I just found out the Comptia A+, Network+ and Security+ is valid for only 3 years. The A+ course that cost me a shinny gold coin and was advertised as lifetime certification, expired. I was A+ certified in 1999 so Comptia is telling me my certificatin paper is only good to wipe my ***. I can't afford to be taking a entry level test every 3 years and I won't. That's just another way for Comptia to make money in a down economy. How about Comptia dig in my back pocket and scratch my *** because I'm tired of scratching my head!
