If a newer version of your CompTIA certification exam is available, you may renew by taking and passing the latest release of the full exam.
CompTIA regularly updates its exams to make sure they cover the most relevant skills needed to succeed in the role. If a new exam is released during your three-year renewal cycle, you may renew your CompTIA certification by taking and passing the most current version.
Example: If you earned your CompTIA A+ certification by passing the 801/802 exams, you can renew it by passing the CompTIA A+ 901/902 exams during your renewal cycle. Once you pass an exam, you cannot take the same version again to renew your certification.
