    How relevant would the A+ be or help toward getting a trainee job in software testing?

    I *think* not very relevant at all, ive been studying for it for a while now, and its mostly hardware based, as its designed for Technicians.

    Only software bits ive come across in it so far talks about Windows and what it can do

    but i guess, to a degree, testing software would also rely on what hardware its tested on

    if the employer asks for it, do it, if not, dont sweat it, unless its something you specifically want to know about

    the thing is I would rather do tech stuff, but I may have the possibilitie of a software testing role were the company will train me up to become a fully qualified software tester.

    I am thinking if I get the chance then I should do it as it will be my first proper IT job, then I can at least get some proper experience.

    just noticed your doing the A+ anyway

    So if the company is willing to train you up for software testing, great, they may also see your hardware knowledge and expand your role to cover HW and SW
