The CompTIA Server+ course builds on your existing professional experience to present the next tier of skills and concepts that you will use on the job when administering any type of network server, be it in data center or cloud environments. CompTIA Server+ covers the latest server technologies including virtualization, security and network-attached storage. Skills learned include server architecture, administration, storage, security, networking, troubleshooting, and disaster recovery. The course provides the primary knowledge and skills you will require preparing for any type of network server-related career and assists in preparation for the Server+ SK0-005 certification exam.
CompTIA Network+ validates the technical skills needed to securely establish, maintain and troubleshoot the essential networks that businesses rely on. Unlike other vendor-specific networking certifications, CompTIA Network+ prepares candidates to support networks on any platform. CompTIA Network+ is the only certification that covers the specific skills that network professionals need. Other certifications are so broad, they don’t cover the hands-on skills and precise knowledge needed in today’s networking environments. This course assists in the preparation for the CompTIA Network+ certification exam (N10-008).
CompTIA Linux+ validates the skills administrators need to secure the enterprise, power the cloud and keep systems running. The new certification ensures that IT professionals, software developers, cybersecurity engineers and penetration testers have these necessary skills to support today’s tech systems. CompTIA Linux+ is the only job-focused Linux certification covering the latest foundational skills demanded by hiring managers. Unlike other certifications, the new exam includes performance-based and multiple-choice questions to identify the employees who can do the job. The exam covers tasks associated with all major distributions of Linux, setting the foundation for advanced vendor/distro-specific knowledge. This course assists in the preparation for the CompTIA Linux+ certification exam (XK0-005).
CompTIA Project+ is intended for individuals in various job roles who are involved in managing, leading, and participating in small- to medium-scale projects. You will apply recognized practices of project management and understand the knowledge and skills required to manage the project life cycle (from initiation and planning through execution, acceptance, support and closure), ensure appropriate communication, manage resources, manage stakeholders, and maintain project documentation. Project+ covers a high-level introduction to Agile. Additionally, this course can be a significant part of your preparation for the CompTIA Project+ PK0-004 certification exam.
The CompTIA Security+ is the first security certification a candidate should earn. It establishes the core knowledge required of any cybersecurity role and provides a springboard to intermediate-level cybersecurity jobs. Security+ incorporates best practices in hands-on troubleshooting, ensuring candidates have practical security problem-solving skills required to: Assess the security posture of an enterprise environment and recommend and implement appropriate security solutions. Monitor and secure hybrid environments, including cloud, mobile and IoT. Operate with an awareness of applicable laws and policies, including principles of governance, risk, and compliance. Identify, analyze and respond to security events and incidents. Assists in the preparation for the CompTIA Security+ SY0-601 certification exam.
The CompTIA CySA+ (Cybersecurity Analyst+) course covers the duties of cybersecurity analysts who are responsible for monitoring and detecting security incidents in information systems and networks, and for executing a proper response to such incidents. Depending on the size of the organization, this individual may act alone or may be a member of a cybersecurity incident response team (CSIRT). The course introduces tools and tactics to manage cybersecurity risks, identify various types of common threats, evaluate the organization's security, collect and analyze cybersecurity intelligence, and handle incidents as they occur. Ultimately, the course promotes a comprehensive approach to security aimed toward those on the front lines of defense. This course assists in the preparation for the CompTIA CySA+ CS0-002 certification exam.
The CompTIA PenTest+ course is designed for IT professionals who want to develop penetration testing skills to enable them to identify information-system vulnerabilities and effective remediation techniques for those vulnerabilities. Introduces general concepts and methodologies related to penetration testing as you work your way through a simulated pen test for a fictitious company. The course covers the primary knowledge and skills required to plan and scope an assessment, understand legal and compliance requirements, perform vulnerability scanning and penetration testing, analyze data, and effectively report and communicate practical recommendations for action to properly protect information systems and their content. This course assists in the preparation for the CompTIA PenTest+ PT0-002 certification exam.
The CASP+ (CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner) course covers technical skills in security architecture and senior security engineering in traditional, cloud, and hybrid environments, governance, risk, and compliance skills, assessing an enterprise’s cybersecurity readiness, and leading technical teams to implement enterprise-wide cybersecurity solutions. Successful candidates will have the knowledge required to: Architect, engineer, integrate, and implement secure solutions across complex environments to support a resilient enterprise. Use monitoring, detection, incident response, and automation to proactively support ongoing security operations in an enterprise environment. Apply security practices to cloud, on-premises, endpoint, and mobile infrastructure, while considering cryptographic technologies and techniques. Consider the impact of governance, risk, and compliance requirements throughout the enterprise. This course assists in the preparation for the CompTIA CASP+ CAS-004 certification exam.
