5 Reasons to Choose CompTIA Tech Career Academy


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.

CompTIA A+: The Industry Standard Certification to Start an IT Career

Our Alumni Say It Best

Preston Wood

Launching his Second Career 

Keith Bryant’s passion for hands-on electronics work has burned his entire life. Training through the IT-Ready Technical Support program equipped him with knowledge and skills to turn that passion into a paycheck.

“The curriculum was exactly what I needed — there had been changes and I needed that information, and I needed to get back into the habit of studying,” said Keith. 


Career Launches with Apprenticeship

When Nicole R. Sain was laid off from a job that didn’t excite her, she saw it as a sign that working in the information technology field was where she should be. Now, having graduated from our IT-Ready Technical Support program, Nicole says, “the employment opportunities are endless.”

“The IT-Ready Technical Support program gave me the foundational knowledge I needed to successfully test for CompTIA A+ certification,” said Nicole.
