The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) is a leading voice and advocate for the $5 trillion global information technology ecosystem; and the estimated 75 million industry and tech professionals who design, implement, manage and safeguard the technology that powers the world’s economy.
Through education, training, certifications, philanthropy and market research, CompTIA promotes industry growth; the development of a highly-skilled workforce and a commitment to creating an environment where innovation happens and the opportunities and benefits made possible through technology are available to all.
We are a vendor-neutral, independent source of information on a wide range of technology topics, including cybersecurity; education, training and certification of the global tech workforce; new and emerging technologies; legislation and policies affecting the industry and workforce data, development and trends.
Our membership and certification holders span the full range of technology companies from established Fortune 500 leaders to small and medium-sized tech businesses that help customers solve real business problems around the world; and emerging tech-service innovators that support the implementation and management of the latest technology solutions.
We routinely engage with individual technology professionals as the largest vendor-neutral credentialing program for technology workers. CompTIA has awarded more than 2.5 million certifications in areas such as cybersecurity, networking, cloud computing and technical support.
CompTIA also maintains a robust partner program around the world with thousands of academic institutions, not-for-profits, job corps centers and other organizations. Together we are educating, training and certifying new generations of technology workers.
In an era when every individual is tech engaged and every organization is tech enabled, CompTIA is the leading destination for both. As an association dedicated to innovation, CompTIA unifies learning and opportunity in a welcoming, forward-thinking place. We are the connected global community of informed advocates, championing modern technology (and the people who advance it) one day, one deployment, one discovery at a time. CompTIA is tech forward.
