CompTIA Announces Exam Series Retirement

CompTIA Announces Exam Series Retirement

April 20, 2016 in IT Career Program Alumni / by Nicole Trendel

In Q4 of 2015, CompTIA announced that their A+ 800 series exams will be expiring on June 30, 2016. After that date, those exams will be pulled from all testing centers around the world. If you are already A+ certified, your certification will stay the same and you can stop reading this post now. But, if you haven’t received your A+ certification yet … keep reading!

Recently, CompTIA released their A+ 900 series Objectives, which we began teaching in the TechSmart KC IT Administrator track in early March 2016. This means it is no longer possible to resit the 800 series objectives classes because we are teaching from new books and are gearing individuals towards the new A+ exams.

CompTIA’s updated A+ objectives focus on supporting data across many different devices and types of software. In the past, the objectives have focused on supporting different devices. Today, more users are remoting in or accessing various types of data across different networks, devices, etc. Many times, those devices use their own supporting software. Today’s network administrators are tasked with enabling their users to access content from just about anywhere using a variety of tools.

If you are a TechSmart KC graduate in need of some assistance preparing for the 801 and 802 exams, we will be hosting A+ Boot Camps now through June 20th.

You can register for these boot camps via the links below. But don’t wait! Seats will fill up quickly.

The FINAL 2 event dates are:

Tuesday, May 17: http://goo.gl/forms/5OouPYi7P7

Wednesday, June 1 (LAST CALL): http://goo.gl/forms/rc0mO1P24H

Once you have registered for a particular date, you do not need to register again.
