In the event that you fail your first attempt at passing the ITF+ examination, CompTIA's retake policies are: In the event that you fail your first attempt at passing the CompTIA certification examination, CompTIA does not require a waiting period between the first and second attempt to pass such examination. However, if you need a third or subsequent attempt to pass the examination, you shall be required to wait for a period of at least fourteen calendar days from the date of your last attempt before you can retake the exam. If a candidate has passed an exam, he/she cannot take it again without prior consent from CompTIA. A test result found to be in violation of the retake policy will not be processed, which will result in no credit awarded for the test taken. Repeat violators will be banned from participation in the CompTIA Certification Program. Candidates must pay the exam price each time they attempt the exam. CompTIA does not offer free re-tests or discounts on retakes.

The CompTIA IT Fundamentals certification is considered good for life and does not need to be renewed.
