While there are no strict prerequisites, CompTIA intends the Healthcare IT Technician certificate to serve as an add-on to the CompTIA® A+® certification. Students should have experience and comfort with the following concepts and tasks: The estimated lesson times for this course are assigned based on the assumption that you will need to pace the class for students who have the minimum required prerequisites. That is, it assumes that students have only end-user computer skills, and do not have the CompTIA A+ certification or equivalent knowledge and experience, and you will need to spend time teaching the basic computer support sections in lessons 4, 5, and 6 quite thoroughly. The lesson times also assume that you will use all the provided media support components in class, including interactive simulated activities and animated demonstrations, and that you will spend ample time allowing students to explore the various healthcare IT-related websites mentioned throughout the courseware. Because everyone has some personal experience with the healthcare system, the lesson times also allow class time for students to share and discuss those experiences, and how they interpret them in light of the course information about health IT requirements and regulations.
