    Default Should I get my a+?

    I have my net+ and my security+ and I'm studying for my CASP. Is it worth getting my a+?
    Thanks!

    Short answer: No

    Caveat: unless you have no IT experience or are trying to transition into IT and are applying to entry level IT helpdesk or IT support type positions.

    Do have IT experience right now? Do you understand the topics that are on the A+?

    If you answer yes to those I would say no.

    I've seen billions of job listings requiring Security+. While I haven't seen any that required Network+, I have seen a few listings that say Network+ is desirable. I have seen a few jobs listings stating that A+ is required. I'm not talking about entry level jobs, either.

    If you are wondering whether to get A+...

    Just go job hunting at indeed, monster, usajobs, etc. Find jobs that you really would like to work. See if they mention A+

    Basically what everyone else is suggesting:

    Yes if you have 0 IT exp or are not currently in an IT role

    No if you are in IT and are looking to move a head.

    The A+ will get your resume through the resume filters for Desktop Support/Helpdesk type jobs.
