1. Save With a Bundle

Purchasing a bundle is the easiest way for anyone to get a voucher discount. CompTIA combines exam vouchers with training materials into bundles to help you fully prepare for your certification exam and save up to 46%* off the retail price. Many bundles include the exam voucher, study materials (including CertMaster training) and a retake voucher in case you don’t pass your exam on the first try. With a bundle, you can go into your exam with confidence knowing that you’ve set yourself up for success.

CompTIA offers four types of bundles, and most of them include the following products:

How to Get a UK CompTIA Student Discount

  1. Go to the CompTIA Academic Store.
  2. Discounts are already applied and reflected in the prices you see in the CompTIA Academic Store, so simply add the item(s) you want to your cart. Please note there are limitations on quantity and frequency of purchases.
  3. Upon checkout, enter your student information for CompTIA to verify. You may be asked to upload supporting documentation.
  4. Start studying and get certified!

4. Other Voucher Discounts

Depending on where you live and what you qualify for, you may be able to get trained and certified for free (or nearly free). Many training providers and colleges support government skills programmes such as bootcamps and apprenticeships and are able to fully fund or partially fund training and certifications. If you don’t qualify for these free programmes, you can look for a self-funded training programme from an Authorised CompTIA Partner.

Getting an IT certification is an investment that will pay back in spades. But, if you need a more economical way to get certified, you have options. Bundles, discounts and training programmes that include certifications can all help you save money when buying certification vouchers.

How to Get a CompTIA Exam Voucher

You know which certification you need, and you know how to save. So how do you get started? We recommend purchasing vouchers and training solutions directly from the CompTIA Store, the CompTIA Academic Store or a CompTIA Authorized Partner.

How Long is a CompTIA Exam Voucher Valid?

A CompTIA exam voucher is valid for 12 months from the date you received it. A voucher expiration date cannot be extended under any circumstances. A purchased voucher can be used for any version of the certification exam as long as it’s used before it expires. You must register and take your certification exam prior to the voucher expiration date. Review the CompTIA voucher terms and conditions for more details or check out our FAQs.
