You had doubts. I think most of us where always clear, that you can`t mix A+ Exams for the Certification.Just a quick, although late, update. The official answer from Comptia is both exams must be from the same series. It took Comptia 6 days to respond, but at least we have clarity.
MichaelIn order to receive the CompTIA A+ certification, candidates must pass two exams: Core 1 (220-1001) and Core 2 (220-1002).
Hello Rob, i did not want to offense you. Asking question is ok, and a reason for this Forum. I have not be reading here much before, otherwise i would have answered it back in Oct. if you read the PDF above, you can believe, it is an inclusive information. But yes, i had a student last year, with this Problem. Passt 901, failed 902, wanted to take 1002 to get the Certification. So i was there before, too..Yes I had doubts and if you read this post several people had doubts. Sorry I am not as enlighten as you, so I ask questions. Please forgive my ignorance.
How about offering a Delta Course? I mean, if your Course runs two years, and every 3 Years the Exam is renewed: You know, you have some timing issues, that needs to be addressed. There is a grace period, with both Exam-version offered, but you need to include in your timing that as well. So there may less time for retaking when students fail, but with two years time, students should be prepared to pass it.."And there is plenty of time to pass from the then old or new Series." -- not if you teach the A+ over two years to high school students. I'm going to have to have my 220-1001 take 1101 again next year while they are worrying about 1102. Going to be fun!
