    Default Network+ renew A+ a second time?

    I am looking to taking the current Network+ again. I have been out of IT for a while and my certs are about to expire. If I take the Network+ again, will that still renew my A+ also?

    i apologize if this has been posted a bunch before.

    With CompTIA, when you renew your highest certification, all lower certifications are renewed...Network+ is higher than A+...just make sure you do it prior to your expiration date.

    Does it renew them for three years again?

    The certification will be valid for 3 years from the day you pass.

    What were you doing in IT previously?

    Taking the Network+ again would do it. That's also the most expensive and difficult way to renew those two certs. There are much easier ways to earn CEUs but you'll need to find 30 hours of acceptable activities.

    Same. Passing the higher level certification instantly renews all of your current lower certifications. Once their expired though you'll have to take them over again. This is a little pyramid that shows which Comptia certifications will renew old ones.

    It will renew it, but I wouldn't worry so much about it. If you keep feeling that you need to renew your CompTIA certs every 3 years you will hold yourself back. It doesn't make much difference whether you have the 701 or the 901 etc, your CV/resume will still show that you have done the exam.

    I've never met an employer who has asked to see the most recent A+ exam number on my CV. They still value what you have achieved. Plus I'd rather spend my time now focusing on more challenging and valuable certs from Microsoft and Cisco. My CompTIA certs are set to expire in 2019, and I don't have any plans to renew them. By that time I would have done my MCSE and maybe my Redhat exam, and if an employer is going to worry more about my A+ being renewed, then they aren't worth my time.

    My Network+ expires in 2020 and I have no plans to renew it or do another CompTIA cert.

    My aim by 2020 is to at least have a CCNA or two and a MCSA, maybe higher level certifications depending if I have a more technical position.

    Have you considered getting your Sec+?

    It also renews your Net+, which renews your A+.

    I always prefer to renew lower certs by simply getting higher certs when possible.

    CCNA will renew your Network + as long as you pay the renewal fee. You don't have to take it again or take another CompTIA test to renew it.
