Not-for-profit organisation CompTIA has expanded its education portfolio to encourage more IT professionals to get certified.
The organisation, which recently announced it would be retiring its Trustmark accolades and launching a new best practice programme for the channel, has unveiled new e-learning courses and a series of on-demand executive certificate courses to give members easier access to vital information.
Kelly Ricker, senior vice president, events and education at CompTIA, said: “Ongoing, advanced education and training are critical to a channel partner's continued growth and success.
“Our education and training offerings are comprehensive and current, developed with the guidance of the industry’s best business minds.”
Drilling down, CompTIA is offering its Quick Start Guides as short one-hour video courses, claiming they will help IT professionals, MSPs and resellers improve their business operations. Courses include business agility, tackling cloud security, and managing a managed services sales organisation.
In addition, the organisation has made its Executive Certificate programmes – which were previously available only as live sessions – into self-paced online learning, to give students control over their own development.
CompTIA claims they are designed to help managed services providers and solution providers take full advantage of the opportunities in the industry, and include subjects such as cloud intermediate, IT security foundations and mobility foundations.
