CompTIA has recently begun including performance based questions for several of its exams in addition to the standard multiple choice questions. The current list of exams that contain performance based questions are: A+ (220-801 and 220-802), Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP), Network+ (N10-005), and Security+ (SY0-301).

 

Candidates are required to perform a specific task or solve a problem in simulated IT environments in Performance-based questions. When the candidate completes the required steps, the task is considered accomplished.

 

A comprehensive certification prep course can help you to prepare thoroughly for the actual certification exam. uCertify courses include performance-based question in the practice tests to help candidates prepare for CompTIA exams.

CompTIA is providing an opportunity for IT Professionals to enroll in the CompTIA Continuing Education (CE) program on or before December 31, 2012. This offer is limited to only those certified in 2010 or earlier in CompTIA A+, CompTIA Network+ and/or CompTIA Security+  certifications. Candidates who earned their CompTIA certification in 2011 are already enrolled in the CE program.

Candidates certified in 2010 or earlier are considered “certified for life,” but they can enroll in the CompTIA Continuing Education Program to further demonstrate their knowledge and skills to their employers who may require such a certification.

If the “certified for life” individual is not enrolled in the Continuing Education program before Dec 31, 2012, they will need to retake and pass the corresponding current certification exam in order to achieve the CE certification.

Continuing education credits can be awarded within a three-year period through a variety of activities that show an understanding of relevant industry knowledge.

Candidates who are “certified for life” must follow these steps to enroll in the CE program:

1. Log in to the CompTIA Candidate Database https://www.certmetrics.com/comptia/login.aspx
