What is the CompTIA A+ certification?
The CompTIA A+ certification is an entry-level IT credential offered by the non-profit Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA). It is the first of three certifications in CompTIA’s “core skills” career path, which includes: A+, Network+ and Security+. A+ validates your skills across the core network and endpoint technologies that are required by today’s digital work-from-anywhere environment. The broad, foundational skills it covers and its introductory focus make it the most popular certification among entry-level IT job openings today, and it is an important building block for more advanced IT roles.
