When you’re learning IT technologies with a vendor, you’re often getting high-level concepts and product-specific training. However, CompTIA training is vendor-neutral, which means it validates you know how to configure, deploy, secure, and manage IT technologies generally.
As a result, CompTIA certification training is universally applicable to any product. Typically, learners who are new to IT pursue CompTIA certifications. However, CompTIA also has advanced and professional certifications as well. From the foundational CompTIA A+ to the CySA+, every IT professional will benefit from the knowledge in this vendor-neutral training.
CompTIA training courses provide foundational knowledge for a wide variety of IT roles including desktop support, networking administrator, cloud administrator, and IT project manager.
