The CompTIA A+ 2006 exams expires on February 28, 2010. I repeat, if you are studying for 220-601, 602, 603, or 604 you have no more than 20 days from the day of this blog post to take and pass the exams. After this date the only acceptable exams will be the 2009 series. (220-701, 702)
Potential Certifiers who have not begun studying yet, or are only getting started should begin with the 2009 exams, but this should come as a wake up call to any who have been preparing and studying and were just waiting to feel ready.
If your school is a member of CompTIA’s Education to Careers (E2C) program, the A+ 2006 exam expiration date is extended to July 31, 2010. Otherwise, time is almost up.
