CompTIA really provides IT professionals with many career options. Taking its certifications exam does not only mean that an IT professional becomes a programmer or a technician. Vast arrays of options are being laid out to its patrons, whether it be in the technological business field or in an relatively social field.
CompTIA also allows options for IT professionals to become effective support providers apart from the opportunity to become an IT proponent mostly in the programming field. However, interested professionals must first be able to pass these two modules: A+ Core and A+ Operating Systems.
However, people would find it necessary to take the A+ certification first since this would help open up into a larger field of programming and computer related expertise. Test takers actually have two options to take: the A+ 2003 certification or the A+ 2006 certification. Although on usual cases, both exams are still being taken and the details below explains why.
Taking a general A+ course can actually cover up prior to taking either of these CompTIA options. The 2006 versions advantage is that it is a more updated version than that of its predecessor, the A+ 2003. Still, IT professionals are required to take both exams for them to be seen as experts in their field as well as effective support providers. In the end, the test taker is still given some options of choosing which test to take first and which test to focus on first since the order of taking those does not really matter.
