Changes to the CompTIA A+ Certification 220-1001 1002 to 220-1101 1102
In addition to topics you might traditionally associate with tech support, the new CompTIA A+ emphasizes the technologies and skills IT pros need to support a hybrid workforce such as:
-Increased reliance on software as a service (SaaS) applications for remote work. More focus on troubleshooting and how to remotely diagnose and correct common software, hardware or connectivity problems.
-Focus on changing core technologies, from cloud virtualization and IoT device security to data management and scripting.
-Major operating systems, their use cases and how to keep them running properly.
-Basics of scripting so that help desk technicians and technical support specialists understand what they’re looking at when they encounter code.
While the previous series placed a large emphasis on the areas of security, cloud, networking and device connectivity, as well as on hardware, mobile and Windows, the new version focuses on the technologies and skills IT pros need to support a hybrid workforce, including increased reliance on software as a service (SaaS) applications for remote work to the changes from cloud virtualization and internet of things (IoT) device security to data management and scripting. There is also more on remote troubleshooting to correct common software, hardware or connectivity problems.

New approach to operational procedures
As with previous A+ Core 1 & Core 2 exam objectives, CompTIA’s certification considers how the IT profession is evolving. Since even entry-level technicians need to adapt to more complex environments, they need to understand operational procedures in various scenarios. Some of the Core 1 and 2 series changes focus on aspects like the importance of appropriate documentation and policies, as well as basic change-management best practices. You will learn to follow and embed best practices for environmental protection, safety, professionalism, and communication.
