    I would have like this idea when I started to do certification.. It is is a very "RPG"/gaming way to organise them. I got A+, Network+, Linux+ a long time ago(between 2003-2005) and they are good for life. I would not do them again to gain new title. I will surely do some LPI/LFCS/RHCSA one day to have better Linux certification. For their security track, I am already CISSP, I will surely add CCSP and OSCP eventually, so I dont see the advantage to do Sec+, CSA+, CASP+.

    These new cert titles are a bit too alphabet soup for me. I liked the name "CompTIA Trifecta." So I'm just gonna roll my own.

    I'm now CSPM! Woo hoo!!

    Need one for the soft skill side of things...

    A/N/S/L/P+


    On a side note, does anyone else feel like the CompTIA certs are a little too similar to the a/s/l of days gone by....?

    A multi-CCIE I know didn't get a job once because he only had a CCIE in the specialty that they wanted, not a CCNA... I'm afraid CompTIA's decision might encourage more situations like this.

That would mean a possible dethroning of the CISSP in DoD contracting. Nobody is looking at the bigger picture here it seems.
    There is absolutely no way this falls into IAM3.

    Ouch, isn't a CCIE a higher certification than the CCNA? I should check these out. Anyways, I think for stackable certifications, it would be a good idea to show also the linkage or linked certs for each of them on the resume or something like that, in order to lessen the confusion.

    BTW, nice avatar, mmm... coffee or hot chocolate...

    So I called CompTIA and asked them the purpose of them doing the stackable certifications. I was told that it is a new model they are going to and don't plan on making changes anytime soon. That said, it is meant to have a more appropriate title for skills obtained from their certifications along with making HR hiring easier to find better candidates. PDF only version of these stackable certifications there is no physical kit/wallet card.

    Who knows. It may take off it may not. If I start to see this for job postings, then I will tailor my resume accordingly to have the stackable certifications.

    Yeah, CCIE is much higher than CCNA.

    and it's coffee... A friend of mine sent me that picture after a party when I saw a tarantula, and decided to lay down with it and take a romantic photo as a joke.

    Thanks for asking.

    Useless Observation: I downloaded the logos, CSIS is bigger than CIOS and CNIP.

    A+ really is a terrible title for a cert. Would be nice to get away from using the + symbol too.

    Maybe they chose the name as a marketing decision. Any alphabetical lists of certs would put that near the top. I know that used to be common for phone book listings.

    This is the real reason they're doing this lol. Make more money and clear out the "good-for-life" certification holders so that they're all on the 3-5 year CE renewal plan. $$

    Interesting. I just logged into my CompTIA account and I now see I have three additional certificates. I am now CSIS, CNIP and CIOS. I wonder if these will come to be looked at as something like a CompTIA version of an MCSE? It does seem like a cool way to consolidate the certs. Instead of saying I am A+, Network+ and Security+ all I have to say is that I am CSIS.

    I highly doubt that will happen. The Microsoft tests are each a different piece of one larger certification. FOr example, one test on configuring the operating system, and another on administrating the operating system. It's all about that one particular OS. Whereas CompTIA certs each have their own unique subject.

    It's less about getting good for life people to cough up money and much more about CompTIA appearing on this list, for whatever the financial/political motivations:
    https://www.ansi.org/Accreditation/c...201&statusID=4

    Interesting observations: Microsoft is NOT on this list. They pulled out in 2012:
    https://www.ansi.org/Accreditation/c...wals?prgID=201

    None of the still good for life certs are on that list, nor are any of the new stackable acronyms.

    Well most places don't see the lifetime certs as sufficient anymore anyway, they will want you to go back and get the CE version. The DoD has been doing that since they came out with the CE versions.

    I mean... imagine if someone said: "I have an MCSE", but it was from Windows 2000. Would that still be relevant vs someone who has a MCSE for Server 2016?

    Side note, I just logged in and mine shows this because my Sec+ is not a CE:
