I presume you simply want to write the test, not attend classes, based on your question.

Pearson Vue is the authorized tester for CompTIA certifications (this can be verified on the CompTIA org website).

Pearson Vue does not operate any centers in Kelowna. They do have a center in Trail.

You may have the option of performing the A+ certification online. The area of the ComptTIA website that lets one verify that information is currently offline for maintenance.
I'd like to change your mind, but I don't have a fresh diaper.

Here are some practice exams.

Some even have explanations after each answer. Like this one

Never was able to find a testing center in the Okanagan. Decided not to get it, though I did try some practice exams many years ago.

I don't know how important or valuable the certification is to you, however it's not a far stretch to consider a return flight to Vancouver and a transit trip to one of the testing centres available down here (https://wsr.pearsonvue.com/testtaker/re ... TIA/337213). Based purely on location, Ashton Testing Services is fairly accessible by transit from the airport. It would be a rather full day, but incredibly doable.

(nb., I have no knowledge of the testing facility stated other than the listing on Pearson Vue's list).

Trend College used to allow you to challenge the A+ certification test, I think they were taken over by Sprott Shaw College. I believe Okanagan College provides the test. http://www.academyoflearning.com also has the course. So they may allow you to Challenge the test.

My question to you would be why do you want to take the A+ test? Unfortunately A+ has lost most of its credibility after it was added to the High Schools.
