    "The test"? Which test? CompTIA has several.

    If you mean Network+ or Security+ (as you already have the A+), then yes, if you don't pass, you will have to recertify every 3 years.

    Yes, but depending on which exam you're taking...

    A+, Network+ and Security+ are currently life-time certs, but as of 01/01/11 you will need to re-take or take some from of bridge exam every 3 years.

    I'm taking Security+ on the 31st, so best of luck to the both of us!

    As far as I'm aware all other CompTIA certs are life-time and currently have no plans to change.

    Cheers.
