COURSE DESCRIPTION

The CompTIA Security+ Certification validates the baseline skills necessary to perform core security functions. The CompTIA Security+ exam will certify that the successful candidate has the knowledge and skills required to install and configure systems to secure applications, networks, and devices; perform threat analysis and respond with appropriate mitigation techniques; participate in risk mitigation activities; and operate with an awareness of applicable policies, laws, and regulations. The successful candidate will perform these tasks to support the principles of confidentiality, integrity, and availability.

Our CompTIA Security+ certification training program is designed to address the performance-based questions to test hands-on skills throughout the course as well as until the candidates tests. 

COURSE MATERIALS

The course includes the Student Manual, access to the CompTIA Learning Center, 12-month access to Practical Labs, one Certification Exam Voucher, and a Certificate of Course Completion. 

COURSE DELIVERY

This course will be delivered as an instructor-led training program in-person or virtual based on current COVID restrictions. Exam vouchers will be provided for candidates to schedule their exam session at an authorized PearsonVUE Testing Center or learners can certify from home with online testing -- whichever works best for you.
