    That slide is actually pretty cool. I wonder if that and Infrastructure Pro require having all the CE versions of the certs, or if the Good-For-Life will qualify? I certainly wouldn't want to renew my A+ and Net+ just to get that. That would be way too expensive.

    Looks cool! I can see many employers requiring junior analyst to require this cert.

    @Ertaz why would you post this and do this to me. I now have to go for my CASP to complete the Security Tri-Fecta. I already have the A+, N+, S+ so I go the infrastructure covered. Now with my CSA+ I am one cert from the Security Tri-Fecta. Ahhh the horror

    Whatever gets people to go after more of their certs...

    Ah Marketing...

    Please dear God, let the DoD replace CEH with CSA+ for the CNDSP positions, amen.

    That's all I have to say.

    When I passed Security+ CE in 2015 it "Upgraded" my A+ from 2003 and Network+ from 2006 to the CE versions, as long as I keep my Security+ CE I will Automatically keep the A+ CE and Network+ CE.

    Yeah, I thought it was very interesting in my case. When I passed the new Security+ recently, it didn't do anything with my previous certs. It still lists my GFL A+, Net+, and Sec+ with no expiration dates.

    Good to know that was my concern.

    As I have A+,N+,S+, Sec+, CSA+, CASP ...
    Is this mean I will have 2 multi-certs: Infrastructure Pro and Cybersecurity Expert?

    8570 only exists as a grandfathered chart now. 8140 has taken over for all new contracts going forward. CEH still has a strong presence, but it's not the end-all be-all that it was for CND on 8570icon_thumright.gif

    Here's the part that Frustrates me,

    I have A+ce, CCENT, and CSA+. I'm nowhere near either of the Tiers. If I was going to do another CompTIA cert, I certainly wouldn't want to backtrack and get the Sec+.

    I'd be stuck getting two certs in either category, from the looks of it.

    I guess I don't see the point (from an employers POV) in requiring someone to take Sec+, CSA+, AND CASP. If you have a Sec+, it pretty much covers CSA+; it renews it in their requirements anyway. For those that follwoed the pathway directtly and drank all of the CompTIA kool-aid, it'd be nice, but I hope that an employer would realize that I don't have "CompTIA Security Expert" because I skipped Sec+ and just did CSA+ and CASP
  • EnderWigginEnderWiggin Member Posts: 551 ■■■■□□□□□□
    I can't see this being something that employers will pick up as a requirement. If anything, it'll be motivation for people early in their careers to get all three of the "Infrastructure" certs to have that extra designation. It just makes it look prettier to people whom have A+ and Net+, and see that they'll get two new things rather than one for getting Sec+.

    I actually got an email survey with CompTIA exploring a penetration testing certification a few weeks ago. That would probably be the better replacement, but I did like the CSA.

    That would be sweet.

    Yes. You will qualify for both.

    If you renew your Net+ your A+ gets automatically renewed.

    Is that true for the non-CE "Good for Life" versions of the certifications? I know it works that way for the CE versions, just curious as to whether that works for the older versions of the certifications.

    Yeah I haven't seen much about it. They had an early August convention for CompTIA, so I figured we might see more about it afterward, but nothing so far.
  • ErtazErtaz Member Posts: 934 ■■■■■□□□□□
    Yeah, "Summer" officially ends on the 22nd. We'll see if CompTIA makes good on the time frame.
