5 Reasons to Choose CompTIA Tech


Our Motivation

As a non-profit, our bottom line isn’t money, it’s making you ready for the tech workforce. We only succeed if you succeed.


Been There, Done That

CompTIA is a leader in IT certifications, as stated by other trainers such as Global Knowledge, and millions have earned our certifications to advance their careers.


All the Skills

If you start an IT job with nothing but technical know-how, you’re more likely to fail, as noted by industry publications such as Tech Republic. So we also teach the other “soft skills” critical for success.


Right Teacher, Right Pace

Our instructors have both industry experience and certified teaching skills. Our live courses move at a pace designed for beginners.


Serious Career Support

Career guidance, resume building, interview prep, and connections to potential employers will help you transition from the classroom to the job.


We connect our graduates to 100+ employer partners nationwide to fill their IT help desk jobs.
