Skills Development and Continuing Education
CompTIA CertMaster and CompTIA CertMaster CE are online learning tools that help you prepare for your next certification and renew existing certifications. CompTIA CertMaster guides you through course material, adjusting as you answer questions to focus on what you need to learn, not what you already know. CompTIA CertMaster CE bridges the content gap between the exam you took to earn your certification and the latest release.
KnowledgePath CE is a self-paced learning course that helps you earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs) as you read through curated content and complete assignments and quizzes to assess your learning.
CompTIA hosts quarterly IT Pro Webinars where you can earn while hearing from experts in the field on a wide variety of topics. Check out upcoming webinars as well as on-demand webinars that you can watch in your own time.
Industry and Career Information
In addition to getting your IT career news, which covers IT careers and certifications, CompTIA's blog covers other topics to enhance your understanding of the IT industry. The CompTIA Blog also covers IT industry news and trends as well as advocacy topics such as public policy efforts and legislation related to the tech industry. Last but not least, Creating IT Futures highlights the work of Creating IT Futures, a nonprofit established by CompTIA, as well as more career advice.
