CompTIA Mobility+

Best Mobility Certifications For 2017
By , Mary Lemons

CompTIA's certifications are highly respected and often serve as prerequisites for other certification programs.

Mobility+ is geared toward mobility architects and engineers, network administrators and security professionals who implement or work in mobile computing environments. A single exam covers over-the-air technologies (Wi-Fi, cellular, Bluetooth and RF), network infrastructure, mobile device management, Internet of Things, security and troubleshooting. Like the A+ and Network+ certs, Mobility+ requires candidates to cultivate broad knowledge of many subtopics. That means building knowledge of and skills in protocols, the OSI model, policies, bandwidth and quality of service, antennas, propagation theory, device interoperability, lifecycles, testing, encryption, security mitigation strategies and more.

Think of Mobility+ as a foundational credential that can be used to move up to higher level certifications in just about any type of networking field because it requires a sound grasp of mobile networking best practices and troubleshooting techniques.

The Mobility+ certification is valid for three years. Credential holders can keep their skills current and maintain certification through continuing education without having to retake the current exam.
