CompTIA’s certification CompTIA A+ has now been accredited to one million people within the IT workforce.
The CompTIA A+ certification first launched in 1998 and covers computer technology, installation and configuration of PCs, laptops and hardware, as well as basic networking.
It also rewards those who can configure features within mobile operating systems, including iOS and Android.
Todd Thibodeaux, president and CEO at CompTIA, said: “Through years of innovations in technology and changes in the workplace, CompTIA A+ continues to hold its standing as the cutting-edge, must-have credential for people taking their first steps into the IT workforce.”
Brian Blum, owner of Maverick Solutions IT and Logan Murphy who works for Long View Systems, are among some of the winners of the certification.
CompTIA and many of its authorised partners are celebrating the one million-milestone by awarding more than 45 prizes to IT professionals around the world.
Play3r’s Dave says “Being one of the 1 million to hold a A+ certification makes me very proud, self-learning the modules and taking the exams was hard and well earned in my opinion. It’s fantastic to see A+ uptake hitting the big 1M marker”.
