The CompTIA Authorized Delivery Partner Program Is Valuable to Instructors and Learners

Through CIN, instructors also have access to Train-the-Trainer (TTT) online courses that are offered for new and updated certifications. TTT are offered both live and on-demand and are targeted to help instructors prepare for success in the classroom.

A CompTIA Authorized Delivery Partner’s learners also have access to an interactive career pathway planning tool. With this tool, they can learn about how certifications are instrumental in helping develop different career pathways in IT. They can also use this tool to get information about job outlooks and median national salaries for various IT job roles.
