If you work in IT security, you know that the CompTIA Security+ exam shows employers you have the understanding to perform core security functions in an IT security career. Much like how technology is always evolving, the Security+ exam is revised every three years to keep up with current security trends. Don’t let time run out—if you are ready to take the CompTIA Security+ under the SY0-501 objectives, you have a limited amount of time to complete your certification before the SY0-601 exam launches. Though the new exam objectives release in November 2020, you only have until July 2021 to complete your certification under SY0-501.
New class structure separates training for the two CompTIA A+ exams and adds hands-on components for less experienced IT pros.
With the introduction of the A+ 1000 series in 2019, CompTIA significantly expanded the content covered by the two exams required to obtain the A+ certification. (What is the A+ certification?) There is a greater emphasis on Cloud computing, virtualization, Internet of Things, cybersecurity and networking than in the previous 900 series. There is also additional content covering IT support roles, operational procedure competency, problem-solving as well as data management, IT security and Cloud technology. The result is that the two certification exams are more challenging than ever before – especially if you are new to your technology career. That’s why Centriq has recently revised its CompTIA A+ training curriculum to give students a better understanding of the material and a greater chance of obtaining their A+ certification.
