CompTIA A+ Certification Success Story: Garrett Hillyard

After Garrett Hillyard first earned his CompTIA A+ certification at age 12, he was determined to pass the new CompTIA A+ 220-901 and 220-902 exams on his first attempt. He did just that in December 2017 using the CompTIA A+ 220-901 and 220-902 Exam Cram from Pearson IT Certification and the quizzes, practice exams, real world scenario case studies, and other extensive prep tools included with the study guide.

Real-World Skills

Now age 15, Garrett proudly carries his wallet-sized A+ card every day. His family was waiting at a busy Subway restaurant when the POS network went down and a clerk notified customers that the restaurant could only accept cash payments. Garrett shared his A+ credentials and asked if he could provide some technical assistance. The network was back up and running within 10 minutes and Garrett enjoyed a free sub that evening from the very appreciative restaurant staff!

Garrett has stayed very busy in the years since his first certification working on custom computer builds, upgrades, and teaming up with his older brother Tristan to record videos of their projects. Tristan also recently passed the CompTIA A+ 220-901 and 220-902 exams to recertify and Garrett helped him study with daily quizzes. After Tristan’s last exam, the instructor at the Pearson testing center in Toronto invited them both to speak with students about their exam preparation experience and recommended study materials.
