By Tom Liszka

As the world has shifted to work from home and online education in response to the pandemic, CompTIA Tech Academy has expanded its online IT learning programs to train people to fill the abundance of open tech jobs. One of the most popular offerings within our custom training portfolio is Self-Paced Mentored Learning.

This flexible program offers online instructor-led workshops. Students can learn at their own speed, their own level and at their own convenience all with the support of experienced instructors to guide them through the learning process. For many, especially those who have jobs but want to expand or develop their IT skills, this program is a great option.

It can be particularly helpful for those who desire to earn several CompTIA stackable certifications. It allows for a targeted learning experience that prepares you to take the next step in strengthening your skills and qualifications. 

For those who aren’t sure exactly what CompTIA Stackable certifications are, we’ll first briefly explain how they work and then describe how CompTIA Tech Academy’s mentored learning approach is a great resource for earning them.


CompTIA Stackable Certifications

CompTIA stackable certifications are groupings of individual certifications offered by CompTIA that together demonstrate competence in a particular domain of IT. 

For example, if you were to earn the CompTIA A+ together with the CompTIA Network+, then you would be recognized as a CompTIA IT Operations Specialist. 

The stackable certifications have been developed with input from industry experts and are designed to make sure you have the skills and knowledge you’ll need to be qualified for in-demand roles. They outline a clear pathway you can follow to advance in your tech career.

The mentored learning program delivers the right balance between self-paced and classroom-based courses, including labs. It includes access to  CompTIA IT Fundamentals (ITF+)CompTIA A+CompTIA Network+CompTIA Security+ and CompTIA Project+ with business skills certifications. This selection of certifications gives you the building blocks you need to start down either of CompTIA’s stackable certification pathways. 

With more than 2 million IT certifications issued worldwide, CompTIA has developed certification exams that map directly to today’s IT job roles. Our IT-Ready Technical Support training gives you everything you need to pass them.  

Our instructors are experts in their fields, with several years of real-world IT experience and hold the certifications they teach. They follow industry-standard IT training best practices to get results.

We know that learning is very individual, which is why engagement with our instructors is a vital part of the program. A centralized platform allows for regular reporting on activity, which creates the opportunity for our instructors to be proactive in engaging students to make sure they take advantage of all the resources available to them. 

We also know that success in the workplace requires more than just technical knowledge. That’s why we provide exam preparation tools and performance-based questions as well as job placement and marketing services. We go beyond building students’ knowledge and actually help them build their careers.

This mentored learning program is a core element of our mission to empower the workforce and to provide on-ramps to build the talent pipeline and help people achieve high paying IT careers.
