Course Features

Virtual Labs

Virtual labs give you experience practicing and implementing the skills you’ll learn about in this CySA+ course. These labs run on real hardware that enable you to develop the hands-on hardware and operating system skills required to work in the IT industry. Within the sandbox environment, you can make mistakes and see how their actions affect a real system. This is different from a simulated lab where participants are led through a simulated environment that has only one solution and a single path to accomplish a given task. Your access to a complete software and hardware resource helps you fully engage in discovery, solution finding, and problem solving. You will be able to earn your CySA+ certification or final grade with a truly hands-on approach that prepares you for the workforce.

Ascend Education’s videos are engaging and present the most current content available in computer hardware and operating systems training. The format of our videos was designed by expert instructional designers in order to increase learning absorption; studies have shown that instructional videos that are less than 6 minutes in length result in improved learning. 

The video content for this course includes definitions, examples, comparisons, an overview of difficult topics found in the text and thorough demonstrations of what is covered in the material. This format enhances your learning experience and retention, preparing you for your CySA+ certification exams and challenges that you may encounter on the job. 

Textbook Quality Written Content

Written by leading industry experts, our online CySA+ text material is designed to replace your textbook. The detailed text lessons cover all the crucial topics necessary for you to pass the CySA+ certification exams and gain the computer hardware and operating systems knowledge needed in order to advance in your career. The written content (along with all other course material) is delivered on a professionally designed LMS that automatically tracks your progress as you complete a given section.
