New Certificate style from CompTIA

Has anyone seen the new certificates being sent to certification holders from CompTIA? I was pleasantly surprised to receive a very nice certificate (not the cheap printing and paper) and plastic card. :D

They look significantly more professional than the older one I received for my Network+ earlier this year. I will post some photos later.

    A few days ago, I received my Sec+ certificate in the mail.

    It's a step-up in terms of quality (heavier paper), but I was wondering why it wasn't 8.5x11. I assume the smaller paper size is more internationally friendly?

    I didn't even know that they updated it, I would really like to see it.

    It is really difficult to get letter size stationary outside USA.

    Looks alot better, once i get my Server+ cert, this will be the 3rd change of Comptia certs that I have (A+ & Network+ were one style, security+ was another and now this one) :)

    I just noticed something,

    My ID is COMP001001769288
    Yours COMP001008886608

    Does that mean 7,117,320 received Comptia certificates between 2003 and the time you got your first certificate?

    Mine is COMP00100401XXXX, and I got it in 2005. I guess ~2M in two years is reasonable.

    Hi

    Would I be able to get my paper inkjet style cert reprinted to this new version?

    I don't think so, they have used those numbers for other things in the past, membership numbers for one. For a while they gave you one even if you failed because they tracked fails and they showed on the system. For a couple of years you could end up with multiple numbers because they did not sync prometric and vue.

    I had two numbers for two years until I decided to sync them up about 8 years ago. I don't think I would put much stock in the number system, but maybe the new guy that took over is fixing all this.

    Not prelaminated, it's a hard plastic like my Debit Card.

    I have to say I like them better than the last ones, much more professional looking.


    The one I have is the purple and flashy design, and looks more like an ad for tech school than a certification.

    I'll have to wait until I either take the Linux+ or update my Network+.

    I might re-order my A+, Security+, and Linux+ cards if my Server+ card comes pre-laminated.

    Free Microsoft Training: Microsoft Learn
    Free PowerShell Resources: Top PowerShell Blogs
    Free DevOps/Azure Resources: Visual Studio Dev Essentials

    Let it never be said that I didn't do the very least I could do.

    I might just go ahead and reorder my Sec+ and Net+... I guess it depends if I get any more CompTIA certs like Linux+.

    I wish I could reorder a new version of my C|EH. It looks like an ad for an antidepressant.

    Where do you go to re-order the certificate, because I don't see the option anywhere on the CompTIA website.

    Of course, when you do a search on their website and follow their instructions to order a certificate, the option isn't there anywhere...
    Passed on 2/20: Network+, Score - 840
    Next: Security+ and Server+

    Hope my A+ Cert will look like that! Nice stuff!
    A+, 70-270, and working on 70-290 now. Certs are good.

    i reordered my A+ and N+...and you're right, it's NOWHERE on the website. I had to email their support staff, write in the comments sections - asking them how to do it, they replied to me with a link. You could probably get it a little faster if you can call.

    Anyway, I have to say I like previous version graphics and design...it was just lame that it was on a peice of paper. This one is like a credit card, but with a very bland design.

    It's not important to add reptutation points to others, but to be nice and spread good karma everywhere you go.

    Is there a charge for re-ordering your certificates?
