The new lab title has just been released to the Practice Labs Store. Anyone looking to start a new career in IT or an IT Professional who wants to keep their certifications up to date, this is the title for you.

The CompTIA 220-1102 certification is an entry-level certification aimed at students wanting to gain entry into the IT industry and the first stepping-stone to multiple IT career pathways.

Compared to the previous version of the CompTIA 220-1002, the four domains remained the same; Operating Systems, Security, Software Troubleshooting and Operational Procedures. What's new in 1102?

  • You'll have the chance to dive deeper into different Operating Systems' functionalities, specifically Windows 10 and 11.

  • This new title focuses more on Remote Desktop connectivity and how it works in Windows Home Edition. 

  • There are additional Command Line Tools added for you to explore its functionality.
  • Explore the different tools for MAC and Linux Operating Systems.

CompTIA has stated that the objectives for the new A+ have continued to move with the times and are more relevant in the new post-Covid working world. They cover this by focusing on methods/tools such as VPN, Virtual network computer (VNC), Microsoft Remote Assistance (MSRA), and Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM). Additionally, more objectives have been added, focusing on third-party tools such as screen-sharing software, video-conferencing software, file transfer software and desktop management software.
