Update to CompTIA A+ Certification exams announced
CompTIA has announced an update to its CompTIA A+ certification which it says reflects changing job requirements for tech support workers.
The updated version of CompTIA A+ consists of two tests: CompTIA A+ Essentials (220-701) and CompTIA A+ Practical Applications (220-702). CompTIA says the new exams are now available worldwide.
Terry Erdle, senior vice president, skills development, CompTIA, said: "The new exams are streamlined, yet still deliver a comprehensive measurement of the core skills and knowledge required of all entry-level IT professionals regardless of their job role or responsibility.
Approximately 725,000 individuals around the world are CompTIA A+ certified.
CompTIA says the new CompTIA A+ Essentials exam measures the competencies required of an entry-level IT professional with a minimum of 500 hours of hands-on work experience in the lab or field. The exam includes the fundamentals of computer technology, operating systems, networking and security, as well as communication skills and professionalism.
The CompTIA A+ Practical Applications exam focuses on scenarios in which troubleshooting and tools must be applied to resolve problems, with more of a 'hands-on' orientation.
Candidates must pass both exams to become CompTIA A+ certified.
Objectives for both new exams are available at www.comptia.org/certifications/testprep/examobjectives.aspx
