The Language Acquisition Research Foundation Technology Center is El Paso’s ONLY CompTIA Authorized Academic Partner! We provide training for the CompTIA IT Fundamentals+, A+, Network+ & Security+ Exams. We also train for the TestOut IT Fundamentals Pro, PC Pro, Network Pro & Security Pro Certifications. We believe that starting a career in Information Technology doesn’t require a 2-4 year college degree. Certifications hold more weight in the job market than a degree without certifications. We proudly utilize Official CompTIA Training Materials, proven TestOut Teaching Methodologies & State-of-the-art Instructional Tools to deliver exceptional training for this certification. We have partnered with CompTIA Apprenticeships for Tech, the US Department of Labor and the Texas Workforce Commission to begin Apprenticeship programs as an alternative to traditional technical training.  Our programs are a hybrid hands-on/distance learning platform, taking as little as 16 weeks to complete. (Note: Apprenticeship programs last 13-29 months).  All our Instructors are at least CompTIA A+ certified with over 20 years of combined IT training experience!
