CompTIA A+ is the industry standard for launching IT careers into today’s digital world. It is performance-based, trusted by employers worldwide, regularly re-invented by IT experts, and offers a complete skills development solution.
CompTIA A+ certified professionals are proven problem solvers supporting today’s core technologies. While they support different critical-path teams as IT Support pros, it can open up opportunities with different career specializations:
• Security Operations Center – Security Analyst, Penetration Test, Network Specialist • Network Operations Center – Network Admin, Systems Admin, Data Center Manager • IT Applilcations Support – Systems Analyst, Business Analyst, Ops Analyst
The CompTIA A+ certification you earned is very much different from the new CompTIA A+ Core Series. The new Core Series focuses on enabling end users and devices to securely access the data needed to complete a task.
• IoT is expanded with both device hardware and device connectivity addressed • Scripting is introduced as an important technical support tool • Cloud and virtualization get a dedicated domain • Troubleshooting and problem solving for real-time IT support challenges
To be a CompTIA A+ Certified, the candidate is required to pass two exams: Core 1 (220-1001) and Core 2 (220-1002). Core skills covered in these exams:
• Hardware – PCs and mobile devices, hardware components, IoT and embedded systems • Infrastructure – Network Architecture, Network components and protocols • Software – cloud based, operating systems, email administration • Data – Data backup and recovery, storage and management, analytics • Security issues –Security settings and administration, threats and vulnerabilities, prevention methods and tools • Operations and Service – troubleshooting and problem solving, foundational IT skills, customer service and other soft skills
