Comptia A+ Certification

CompTIA A+ certification has been around since 1993 and over that time there have been four different systems of examination for it. The latest A+ examination, the 2009 edition, is split into two separate exams. The last edition, 2006, is still available, but is in the process of being phased out. If you have already gained 2006 A+ certification then it is possible to update you qualification with a bridge exam. If you have an older certification or you are training for your first A+ certification, then both of the 2009 exams are necessary.

The examinations for A+ certification have been updated in order to keep up to date with the rapid progress of technology. Computers are an area which has always been fast moving and it is not so long ago that many people considered the idea of most houses (and indeed most people) having their own computer as a science fiction day dream. With such swift advancement it is important for everyone involved that the qualifications, especially such an important one as the A+ certification, move forwards as the technology does. Although it may be irritating to realise that your qualification is out of date, keeping up to date gives you the advantage.

If you want to update your MCITP Training and MCTS Training from 2006 to 2010 then it is possible to do so, as mentioned above, with a bridge examination. This is a single ninety minute exam, code BR0-003, consisting of eighty-five questions. On the other hand, if you are updating from an older certification such as the 2003, then you will need to take both 2009 examinations in order to maintain A+ qualification. These exams are both ninety minutes long and each has one hundred questions.
