If climbing the corporate IT ladder was a video game, CompTIA CertMaster would be the golden coin that helps you conquer the end boss. In CompTIA’s new YouTube video, Career Level Up, an entry-level IT technician uses CompTIA CertMaster to take him on an epic journey from his status quo cubicle to an office with a view.
To make things interesting, the one-minute video includes a staggering 35 hidden references to 27 popular video games. Can’t find them all? Register for a free trial of CompTIA CertMaster and receive a cheat sheet containing clues to help you out.
While the video is clever — not to mention fun to watch — there’s nothing cartoonish about CompTIA CertMaster. CompTIA CertMaster is an online, confidence-based learning solution designed to help users learn and retain information effectively. CertMaster was designed to help users learn and recall information when they need it most, like on the job or sitting for IT certification exams that form the foundation of an IT career.
The IT skills gap is well-documented: There’s a lack of qualified applicants for lucrative and available IT positions. IT certifications like CompTIA A+, Network+, Security+, or Strata IT Fundamentals can be a critical differentiator in landing one of those available jobs, and CertMaster covers all of them. The new learning tool can help job seekers level up by adding CompTIA certifications to their resumes.
CompTIA CertMaster was designed to help users prepare for these certification exams. It complements other training and curriculum and can help users affirm and support their level of confidence so they have a better handle of what they’re studying.
