Just got this in my email.

Be one of the first to earn CompTIA Mobility+ –
for free!

The era of BYOD (bring your own device) is here. Employees want to choose their own mobile device and companies are trying to support them. This puts tremendous responsibility on the IT department to ensure the devices integrate with the network and keep company data secure.

CompTIA Mobility+, planned to be available in late 2013, will certify that the successful candidate has the knowledge and skills required to understand and research capabilities of various mobile devices and aspects of over–the–air technologies.

As part of CompTIA’s high–stakes development process to ensure a statistically validated certification, CompTIA is offering a free Mobility+ beta for the first 400 people to register and take the exam. ( a $261 value).

When: Available now
Where: Pearson VUE testing centers
Beta exam number: MB1–001
Cost: Free
Promo Code:
MOB+Mkt beta

(utilize when registering for the exam to receive it for free)


Please Note:

Those who pass the exam will become CompTIA Mobility+ certified at the time the final exam launches in Q4, 2013.

If you are unable to test at your registered time, please click here to cancel at least 24 hours in advance. If you do not reschedule within 24 hours, you will be ineligible to register again. For complete cancelation policies for CompTIA exams, click here.

Study materials for the new version of the Mobility+ exam will not be available until the live exam launches later in 2013. View the objectives.

    Got my slot, wonder how this will stack up to CWNA. Was working on taking the CWNA in the next month so this should be a good warm up.

    I didn't receive an invite, but I definitely plan on taking Mobility+ and also the new Cloud+ when they are released. Hopefully they will be added to the CE program and will renew all of the "lesser" CompTIA certs.

    Go over the exam objectives. Basically it is:

    Over the air technologies 13%
    Network Infrastructure 15%
    Mobile Device Management 28%
    Security 20%
    Troubleshooting 24%

    I'm just not clear on what MDM they are talking about or where they have gotten their "best practices" from.
  • MiikeBMiikeB Member Posts: 301
    Eh, I could see where the knowledge is useful but I don't think the cert holds any value. I probably wouldn't even list it on my resume unless I was applying for a job at a MDM provider or the like.

    Knew this was coming. Before I left mobility was 40% of the incidents being called in. IMO eventually this will gain over 50% of the incidents that come through most standard service desk.

    I just took the exam yesterday. It's long (130 questions), but I guess that's to be expected with a beta.

    It's pretty straightforward. I wouldn't consider my experience all that extensive and I didn't feel stumped by too many of the questions.

    I received the following email from CompTIA yesterday, so take it sooner rather than later.

    "Currently there have been over 650 who have registered to take the exam and 81 have already taken it. In addition, more than 400 have scheduled to take the exam prior to June 30th, 2013."

    Thanks for the follow up.

    I took the test on Monday and it was long but as the other poster stated, nothing that was too tough. More troubleshooting questions than cellular technology questions. I was actually looking for more port questions as well. Anyone know how long the beta will last?

    Took this Beta today.

    First go of a CompTIA beta.

    Yes it's very trouble shooting based. if you've been on a helpdesk managing mobile devices and have a bit of general knowledge about general networking terms you won't struggle with it.

    The broad split seems to be between -
    -trouble shooting scenarios-
    - definitions / general knowledge on networking / mobile device terminology

    I went in with absolutely no preparation just doing it for kicks and I reckon I might stand half a chance of passing but we'll see in a few months.

    How do you get to know if you've passed or not for CompTIA betas ?

    If you were applying for a mid level support position at my former company this certification would help you out. Anything mobility or mobile apple or android is huge in mid level support. Obviously engineers and such it probably has less value for.
