CompTIA Certification Testing
Why CompTIA Certifications?
CompTIA’s vendor neutral certifications are the starting point for a career in IT. They show employers you have the skills to do the job, regardless of the vendor hardware or software. Many of these exams are also prerequisites or electives for more advanced vendor certifications. Earning a CompTIA certification proves you have the right skills, and is the starting place for a career in IT.
