    CompTIA A+ Exams Undergoing Update

    Thanks to _omni_ for this:

    2/8/2006 -- The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) confirmed to CertCities.com this morning that it is currently revising its A+ certification exams and hinted that the update may be significant.

    In a statement released to CertCities.com today, Neill Hopkins, vice president of skills development for CompTIA, said in part, "We are currently working with the industry on an update of our CompTIA A+ certification to meet the needs of the modern day IT technician. The most exciting development as a result of all of the research conducted...is the fact that the technician of the immediate future will have broad-based skills beyond the basic technical fundamentals, and CompTIA aims to include these options in the new A+."

    CompTIA declined our request for more details on on what these options might be, as well as questions regarding the current status of the update and when the new exams might be delivered. It did say that it will provide more details as the process moves forward.

      Hmmm, how will the transition of this exam from one version to another be handled then?

      For instance, are all reuputable training providers required to update their course material in a timely manner? Surely there's a need to avoid the situation of students using course material that will be inappropriate for a revised exam by the time they are ready to sit it?

      I believe the last transition to 2003 objectives was a minor update and easily catered for. With this next revision apparently being a major one it raises interesting questions on how that will happen.
