    hi everyone,

    I'm from Australia and consider take A+ exam, now I have check comptia website, the cost for A+ exam is whopping $A308, that's almost twice as much as in US:dry, so in order to get certify I need 601(essential) +602 (IT technician), does that mean I need to spent $A616 just to get certify...:(

    Actually, $168 USD is equal to $A261... so it's only slightly more expensive ($A47), not twice as expensive.

    Yes, if you want to get certified, you'll have to spend $A616. Consider it an investment in your career. Many people spend thousands (and tens of thousands) of dollars to get certified!

    Checkout some websites that do discount vouchers. I am not sure if these lot do discount vouchers for austrailia but have a look at www.gracetechsolutions.com in the UK the two A+ exams are £111 + VAT each which makes it about £260 these lot don't charge VAT and you get a couple of quid off so they cost £107 each.

    Hi WKBI, we are all in the same boat mate. Getting certified isn't cheap but as the saying goes, you've got to speculate to accumulate.

    I am learning from home and am lucky in that my employer has agreed to pay for my exams.

    A good option would be for you to look for jobs that state they invest in their staffs training.

    A job that's not on as much money could be better in the long run if they are willing to pay for your A+ N+ training.

    Best of luck

    I think for me discount voucher has to be purchase from local testing centre, plus it's only few quids more:p, as for staff training, I don't think that's an option since I work in complete different industry:oops:
