We believe tech careers should be accessible to anyone with a dream and passion to pursue them.

5 Reasons to Choose CompTIA Tech
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.
Our Alumni Say It Best
Career Switch from Beautician to IT Pro
After more than 15 years working in a salon, Jennifer Burks finished CompTIA Tech's IT-Ready Technical Support program and got CompTIA A+ certified. She said having an IT certification on her resume made a big difference when she was applying for jobs.
“They made us work-ready, set us up with job preparation skills, I got help updating my resume,” she said. “I really didn’t have any idea how to apply for technical jobs with nothing on my resume.”
From High School to an IT Career
“In five years, I see myself as being the go-to guy for all things tech and hopefully be a mentor to others in IT. Without IT-Ready, I’d probably not be working in IT at all,” said Horatio.
