A+ Certification offered by CompTIA is the most widely
recognized certification in the field of computer hardware and
operating systems. A+ is a vendor neutral certification. It means,
unlike CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate) which is vendor
specific, A+ is not dedicated to a particular computer hardware or
operating system. To obtain A+ Certification, one need to pass two
constituent exams, viz A+ Essentials, and A+ IT Technician exams.
A+ certified professional will be capable of performing the
1. Assemble and test computer hardware
2. Install computer operating systems like Windows XP, Mac, or Vista
(Note that CompTIA offers a separate exam for Linux, and it is not
covered in A+)
3. Troubleshoot hardware and software problems with PCs
4. Exhibit good professional ethics
Other certifications offered by Comptia include Network+, and Linux+.
