A+ Experts Needed

CompTIA is currently seeking IT professionals with strong technical backgrounds to participate in an Item Writing workshop for our A+ Certification exam.

During the Item Writing workshop, Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) will create, develop, and review item content (questions) for the CompTIA A+ exam.

Assistance from SMEs is crucial in providing an industry relevant exam. While it is preferred that SMEs are A+ certified, or have equivalent or higher credentials, potential SMEs must have at least:

  • 5 years of cumulative professional experience
  • 2 years of current experience in supporting and troubleshooting a variety of computing devices and operating systems including Microsoft Windows, Linux, Mac OSX, Android or IOS

SMEs who attend the workshop will receive:

  • An honorarium of $400 per day (or $2000 total for the week), pending adequate level of participation. International SMEs (outside of North America) will receive a $500 per day stipend to help defer additional travel costs.
  • A complimentary CompTIA testing voucher for the exam of his/her choice
  • 40 continuing education credits (CEUs)
  • Breakfast, lunch, and refreshments daily during the workshop

In recognition of their contributions, all SMEs who participate in the entire Item Writing workshop will have their names and companies (if provided) listed on the CompTIA website.

When: May 4-8, 2020
Where: CompTIA Headquarters; 3500 Lacey Rd. Suite 100, Downers Grove, IL 60515 (Downers Grove is a suburb of Chicago)

Only professionals with strong technical backgrounds with current experience in troubleshooting Microsoft Windows Operating Systems and PC hardware should apply. Although CompTIA appreciates interest from the training community, applications from trainers, authors, or individuals who may profit or materially benefit from knowledge of the CompTIA credential content are not eligible to participate.
