We’re Mission Driven

Our mission is to unlock people’s potential by helping them launch and grow their careers in information technology. As a non-profit, we train and prepare adults for certification and success in IT jobs to address an industry shortage of skilled IT professionals, a shortage noted by the National Science Foundation. Our sole motivation is to help students land and thrive in IT jobs in order to grow the tech workforce. 

CompTIA Tech Career Academy is a nonprofit subsidiary of Creating IT Futures Foundation, a 501(c)3 charitable organization. Creating IT Futures, in turn, is a subsidiary of the nonprofit, international tech trade association, CompTIA, headquartered in Downers Grove, Illinois.
