The A+ and Network+ Certifications will bolster any resume. Even if you have experience working in the computer hardware or networking fields, adding a certification is looked upon very favorably. Having one or both of these certs says to your employer that you are serious about improving your skill set; in turn, your employer will take you more seriously.
— shows your superiors that you are a motivated professional
— certified employees have salaries roughly 5-15% higher than their non-certified peers
— open new career paths within your existing company
— A+/Net+ classes are prerequisites for many of the intermediate and advanced IT certifications.
Becoming A+/Net+ certified is a big step in the right direction whether you are trying to enter a new career field in IT or simply wishing to improve your status in your existing field.
