Since earning A+ certification in October of this year, I've started working in a corporate IT environment, and learning more every day. As part of my continuing education, I decided to pursue further certifications. Today, I completed a CySA+ training course, in addition to the Network+ and Security+ training courses I've also recently completed. I'm now working on PenTest+ training, and hope to finish it by the end of January 2019. Once all four are done, I plan to do a more in-depth study and review for each, and schedule the respective exams, starting with Network+. Ultimately, I'd like to get into cyber security and penetration testing. With the help of Total Seminars, Udemy, and CompTIA, I think I'll be ready.
I am very happy to share that Wednesday morning I was offered and accepted an IT Specialist position in Erie, PA! I want to thank everyone that helped me along the way, especially PA CareerLink, which enabled me to earn CAPM and CompTIA A+ certifications over the last 5 months.
I'm now working on Network+ and Security+ certifications.
One step closer to IT Project Management.
Onward and upward!
Following a successful attempt at passing the 220-901 exam last week, today I successfully passed the CompTIA A+ 220-902 exam, earning an A+ certification!
Given my previous knowledge and past experience relative to the exam objectives, I felt that about 70% of the course material was stuff that I already knew, which left about only 30% of new information I had to learn. I think that helped quite a bit and gave me a clear advantage.
The primary study sources I utilized for exam preparation were LinkedIn Learning's learning path "Become a CompTIA A+ Certified Technician" and a few practice exams from Udemy.
If anyone is looking for help on preparing for the exam, feel free to reach out.
Anyway, here it is!
