    Hi All,

    I just joined this group today.

    I have basic knowledge about computer and wanted to do CompTIA courses. Regarding this I have few questions: 1) Having CompTIA certifications helps getting job? 2) What is the course to start with?

    Hi Jhon,

    Welcome to the forums!

    I'm looking for a new job in IT too. Certifications like the Comptia A+ won't guarantee you a job, but it will help in applications. Do you have existing knowledge of troubleshooting, PC hardware etc? If you don't, It might be worth checking out the MTA certifications as they give you great foundations and are easier to digest if you don't have any preliminary knowledge.

    Personally, my plan is to do a few more MTAs before I tackle the A+ as I think it will help to ease the learning process. Of course, you may decide that you are ready to dive straight in to the A+. My point is, everyone is different; you need to decide what's best for you.

    Good luck in your certification journey ;)
    Certifications: CCNA R&S, CCENT, F5 101 Application Delivery Fundamentals, ITIL Foundation (2011), CompTIA (A+, Network+), MTA (Windows OS, Networking, HTML5)
    WIP: CCNA Security

    Welcome! A+ Certification is definitely where you want to start your journey. It is the foundation on which I think really any certification path you want to take is founded. I'm in the middle of my A+ prep myself, and I have a skype group with others studying it involved as well. Let me know if you are interested and we can add each other, so that I can put you in the group!
