The IT industry is moving towards an increasing awareness of environmentally sound techniques. Candidates for the FC0-GR1 CompTIA Green IT certification exam must have the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to implement technologies which are friendly on the environment within an organization’s infrastructure.
The exam contains 30 questions. The highest possible score on the test is a 900, and candidates must earn at least a 705 in order to pass. Candidates will be given 60 minutes to complete the test. The exam will test current IT methodologies related to green IT programs, knowledge of cost-cutting power management, and awareness of global organizations which mandate green standards and regulations. Additionally, candidates will be examined on their ability in developing, deploying, and calculating true ROI for green IT initiatives.
Prior to taking the test, CompTIA recommends that candidates have least 18 months of related work experience. The certification is intended for individuals who have positions that allow them to make decisions in a company’s infrastructure, or who are responsible for implementing green IT initiatives. These roles may include, but are not limited to, IT managers, data center managers, IT technicians, and system administrators.
It’s also recommended that candidates earn both the CompTIA A+ and CompTIA Server+ certifications prior to taking the exam. Proper exam preparation through ExamTrace and the authorized CompTIA training programs can help candidates review their technical knowledge.
