Mobility+ Certification from CompTIA
CompTIA is vendor-neutral certification organization with 17 certification exams in PC support, networking, servers, convergence, training, Linux, security, IT sales, green IT and more. They have been delivering certification exams for more than 15 years.
Some of the well known networking exams are below.
Network+ – “The exam covers network technologies, installation and configuration, media and topologies, management, and security. Candidate job roles include network administrator, network technician, network installer, help desk technician and IT cable installer.”
Security+ – “CompTIA Security+ is an international, vendor-neutral certification that demonstrates competency in: Network security, Compliance and operational security, Threats and vulnerabilities, Application, data and host security, Access control and identity management, and Cryptography.”
With wireless and mobility exploding the demand for a CompTIA certification focused on wireless is a great idea. The new certification will be called Mobility+ (I love the focus on mobility and not just wireless or 802.11).
They are currently looking for mobility experts to help create the exam. If you are interested in helping go here and apply.
“CompTIA is looking for IT professionals who have experience in wireless networking, mobility architecture, mobile security (both Wi-Fi and R/F) and policy, and experience in troubleshooting mobile devices to be involved in creating our CompTIA Mobility+ certification exam.
The purpose of the Job Task Analysis workshop is to identify areas of competence required for a certification, and to ensure that the examination objectives are relevant to job roles and activities for the target audience.
Potential Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) must have strong knowledge and experience in deploying and managing corporate Wi-Fi and/or R/F networks, including device management, architecture, security, and device management — preferably in a multi-vendor environment. They should also have understanding of wireless networking operations and mobile devices and should have at least five years of IT experience, with at least two years of technical hands-on experience with wireless and mobile devices.
SMEs will receive a $300 a day stipend for the 4-day workshop, plus $300 to defray travel expenses and have their hotel lodging paid by CompTIA, after their acceptance and full participation in the program.”
