    Default Does the A+ give you credit for any other exam?

    As I posted in the other forums. I am just trying to find out if the A+ gives you credit for towards any other exams (besides microsoft). Trying to make the most of what I already have..that is just my character.

    Thanks!

    Not sure of other certifications, but WGU will give you college credit towards a Bachelors degree.

    A+ certification counts as half a course toward your MCSA or MCSE line up. It must be coupled with Network+ for full credit.

    Except for the earlier MCSA/MCSE certifications, I don't know of any other places where the A+ gives you credit.

    However, your Security+ certification does give you credit for the (ISC)2 CISSP security certification if choose to pursue that route. Instead of five years experience, you only need four years of experience. https://www.isc2.org/credential_waiver/Default.aspx.

    I remember years ago when that started. At the time I rolled over my A+/Net+ to get both the CST and CNST but now they are expired. Did anyone ever find any value in the CST or CNST? I am not trying to bash the certifications but unfortunately I found no value in them.
