Cert Shelf Life

What was true and cutting-edge in IT three years ago isn’t necessarily either today.

That’s one of the reasons behind our new certification renewal policy, which puts a 3-year shelf life on CompTIA A+, CompTIA Network+ and CompTIA Security+ certifications.

The new policy doesn’t mean you have to take or pay for a new certification exam every three years. Things like publishing IT articles or blog entries, attending a conference or seminar, or even obtaining other industry certifications can count toward keeping your certification current.

It also increases the cred of the certifications. Holding one means you are dedicated to keeping up-to-date on the most current skills and technologies in the field.

Enrollment in the continuing education program is expected to be available in mid-2010. You can click here for more information, including answers to FAQs and how your specific certification is affected.
