Introduction

For A+ certification, the examinees must pass both the examination and the A+ Operation System Technologies (formally known as A+ DOS/Windows) examination. The Core Hardware examination measures essential competencies for entry-level PC Hardware service technician with six months of on-the-job experience. The examinees must demonstrate basic knowledge of installing, configuring, upgrading, troubleshooting, and repairing microcomputers systems at the standard defined by this test specification.

The skills and knowledge measured by this examination are derived from an industry-wide and worldwide job task analysis, which was validated through a survey of almost 2,000 A+ certified professionals. The results of the survey are used in weighting the domains and ensuring that weighting is a representative of the relative importance of that content to the job required of a service technician with six months on-the-job experience. The intent is to certify individuals in a body of knowledge that is identified and accepted as the baseline of foundation of any entry-level PC technician.

The results of the job task analysis and survey can be found in the fallowing report: CompTIA A+ Certification Core Hardware and OS Technologies examinations Job Task Analysis. This report is available for distribution.

NOTE: This examination blueprint for the A+ Core Hardware examination includes the weighting, test objective and should not be construed as a comprehensive listing of all the content of this examination.

Table 1 summarizes the domains measured by this examination and the extent to which they are represented in the examination.
