    How useful is the Comptia A+ when leaving technical support (desktop, server side, network admin etc)

    and going into a completely seperate field of I.T such as...

    Programming, web development, database devlopment etc.

    ---

    Will these other spceialist area's of I.T, acknowledge the certification or just fob it off?

    I understand that this is an entirely entry level cert but what limitations / restrictions do you think it has?

    not much, the A+ is for the tech side of things it doesn't involve programming a dbase design.

    Development doesnt really deal with the same sort of stuff as the A+. It cant really hurt to have that knowledge under your belt, but its not the kind of thing employers will generally look for in a developer.
