Prepare for CompTIA A+, NETWORK+, and SECURITY+ Certification

As the business world evolves, many administrative assistants are earning their Certified Administrative Professional (CAP) and Microsoft Office Master credentials. This 100% online course will help you gain the technical skills and knowledge needed to gain these valuable industry certifications.

CompTIA A+, Network+ and Security+ symbols

Computer and information technology (IT) support specialists are in demand. Nearly every organization that uses computers and computing devices needs user and technology support. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) expects computer support jobs to grow 10% between now and 2027, twice the rate of overall job growth.

BLS data indicates that computer support specialists earn $54,760 per year or $26.33 per hour on average.

CompTIA's commitment to mobile device support suggests strong continued demand for its certificate holders. According to the BLS analysis, as organizations upgrade their devices, networks and security, demand for support professionals will continue to grow.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE A+, NETWORK+ and SECURITY+ CERTIFICATIONS?

The A+, Network+ and Security+ certifications are sequential. A+ focuses on devices; Network+ is dedicated to the hardware, software and protocols for networking; and Security+ adds the layer of core security functions across devices, networks, and the organizations that deploy them.

WHAT JOBS CAN COMPTIA CERTIFICATE HOLDERS GET?

CompTIA calls the A+, Network+ and Security+ sequence a "stacked" credential that validates baseline skills in the three disciplines: devices, networks, and security. Each individual certification is considered an independent signal of competence in the area it addresses.

WHAT JOB TITLES DOES COMPTIA A+ INCLUDE?

According to CompTIA, the A+ certification is often associated with baseline or entry-level support positions such as service desk analyst, technical support specialist, field service technician, associate network engineer, data support technician, desktop support administrator, end-user computing technician, help desk technician, or system support specialist.

WHAT JOB TITLES DOES COMPTIA NETWORK+ INCLUDE?

According to CompTIA, the Network+ certification is often associated with positions such as Network administrator, network field engineer, computer technician, help desk technician, system engineer, network support specialist, or network analyst.

WHAT JOB TITLES DOES COMPTIA SECURITY+ INCLUDE?

According to CompTIA, the Security+ certification is often associated with junior IT auditor or penetration tester positions. Other titles might include systems administrator, network administrator, or security administrator.
