When taken one after the other, BPC170 and BPC270 will help prepare you to ACE two industry certifications: CompTIA A+ Certification AND the PC Pro Certification. This accelerated class requires an extra level of commitment from the student who will need to plan on a significant number of hours to work on reading and assignments outside of class. This will be explained in full during the first class meeting. This class requires both online and classroom activities. There is no extra charge for taking the PC Pro Industry Certification Exam as it is part of the BPC270 class. There is no textbook for this class, instead the class uses amazing online courseware that includes videos and hands-on simulations. Please review the syllabus and purchase the course materials prior to the first day of class at this link: https://learn.maricopa.edu/login Read the class syllabus to learn how to purchase the course materials at a huge discount.

This will be explained in full during the first class period. Students often take this class for personal interest, however this course is required or a restricted elective for several certificates/degrees at SMCC. Courses in this Lab-Based Learning class are offered in the same classroom at the same time. Students should take BPC170 before taking BPC270, it is not a good idea to take them at the same time.
