In the Information Technology (IT) industry, academic achievement and earning potential go hand in hand. Although there is a continuing debate between degree-level achievement and certifications, the answer for most IT professionals is obvious: go for both.

As students learn advanced topics in computer performance and troubleshooting, they will also be introduced to basics of networking and security. Knowing how to assist network engineers and security analysts is helpful for moving up the skill ladder, and the learning framework will prepare students for other CompTIA certifications.

CompTIA Certifications

CompTIA certifications cover industry standards from basic help desk proficiency to server-level and system security expertise. Our academic program prepares you for multiple levels of CompTIA’s catalog, allowing you to move up and down the IT ladder and achieve greatness in even niche, high-demand parts of the IT and Computer Science world.

As a Help Desk Technician, you’re the first line—and sometimes, the only line—of defense for business, organizations, startups, projects, and even personal clients that need help in the rapidly changing tech world.

The Help Desk department in many large businesses exists as both a place for new technicians to learn the best practices of their trade, as well as a place for veterans to get the high visibility, high demand exposure needed to take the next step in their career.

A+ Certification

For many technicians, the A+ certification is the first step in becoming a professional IT. The certification covers everything that a new technician needs to know in order to perform well in a help desk department, or to make their mark as the sole IT professional in businesses that need skilled and savvy tech leadership.

The certification covers break/fix solutions for today’s IT landscape:

  • Mobile devices, such as Android, Apple, and Windows smartphones and tablets.
  • Desktop computers.
  • Laptop computers.
  • Routers.
  • Modems.
  • Switches.
  • Hubs.
  • Printers.

As students learn advanced topics in computer performance and troubleshooting, they will also be introduced to basics of networking and security. Knowing how to assist network engineers and security analysts is helpful for moving up the skill ladder, and the learning framework will prepare students for other CompTIA certifications.

 (CASP) Certification

The CASP certification steps away from security management and into security policies, techniques, and theory to make a bigger impact on the tech world.

As an advanced option for Security+ and other standard security options, advanced security professionals will learn how to create the policies that protect systems across the world. The ability to dig deeper into existing threats, understand how malicious code works, and searching for vulnerabilities even before bad actors are able to figure out an attack are just a few of the tools in the CASP professional’s arsenal.

CASP knowledge branches into virtualization technology and cloud computing to not only make systems more efficient, but to develop and practice security and threat-mitigation techniques in a safe, virtual environment.

Cryptographic techniques and crypto security such as blockchain, cryptocurrency generation and management, and mobile device encryption topics are covered as CASP professionals challenge mobile security and modern threats such as Ransomware.

Network+ Certification

The Network+ certification delivers a vendor-neutral framework, allowing students to learn about how data is managed across networks without being bound to a specific brand of devices.

Although many network professionals will seek out multiple certifications for deeper, specific knowledge, the Network+ certifications gives lifelong learners and career-minded networking professionals the tools they need to switch between vendors and certification needs without the common confusion of vendor-specific differences.

Syntax is everything, and different routers and switches may need similar, but different commands to perform similar tasks. When a specific vendor is the only solution for a new and useful networking technique, understanding the core concepts of most network systems can help students make the switch to a new system with greater ease.

Server+ Certification

For many technical operations, server management is a full-time job. As a hybrid of system administration and networking, server administration, management, and troubleshooting requires a special breed of technicians who can cover multiple tech disciplines within one job.

The Server+ certification prepares students by teaching installation, configuration, troubleshooting, planned maintenance, and a more focused approach to device lifecycles. To be successful at server management, professionals need to constantly evaluate their server, perform maintenance with service advisories, and upgrade systems for increasing network demand.

Security+ Certification

In a world of daily breaches and demystified hacking, the need for security professionals is greater than ever. Businesses need professionals who can not only react to the major system security threats on the open internet, but forward thinkers who can fight security threats before they happen.

The Security+ certification introduces information security best practices, the removal of exploits and system weaknesses—also known as hardening—penetration testing to evaluate security on demand, and the knowledge to understand how and why technology bad actors pick specific targets.

Linux+ Certification

Many CompTIA certifications provide vendor-neutral learning, and Linux provides many tools to stay as flexible as possible in a world of changing brands and new products.

The Linux+ certification trains students in the Linux operating system and application suites. Knowledge of Linux installation, configuration and daily use makes many other areas of the IT world easier due to deeper customization and greater system flexibility.

Even in a world with high Apple OS and Microsoft OS use, the ability to work with and master Linux gives professionals the tools they need to work with cost-effective Linux systems while understanding Mac and Windows at more complex levels that are not always obvious to the standard user.
