Recent Company News

What is CompTIA? You may ask. What courses do they offer? Well Anthony David Hopkins provides a brief introduction to CompTIA Certifications.

By Anthony David Hopkins

CompTIA or the Computing Technology Industry Association has developed an unshakable and lasting reputation in offering well recognized and prestigious qualification standards for a variety of professionals, not just those working in the IT sector. But most of these certifications do pertain to information technology, and involve the application of information technology to various other fields such as telecommunications. A CompTIA certification, such as CompTIA Project+ is particularly very useful for project managers.

In fact, there are few institutes that offer the kind of variety that you will find with CompTIA. One of the most popular certifications offered by them is the CompTIA A+, which is the most basic level of certification and involves the verification of the skills and knowledge of a computer technician. It is quite a comprehensive certification in terms of its coverage, which makes it useful for aspiring IT professionals, since it can serve as the foundation grounds for building further qualifications.

Apart from that, CompTIA certification platform offers specialized certifications in a number of areas. It covers fields as vital as networking in CompTIA Network+, security in CompTIA Security+, server management in CompTIA Server+, voice and data network management in CompTIA CTP+, document imaging in CompTIA CDIA+, traditional and virtual classroom management in CompTIA CTT+ and Linux systems management CompTIA LINUX+ among many other areas. In fact, the CompTIA Linux+ is becoming increasingly popular due to its unique position in the industry.

One of the reasons why people prefer a CompTIA certification is simply the fact that it is a neutral institution requiring expertise which could be applied for a number of manufacturing platforms. Most other institutes like Microsoft, Apple and Cisco are very much confined to their own products and software for offering verification to the skills and knowledge of IT professionals. This proves more useful to IT professionals in a way.
