CompTIA A+ is one of the most common IT certifications, with thousands of professionals holding A+ certification credentials. The CompTIA A+ Certificate recognizes individuals who have demonstrated the core competencies needed for a successful career in the world of information technology; including basic troubleshooting procedures, network configurations, basic IT security measures; and the communication skills needed to effectively communicate and be part of a successful enterprise IT staff.
CompTIA A+ is unique, however, in its testing requirements. Where other CompTIA certificates such as Network+, Server+, and Security+ are earned with a single exam requiring only one CompTIA exam voucher; earning the A+ certification requires two exams – and two CompTIA exam vouchers – in order to earn certification. CompTIA A+ certification requires the successful completion of two exams:
- A+ 220-901 cover PC hardware and peripherals, mobile device hardware, networking and troubleshooting hardware and network connectivity issues.
- A+ 220-902 covers installing and configuring operating systems including Windows, iOS, Android, Apple OS X and Linux. It also addresses security, the fundamentals of cloud computing and operational procedures.
- A+ 220-801 covers the technical aspects of modern computer systems including hardware and networking
- A+ 220-802 focuses on the skills required to install, configure and maintain PC operating systems, common OS features such as e-mail and network setup; and the basics of mobile devices.
- CompTIA has introduced the 900-series exams for CompTIA A+ December 15, 2015. The 800 series will continue to be available until June 30, 2016.
