CompTIA i-Net+ Certification Will Retire December 31, 2007.

OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill. -- The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) announced today that it will retire the CompTIA i-Net+ certification exam on December 31, 2007.

The exam will be available until March 31, 2008 in Japan and Korea.

CompTIA i-Net+ was established in January of 2000 as a benchmark certification for individuals who maintained and developed Web-related content and applications. In recent years, these job roles have evolved. Market research and feedback from certification users indicates that the number of Internet-only jobs roles has declined, and IT professionals engaged in the development of Web-related applications have taken on additional, broader responsibilities. CompTIA offers a number of other certifications that are appropriate for these IT professionals.

The pending retirement does not affect the 20,000 individuals worldwide who have achieved CompTIA i-Net+ certification. Their certifications remain valid and they will still have access to CompTIA Career ID services.
