    I have recently attained A+ certification after passing 220-701 and 220-702. I have a few questions, however, which seem somewhat specific to how people look at A+. I'm trying to update my résumé, but I'm not certain what is the best way to include this, my first certification. Should I specify that my certification is according to the 2009 objectives? The 2011 update? Version 2? Do I need to include the "continuing education" since newer certficates expire? Could that be abbreviated, and if so, should the case I choose matter? It's "ce" on .pdf of the certificate. Should I include the date I was certified upon, or when the cert is valid through, or is that information best withheld, as a prospective employer should verify this on their own?

    I just put CompTIA A+ and the month and year I passed.
    It's doubtful that anyone who is looking at your CV knows (or cares about) the in's-and outs of the A+ track so any more would just be CV noise and distract from the main piece of information.

    I'd put on the Logo and CompTIA A+ for as long as the A+ is valid.

    I just put CompTIA A+, no more detail as I've found that at most interviews I've been to they know next to nothing about the CompTIA stuff anyway. So I give them the details when they ask.
