CompTIA A+ has been updated to align with the hybrid workforce.
The new version of CompTIA A+ (220-1101 and 220-1102) is available worldwide.
The new exam also recognises the changing nature of the tech support job role, where many tasks are sent to specialised providers. CompTIA A+ certified personnel are better able to assess whether it is best to fix something on site, or to save time and money by sending proprietary technologies directly to vendors.
Individuals who achieve CompTIA A+ certification have demonstrated the skills to install and configure end-user devices and software; connect devices to networks; perform basic cybersecurity mitigations; troubleshoot common problems to diagnose and resolve issues; and demonstrate basic knowledge of scripting, the cloud, and virtualization.
Accompanying the release of the new exam is the availability of a comprehensive suite of learning and exam preparation resources.
