How often do you have to recertify for the A+ Certification?


The CompTIA A+ certification is a lifetime certification.

Note, however, that many technical interviewers will ask when your cert was taken, and on what platforms.


is there really any lifetime certification? What is CompTIA?
It doesn't make sense to me if there is lifetime certification and we don't have to renew it again considering that people are getting older and forgetting many things!

Enlighten me please!


CompTIA is the company that offers the A+. *They* put the lifetime validity on it i.e. it has no expiration if an employer checks on it.

The A+ is primarily a hardware cert, so that's not unreasonable. Once you get in "the business", you generally keep up or or move beyond the hardware level.




Just in case anyone else looks at this page and wants to use it as reference...

Effective January 1, 2011, all new CompTIA A+, CompTIA Network+ and CompTIA Security+ certifications will be valid for three years from the date the candidate is certified
