CBT Nuggets is a proud CompTIA partner! As a partner to CompTIA, we offer learners the opportunity to earn pre-approved Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for qualifying Continuing Education (CE).

CBT Nuggets offers pre-approved CEUs for five CompTIA certifications:

  • CompTIA A+ (broken into two CBT Nuggets courses: 220-901 and 220-902)

  • CompTIA Network+ N10-006

  • CompTIA Security+ SY0-401

  • CompTIA CASP CAS-001 (CBT Nuggets does not offer training for this certification, however, if you hold this cert, our CompTIA courses will count for continuing education units toward maintaining it.)

How It Works

When learners earn a CompTIA certification, such as the A+, Network+, Security+, and so on, they are automatically enrolled in the Continuing Education program. Learners have three years from the date certified to either retake the most recent version of the certification exam or successfully complete the CompTIA Continuing Education program to earn recertification.

There are three options to renew certifications:

  1. Pass the most current version of the exam for the certification held;

  2. Earn a qualifying higher-level CompTIA (or another vendor) certification. (For example, a learner who has earned her CompTIA A+ certification can earn recertification of her A+ by earning a CompTIA Network+ certification.); or

  3. Complete Continuing Education (CE) activities and earn a sufficient number of Continuing Education Units (CEUs).

Increasingly, learners are choosing to participate in Continuing Education to renew their certifications. Learners can complete a variety of online training from the pre-approved lists, available on the CompTIA website to earn recertification. As a CompTIA partner, CBT Nuggets courses for both CompTIA and non-CompTIA courses count toward recertification on a one-to-one ratio. One hour of video Nugget viewing equals one hour of CE credit. Every CompTIA course offered by CBT Nuggets is pre-approved, as well as many non-CompTIA courses.

Certificates of Completion

CBT Nuggets can provide certificates of completion for pre-approved courses at the request of the learner. Learners are then responsible to submit the Certificate of Completion to CompTIA for review and approval, but here's the good news: CBT Nuggets training content is pre-approved!

Exam Discount

As a CompTIA partner, CBT Nuggets has the privilege of offering coupon codes for CompTIA exam discounts! The coupon provides learners with a 10% discount on the test registration cost. Every little bit helps with exam prices ranging from $194 to $402 (USD)!
