Why Get CompTIA Certified?

CompTIA certification addresses performance-based topics and questions that prove you can think on your feet and solve problems in real-time.

01Strong Professional Profile

The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) is considered the world's leading technology association. Since its founding in 1982, CompTIA has set standards for certification in IT support, from hardware and devices to networks and cybersecurity.

02Better Job Prospects

CompTIA calls the A+, Network+ and Security+ sequence a "stacked" credential that validates baseline skills in the three disciplines: devices, networks and security. Each individual certification is considered an independent signal of competence in the area it addresses.

03Build Industry Knowledge

The A+, Network+ and Security+ certifications are sequential. A+ focuses on devices; Network+ is dedicated to the hardware, software and protocols for networking; and Security+ adds the layer of core security functions across devices, networks and the organizations that deploy them.
