CompTIA A Plus (A+) certification validates foundation-level knowledge and skills necessary for a career in PC support and is generally seen as the foundation of a solid IT career before moving onto more advanced certifications. The international, vendor-neutral CompTIA A+ certification proves competence in areas such as installation, preventative maintenance, networking, security and troubleshooting. The CompTIA A+ test also measures customer service and communication skills to ensure IT professionals are able to effectively communicate with their clients.
Two exams are necessary for CompTIA A certification: A+ Certification Exam 220-901 and 220-902. You must take (and pass) exams from the same series, i.e., either 801 and 802 OR 901 and 902. Pearson VUE will not support or recognize mixing and matching between different series.
