OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Information technology (IT) workers and field
service technicians throughout the Americas can heighten their skills in printing and document imaging through a new
program offered by CompTIA, the leading provider of vendor-neutral IT certifications, and several leading
manufacturers.

Printing and document imaging solutions manufacturers Brother, Canon U.S.A. Consumer Imaging Group , HP,
Lexmark, Sharp, Panasonic and Xerox are encouraging their technicians, authorized service providers or sub-
contractors throughout the Americas to certify in CompTIA Printing and Document Imaging+ (CompTIA PDI+).

CompTIA PDI+ is the only vendor-neutral certification that measures an IT worker or field service technician’s
ability to support printing and document imaging devices, including printers, copiers, scanners, multi-function devices
and fax machines.

To help technicians prepare for the certification exams, CompTIA and the manufacturers have selected two
providers of cost-effective training solutions to offer training and certification exam bundles at special prices through
December 2010.

The DataVault interactive e-Learning Guide offers a comprehensive, interactive, online course specifically designed
to help individuals prepare for the CompTIA PDI+ certification exam as well as to learn tips to help in day-to-day
troubleshooting.

For experienced technicians with intermediate to advanced skills a gtslearning ebook offers courseware on
CompTIA PDI+ in an e-book format, fully supported with instructor resources, delivered with quality service and
support.

“Today’s IT environment requires IT professionals and employers to commit to an entry-to-expert career path,” said
Terry Erdle, senior vice president, skills certification, CompTIA. “That requires a commitment to continuing
education, training and certification to build on current knowledge and ensure that they have the latest skill sets
required by the industry. We’re pleased that these leading manufacturers have embraced CompTIA PDI+ as a
method for building skills.” 

CompTIA PDI+ covers the skills associated with a technician's understanding of basic electromechanical
components and tools, print engine and scan processes and components, color theory, connectivity, networking and
general troubleshooting. The certification exam also covers “soft” skills such as customer service, professionalism,
safety and environment. Visit CompTIA PDI+ for more information.
