This foundational Operating Systems and Applications training prepares learners to comfortably navigate and manage operating systems and applications for different devices and systems with a fundamental understanding of OS operations.
Physically speaking, a desktop computer is only a few pieces of hardware connected to each other with wires. But you can’t just plug in any hard drive, RAM, motherboard and graphics card to each other and expect them to work. An operating system is needed to make sure those pieces of hardware talk to each other and that everything has the necessary applications.
An operating system (like Windows, Apple or Linux) is connective tissue. Different OSs work differently, but there are similarities to what they’re capable of and how they do their important work. Learn the basics with this Operating Systems and Applications training.
For anyone who leads a technology team, this CompTIA training can be used to onboard new or aspiring IT professionals, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a CompTIA reference resource.
Operating Systems and Applications Fundamentals: What You Need to Know
For any anyone looking to improve their proficiency with operating systems and applications, this CompTIA course covers topics such as:
- Understanding how operating systems manage applications, memories and devices
- Recognizing how a server’s operating system differs from a mobile device’s
- Choosing the right file system: NTFS, FAT32, HFS or Ext4
- Navigating and altering an operating system’s folders, directories and permissions
Who Should Take Operating Systems and Applications Fundamentals Training?
This Operating Systems and Applications Fundamentals training is considered foundational-level CompTIA training, which means it was designed for non-technical professionals or aspiring IT professionals with no experience at all.
OS user training. If you use an iPhone at home and Windows at work and you’ve wondered why the buttons and applications are so different, this course holds that answer along with many others. This Operating Systems and Applications Fundamentals course reveals the basic differences between operating systems and what you can do to optimize their performance, regardless of the one you’re using.
New or aspiring IT professionals. Something that defines an IT professional is how often their job moves them from one device to another — from a mobile device, to a desktop computer, and even servers. As you go from one type of device to another, you’ll need to recognize and be able to navigate its operating system. This Operating Systems and Applications Fundamentals course is designed to make you familiar with what they’re all trying to accomplish and how to manipulate the technical parts that make them similar.
