Certification Brothers

Posted by TestOut Staff on

It is a little known fact that there is a THIRD Jonas brother. Actually, there is even a fourth Jonas brother. His name is Frankie and he's about a decade younger than his more famous older siblings. He is also a musician, however, unlike with some famous brothers, where they do not all follow the same path in life. Mark and Donnie Wahlberg, for example, are both musicians and actors, whereas Paul Wahlberg is a chef and owns a restaurant.

Brothers gotta have a cool handshake

Getting back to the Jonas Brothers, however, everyone knows about Nick Jonas and Joe Jonas, because they are the "hot" Jonas Brothers. Nick Jonas, for example, married actress and former Miss World winner Priyanka Chopra and played a supporting role opposite Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. Joe Jonas married Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner and had a supporting role opposite Adam Sandler in Hotel Transylvania 3.

By contrast, Kevin Jonas, to borrow an analogy from the excellent rock-and-roll movie Almost Famous, is the "out of focus" guy on the Jonas Brothers concert merch tee-shirt. Kevin Jonas married a hairdresser who he met at the beach and played himself on the seventh season of Celebrity Apprentice. Like, sure, A for effort, Kev, but you just aren't in the same league as the other two. And that's OK. Even the Osmonds couldn't all be Donny.

The point is that sometimes there's a natural order of things, both in life and in certification. (Also that sometimes good things come in threes.) Take CompTIA certifications. You've got Security+ and Network+, which are sort of like Nick and Joe Jonas. They're the hottie brothers. A+ is like Kevin Jonas: It's the oldest brother, and sure, maybe we wouldn't know about the other brothers in the same way that we do if there hadn't been an A+ first.

The good thing is that, just like the Jonas Brothers are a package deal — they even broke up in 2013, but then they got back together, released a new album, and even wrote a joint memoir — you can make A+, Network+, and Security+ a package deal when you purchase our CompTIA training bundle. (It even includes Linux+ training, which is sort of the Frankie Jonas of CompTIA certifications.) TestOut CE: We aren't breaking up the Jonas Brothers.
