CompTIA Continuing Education (CE) Program Fees

Your certification renewal requirements include annual CE fees. Your payment due dates are based upon your CE cycle dates and not a calendar year. You may pay for one, two or all three years at one time. Please note that you will need to pay your CE fee prior to submitting your CE activities for CEUs.

CompTIA uses PayPal for CE fee payment processing, and you can pay using your:

  • Credit or debit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express).
  • Current PayPal account.

Note: You do not need to create a new PayPal account to pay with a credit or debit card.
