    Safe to assume this is a lifetime certification?

    Hello,

    YES I have called comptia and they said it is a lifetime certification. It is part of the STRATA certification series. Strata certification are lifetime certifications.

    Default Voucher

    Thanks to zaxbysauce for the insight. I bought the voucher and have been trying to self-educate. I passed A+ end of July and with that fresh, would like to get this one done soon. Just a matter of time before Keiser, Fortis, Concorde and the like will be offering preparatory instruction to get on the new wave of HIT.

    Make sure to go over common Sec+ stuff as well, as it had a decent amount of that on that on there. Especially as it relates to handling PHI.

    Wow...I'm actually impressed with the exam objectives.

    I have experience working in a hospital IT department and this exam covers alot of good information. I think hiring managers who value certification and keep up with new stuff would be impressed by a desktop tech with this cert.

    Everyone needs to have an understanding of the laws. It falls on your manager usually to ensure these are enforced but the technician is the first line of defense. They can't be checking up on you 24/7.

    Hi everyone!

    I know I'm a bit late to the converstation, but I have been searching high and low for study material for the HIT-001 exam. Has anyone been able to find any?

    Thanks!

The answer there was a phlebotomist trying to look at HIV results. So working at a hospital would give you that experience plus experience handling PHI and PII and working with HIPAA which are also big parts of the test.
    This sounds similar to the Green IT exam I just took last week. No books out and nothing you can look over. I've worked in a hospital before a long long time ago and also had to utilized HIPPA in a job I had doing IT work at the VA... can you think of anything else one would need before going to take the exam? I just may take it for the hell of it...

    After going to take the Strata IT Fundamentals and flunking it I found out the book you referenced is NOT for the EXAM.
    That is for the Healthcare community CompTia has. The only book that is out is from Element K books.

    Just found out ELEMENT K has the study book and practice CD in their books to help you study for the COMPTIA certifications. I've ordered two of them since I took the Strata and flunked it after doing self study and practice exams from places like U Certify. It appears the exam changed or another focus was added. 49 was needed to pass out of 70 questions and I got 37, only because of areas I did not study that was included within my material. Going back within 2 weeks for both! Wish me luck!!!

    Did you ever take the exam? I found UCertify has practice questions and I've ordered them. Also there is a study book out by Element K as well for this one and Strata.

    I apologize for that link. I didn't realize it.

    Is element K reliable?

    Cisco Networking Academy has a Healthcare Information Networking course, I have the bookware for that. do you think this is similar? or should I just buy the element K option?

    The study material I picked up for it was Element K's book that just came out last week. They also give you a CD Rom in the back of the book to work with.

    Element K is CompTia Authorized. In fact on the front it has the CompTia logo with Element K/ CompTia Series so I think it should be ok.
    I would go with the Element K book. I picked the other one up for Strata and it's decent... I would rather study something in the ball park
    than waste another $100 plus bucks for the voucher to take the exam and pass because I did not have decent material. I've had that happen
    with Strata...

    Anyone else taken this? I am on the fence about whether or not I want to pursue it or not. I am already employed at a hospital and do not think I will be taking another position at one after I advanced past the position I am already in. Thinking about picking up a study book even if I do not take the test because more HIPAA knowledge is good.

    I work for one of the most prestigous hospitals in the world. I am thinking of looking into this certifications eventually. Sounds like a winner. I'm not sold on Strata or Green, but Healthcare has peaked my interest. Thanks for the discussion.

    N2IT, I don't think it's worth your time since you have security, network, server and A+, as it's just rehash of those topics. There are probably more worthwhile certs you could spend your time on.

    And so far the study materials are poor. I have a thread chronicling my experience.

    Hello everyone,

    I know I am very late, but I just joined this forum and was wondering if there are any study materials out there to prepare for the ComTIA Healthcare IT cert? The only one I keep coming across is not even out yet, http://www.amazon.com/CompTIA-Health...+it+technician

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    I'm starting to wonder why there is SO much overlap between the various CompTIA Certs. I mean, it's not like Network Administrators go out and get their Network+, PC technicians go and get A+, and Server administrators go get Server+ and call it a day.

    Most of us who are interested in CompTIA certs generally are interested in obtaining many of them so we can learn DIFFERENT topics, yet you see a lot of the same questions on all of the tests.

    Why not focus the Certs more on the actual topic of the Cert itself? I took Server+ yesterday and sort of feel like, there were maybe only half the questions on it related to Servers... does that really make sense to us? Shouldn't a Server exam be primarily focused on Servers?

    I understand that you Need to know basic concepts of various topics in order to be successful in the real world (i.e. Server Admins definitely need to know how PCs and Networking works) but at the same time, you probably won't ever need to do Network subnetting if you're a Server administrator. Even if you did for some reason, you could easily look up how to do it when needed.

    Just my $.02.

    Probably why you should only invest in the A+, Sec+, Net+ and none of the others (except maybe Linux+ and CASP). I've taken more than a half dozen of their tests and there is overlap in server, network, PC and security fundemantals/concepts.

    You get a little (very tiny) on say one of the specialized Cisco associate exams, but they don't review/rehash network fundemantals in CCNA Sec. But that's why the big money is in Cisco, M$, vmWare, Juniper, etc.
