Certificate In System Support And Maintenance (COMPTIA A+)
HARDWARE - NETWORK TECHNICIAN / CERTIFICATE IN SYSTEM SUPPORT AND MAINTENANCE (COMPTIA A+)
Since its launch in 1993, over 1,000,000 people are A+ certified in the world by 2014 itself. CompTIA conducted a focused research on what additional skills are needed for an IT Technician and on the basis of feedback received, CompTIA A+ has been updated to reflect both the changes in technology and the unique requirements of evolved IT worker job roles. The goal is to ensure that this benchmark credential remains current and relevant, offering the most value to the candidate, employer and overall market.
CompTIA A+ formerly consisted of one exam focused on hardware technologies and concepts and another on operating systems technologies and concepts. These two skill categories remain the foundation for the technical skills and knowledge needed by entry-level IT workers. However, as technologies, businesses, working environments and customers have evolved, so have the necessary skills of the IT worker. The exam updates reflect the demand for IT workers with a well-rounded skill set.
The updated offering still consists of two tests. However, both include hardware and operating system concepts along with additional domains such as security, safety and environmental issues and communication and professionalism. This structure validates both the knowledge and application of concepts and skills identified by subject matter experts as necessary for entry-level IT workers. In recognition of the evolution of the entry-level IT professional, the updated CompTIA A+ now offers alternative validation paths for specific job scenarios.
