CompTIA IT Fundamentals

CompTIA IT Fundamentals (ITF+) is an introduction to basic IT knowledge and skills.

Description of Course

The CompTIA IT Fundamentals exam focuses on the essential IT skills and knowledge needed to perform tasks commonly performed by advanced end-users and entry-level IT professionals alike, including:

  • Using features and functions of common operating systems and establishing network connectivity
  • Identifying common software applications and their purpose
  • Using security and web browsing best practices

This exam is intended for candidates who are advanced end users and/or are considering a career in IT. The exam is also a good fit for individuals interested in pursuing professional-level certifications, such as A+.

The English language version of the CompTIA IT Fundamentals FC0-U51 certification exam retired July 15, 2019. Translated versions retire December 1, 2019, and Japanese will remain available through March 31, 2020.

Why is it different?

CompTIA ITF+ helps professionals to decide if a career in IT is right for them or to develop a broader understanding of IT.

  • ITF+ is the only pre-career certification that helps students or career changers determine if they have a competency for information technology and if it is the right career path for them.
  • ITF+ is the only single certification that covers all areas of IT foundations, creating a broader understanding of IT making it ideal for non-technical professionals.
  • ITF+ establishes an IT education framework for students in middle school and high school.
