Download Details

The purpose of the Security + 10 month program is to allow candidates to study, at their own pace over 10 months to prepare for the exam. It includes access to all study materials, live instruction and a single exam voucher. The 10 month program is available all year and class begins once you sign up. 

Why Take It

CompTIA Security+ is a global certification that validates the baseline skills you need to perform core security functions and pursue an IT security career.

CompTIA Security+ is the first security certification IT professionals 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 trouble-shooting to ensure security professionals have practical security problem-solving skills. Cybersecurity professionals with Security+ know how to address security incidents – not just identify them.

Security+ is compliant with ISO 17024 standards and approved by the US DoD to meet directive 8140/8570.01-M requirements. Regulators and government rely on ANSI accreditation, because it provides confidence and trust in the outputs of an accredited program. Over 2.3 million CompTIA ISO/ANSI-accredited exams have been delivered since January 1, 2011.
