The Benefits of Being CompTIA Certified

The Industry Standard
Did you know that 96% of HR managers use IT certifications as a screening or hiring criteria?
IT certifications are a valuable way to advance your career, whether you have an entry level job, or you’re a seasoned IT professional.
CompTIA Certifications are one of the most highly recognized IT standards in the industry, with over two million professionals certified worldwide. The majority of hiring managers believe IT certifications are a reliable predictor of successful employees, and they also believe that certifications will become even more important in the coming years.
Certifications = Better Performance, Higher Pay
Businesses also report that CompTIA certified employees routinely perform better than their non-certified counterparts. For instance:

  • CompTIA certified professionals out-perform their colleagues by up to 53% in IT Support and IT Security.
  • CompTIA certified staff demonstrate 40% more domain knowledge in IT Support, and 58% more domain knowledge in IT Security.
  • Employees with CompTIA Security+ Certifications are 85% more confident in their skills to perform their jobs.
