Why CompTIA Certifications?

CompTIA certifications are vendor-neutral credentials that cover the specific tasks and knowledge required for IT jobs, and are well-recognized in the industry.

Eighty-six percent of IT hiring managers place a high or medium priority on IT certifications during the job candidate evaluation process, according to a 2011 CompTIA survey.

IT professionals with certifications on their resume command better jobs, earn higher salaries and have more doors open to new multi-industry opportunities. The average salary for a CompTIA A+ certified tech in 2010 was $50,364, according to a ComputerWorld salary survey.
