Why CompTIA?

As a global non-profit trade association, CompTIA is unbiased. That alone gives our certifications enormous credibility, especially for entry-level job seekers like students.

Ask IT hiring managers why they regard CompTIA certifications so highly and they’ll tell you it’s because vendor-independent validation of technical skills matters a great deal.

As an academic institution, you can become a CompTIA authorised partner.

CompTIA CertMaster: Enhance your Curriculum

CertMaster provides students a tailored, adaptive learning experience that reduces study time and improves retention of knowledge acquired in the classroom. Better knowledge retention leads to improved student success.

CertMaster is designed to complement traditional instructor-led training. Its built-in learning management system allows instructors the ability to identify knowledge gaps – both at individual and classroom levels. This allows them to focus their instruction on content not yet mastered and how prepared the class is overall.
