take Apple’s class is the online method. By taking the class online, you can do it at your own pace. This is very useful for those who...

How to prepare to complete job application and pass skills test for IT Computer Support Job

The “skills tests” that I have taken, never tested my actual IT skills.  So far, they have just been variations of personality tests with questions that seem to have no actual relevance to the job I will be performing like a technical skills test would.  Here's a capture of a search I did for IT online skills tests: Various types of test show up that may or may not test your actual IT technical skills.  For example:  One would think that a person working in IT in Help Desk or Desktop Support would get technical questions about motherboards, hard drives, memory or converting decimals to binary.  So far, of the 25 jobs I have applied for the number of actual IT technical quizzes I have received is ONE.  In my opinion the personality tests are a complete waste of time because it does not guarantee a good fit.  Stated another way, a person can “pass” whatever personality test they are given and still not be a candidate.  Personally, I would much rather just have a phone or video interview and start the process there.  But I digress.   Following are captures of questions from an actual “IT Job Aptitude” test.   Many times there will be a series of questions that are stated over and over just in different ways.  Various types of questions exist. You may never understand what companies are looking for, don't worry. Sometimes the questions will test your ability to figure out patterns or intervals.  As you can see from these captures none are IT related.  Answering these questions have no bearing on your quality as...
