CompTIA Certification Testing
Programs & Certification Information
As the global IT industry association, CompTIA builds vendor-neutral certifications that measure foundational skills. They show employers you have the skills to do the job, regardless of the vendor of the hardware or software product. Many of these exams are also prerequisites or electives for more advanced vendor certifications. It really is the starting point for a career in IT. Plus, earning a certification not only proves you have the right skills, but also the dedication and commitment to your career to continue learning.
Currently, CompTIA offers certifications in IT helpdesk/remote support, networking, security, servers, cloud computing, mobility, project management, technical training, Linux, storage, digital imaging and management, and healthcare IT. See Certification.CompTIA.org for complete certification information.
Effective June 15, 2015, the CompTIA IT Fundamentals exam (FC0-U51; FC0-Z51) will no longer be available for sale. In an effort to better serve individuals who are interested in pursuing a career in information technology, CompTIA is evaluating how to best position the exam to reach a broader audience. The exam will remain available for testing for those candidates who have already scheduled to take the exam or have previously purchased a voucher.
