Network+ Experts Needed

CompTIA is looking for IT professionals who have experience working in the field of network administration to be involved in an Cut Score Workshop for the CompTIA Network+ Certification exam.

During the Cut Score workshop, Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) will determine and set the passing standard for the certification exam, and will create, develop and review items for the CompTIA Network+ Exam.

Assistance from Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) is crucial in providing an industry relevant exam. Potential Network+ candidates must have:

  • At least 5 years of experience working in the field of network administration and support
  • It is preferred that potential candidates are Network+ certified or hold equivalent or higher credentials

SMEs who attend the workshop will receive:

  • An honorarium of $440 per day (or $2,200 total for the week), pending adequate level of participation
  • 40 continuing education credits (CEUs)
  • A complementary CompTIA testing voucher for the exam of their choice

In recognition of their contributions, all SMEs who participate in the entire Item Writing workshop will have their names and companies (if provided) listed on the CompTIA website.

*International SMEs will instead receive $540/day stipend ($2,700 total) to help defer additional travel costs.

When: December 4 - 8, 2023
Where: CompTIA Headquarters; 3500 Lacey Rd. Suite 100 Downers Grove, IL 60515 (Downers Grove is a suburb of Chicago)

Only professionals currently working in the field of network administration should apply. Although CompTIA appreciates interest from the training community, applications from trainers, authors, or individuals who may profit or materially benefit from knowledge of the CompTIA credential content are not eligible to participate.
