CompTIA recognizes that the US faces both short-term IT talent supply issues and long-term skills development opportunities CompTIA believes that providing a quality education for our children today will lead to a more knowledgeable and empowered workforce in the future. We support investment in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education activities issues.

As such, CompTIA supports the reauthorization and improvement of federal workforce and education laws such as the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Improvement Act, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, the Workforce Investment and Opportunity Act. We also support apprenticeships and on-the-job training programs that help with transitions from the classroom into a career. We also favor initiatives that support the use of industry recognized credentials as a way to validate knowledge and skill.
