Who Can Use CompTIA Logos
How you use any CompTIA logo reflects both on our association and your organization. Use it proudly to show your commitment to quality service and excellence. We encourage you to involve your entire organization in helping CompTIA raise the profile and enhance the image of the association. Only authorized users can use or display a CompTIA logo.
