Introduction

In order to receive CompTIA A+ certification a candidate must pass two exams. The first exam is CompTIA A+ 220-901 and the second is the 220-902 Certification Exam. The CompTIA A+ examination measures necessary competencies for an entry-level IT professional giving the equivalent knowledge of at least 12 months of hands-on experience in the lab or field. Successful candidates will have the knowledge required to assemble components based on customer requirements, install, configure and maintain devices, PCs and software for end users, understand the basics of networking and security/forensics, properly and safely diagnose, resolve and document common hardware and software issues while applying troubleshooting skills. Successful candidates will also provide appropriate customer support; understand the basics of virtualization, desktop imaging, and deployment.

Network+ is the entry-level certification for networking technicians. Skills and subjects covered within the modules include network devices and connectivity, cabling, networking software, network topologies, protocols and many more. Network+ technicians have the understanding to successfully implement an internetwork into an organisation according to the corporate needs.

As a bench-mark to security administration, the Security+ certification provides entry level security administrators with the understanding and skills necessary for secure internetwork communications. Covering subjects like policies, authentication, encryption, viruses, firewalling and system hardening among others, the Security+ qualification ensures candidates receive the knowledge necessary for entry level security administrators.
