...and advance in your government career and beyond.
Whether you’re pursuing promotion points or want to prepare yourself for a rewarding career in the service and beyond, a CompTIA IT certification is the first step.

Meet DoD 8570.01 Mandated Requirements
In addition to a good career move, CompTIA certifications are a must for certain IT positions. The DoD Directive 8570.1M mandates all government personnel, civilians and contractors working on networks to receive industry IT credentials. CompTIA A+, CompTIA Network+ and CompTIA Security+ exams meet Directive 8570.1M requirements and can be taken at any DANTES Pearson VUE test site.
Pearson VUE delivers exams for all CompTIA certifications—including those that are mandated for military personnel and government contractors under DoD Directive 8570.1M.
