We're almost halfway through 2016, and it's shaping up to be another great year. Everything is coming up Kyle! The family is doing well, the soccer team that I coach — 12-year-old girls — is undefeated again this year, and my main man, Steph Curry, is flying high. With back-to-back MVP awards and a soon-to-be second straight NBA championship, it’s no wonder that I love the guy.
Contrary to popular belief, however, Curry isn’t my only “bromance.” I’ve also got it bad for Steve from Blue’s Clues. And why not? We’re both snappy dressers, have weird friends and co-workers, get really excited when we receive mail, and know how to bust a move on the dance floor. And like Steve, I often sing to announce red-letter days:
Today’s the day!
What kind of day?
It’s the day that TestOut just became an authorized partner in the CompTIA Content Partner Program! On top of that good news, our upcoming TestOut PC Pro 5.0.0 (to be released May 26) has been validated as CompTIA Approved Quality Content (CAQC)! This means that a third-party has officially verified that PC Pro 5.0.0 properly prepares students to pass CompTIA’s A+ 220-901 and 220-902 exams. Students everywhere can have confidence knowing that they are receiving the best courseware for earning their A+ certification.
PC Pro is TestOut’s best-selling course and the 5.0.0 update makes it better than ever. It has new content and lots of practice exams to help students prepare for and pass their TestOut’s PC Pro cert exam and CompTIA’s 901 and 902 exams.
Additional updates include a beautiful wide-screen video format; better demos with clear, crisp pictures; and some awesome 3D animations to help students more easily identify computer components. There are new hardware components in the practice labs, a more vibrant simulated office map, and a variety of simulated operating systems including Windows 7, Windows 10 and Linux. There is even a new tutorial video in development.
I’m always impressed with our development team. They put an amazing amount of work and expertise into earning that coveted CAQC stamp-of-approval. Development works closely with TestOut’s sales teams ensure that customer needs are met. They constantly ask our opinions and often follow what we suggest. I love TestOut’s development team. I’m just not sure how I’m going to fit in a third bromance.
