How much does it cost to get A+ Certified for computers? How long does it take? I’m looking for averages.
I passed it a couple years ago. There are two tests (Hardware and Windows). It was paid for by my company, but if I remember correctly it was either $45 a test or $90 a test.
Tests are timed and I think you have an hour for each. You don’t have to take both at the same time. You could take one and come back a month later and take the other. There is a statute of limitations of about a 3 months I think.
How long it takes to study is up to you. I was doing helpdesk support and just came out of college so I was able to pass with minimal study. If your not already working in the field I would think its a good bit tougher to pass without knowing all the little tidbits that you pick up.
Assuming you are in the US, it costs $139 per test. The test is now adaptive, so the time can vary according to how many questions you need to determine if you pass or fail. See the above link for full details.
