Clearly, those who have achieved CompTIA certifications are not regretting their decisions. Let's take a look at some of the real benefits CompTIA certifications bring to the table.
CompTIA certifications help candidates build a solid foundation of essentials knowledge and skills that will help them advance their careers. Starting at a higher certification level might seem like a timesaver, but often this can actually delay your progress because you're missing the necessary fundamentals. It's like skipping algebra and going straight for calculus, it just won't work.
With the A+ certification you will be able to apply for jobs as a computer technician, technical support representative, help desk specialist, printer repair technician and other similar opportunities. Some companies, like CompuCom and Ricoh, have made CompTIA A+ certification mandatory for their service technicians.
