CompTIA and TestOut have joined forces, accelerating the shared goal of empowering millions of students with technical training and digital literacy education.
Through this acquisition, two mission-driven organizations unite to extend best-in-class learning solutions, industry-recognized certifications and career accelerators to students, professionals and academic institutions worldwide.
With employer hiring activity for technology and digital job roles reaching an all-time high, projections over the next decade indicate demand for tech workers will grow at twice the rate of the overall labor force. There is a critical economic need to break the cycle of persistent talent shortages, and an equally critical need to expand opportunity and diversify the tech workforce.
With TestOut now part of CompTIA, its mission “to make a difference in a person’s life, through education using breakthrough technology” will live on as a new facet of CompTIA’s mission to “unlock the potential of every individual.”
