We’ll Help You Succeed

At CompTIA Tech Career Academy, our goal is to help you land—and succeed in—an IT job. We train students with little-to-no information technology experience and give you the technical and soft skills to launch your career. Although we cannot guarantee placement for our graduates, we will help you connect to the right employers when your training is done. Distance education (online learning) is available as an option to students, and our IT-Ready Technical Support program is accepting students now.
