The time has come for another CompTIA A+ syllabus update. CompTIA update their courses every three years to represent the fact that the times, they are-ah changin’. (Say that like a pirate, you won’t regret it.)
If we go back to the last update from 2016 – the 900 series update – Internet of Things and relevant devices were introduced and ransomware protections became familiar, which were quite timely considering the “WannaCry” ransomware attacks that dominated headlines in 2017.
Fast forward to the start of 2019 and CompTIA have introduced important tools and changes with the future of computing in mind: IoT has been expanded with device hardware and connectivity being addressed, the introduction of scripting, and cloud and virtualisation getting a dedicated exam domain – to name a few.
The old 900 series focused on supporting users’ access to application and data needed to complete a task from any given device. While the newly added, and named, Core Series focuses on enabling end users and devices to securely access data needed to complete a task. The GDPR data privacy regulation has also been added to the syllabus to represent the biggest change in data privacy laws since 1995.
Coverage in the new syllabus includes:

After the advice given by the Government, NHS and WHO, we have taken the appropriate measures to ensure the safety of all our delegates attending our classrooms and events. This has been, and always will be, our number one priority.
We wanted to reassure you that all our scheduled classrooms and events will still be running. However, we will be now be offering them Virtually.
This decision to move all learning to Virtual and to offer support remotely has been taken to protect delegates and trainers. This allows delegates to continue their learning and for trainers to maintain the same level of service.
Because the situation is changing daily, we will do our best to provide you with the most up-to-date information, and this will be communicated via our website or email.
For anyone with queries regarding classrooms you are about to attend, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or +44 (0) 02 3198 7706.
Please stay safe.
