  •  Grants available to those who qualify
  •  Gateway to a career in tech





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


You May Qualify for a Grant

For much less than the cost of a college degree, CompTIA Tech Career Academy can provide the training you need to land and succeed in a great IT job. What you pay will vary depending on whether you receive financial assistance.

As a not-for-profit, our focus is not on making money—it’s on your success. And our tuition rates reflect that commitment. We believe tech careers should be accessible to anyone with a dream and passion to pursue them. Tuition for our IT-Ready Technical Support (Online) Program is $8500*, but qualifying students can receive partial or full tuition grants. Our grants are not loans; they do not need to be repaid by the student.

*Tuition is $8500 for the program. Online students must provide their own computer equipment and the required software, (estimated at $569.99 when purchased on their own, making the program cost $9069.99).

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.
