CompTIA Certifications in Australia, New Zealand, and the Philippines

CompTIA has four IT certification series that test different knowledge standards – from entry-level to expert. These include Core, Infrastructure, Cyber Security, and Data and Analytics. Certifications align with IT infrastructure and cybersecurity career paths. Each certification represents a deepening of your expertise. Core certifications lay the foundation for specialised pathway certifications. There is a defacto fifth series for Additional Professional that cover necessary IT skills like project management.

CompTIA A+ is the preferred qualifying credential for technical support and IT operational roles. CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) is an IT workforce certification that applies behavioural analytics to networks and devices to prevent, detect and combat cybersecurity threats through continuous security monitoring. CompTIA Linux+ is for the IT pro who will use Linux to manage everything from cars and smartphones to servers and supercomputers, as a vast number of enterprises use Linux in cloud, cybersecurity, mobile and web administration applications. The CompTIA Network+ certification is the leading vendor-neutral certification for networking professionals.

A common question we get is whether CompTIA certifications are worth it. We answer that they most definitely are. The A+ certification, CompTIA Security+ certification and others are recognised in Australia, New Zealand and the Philippines. The people who hold the almost 1.2 million CompTIA A+ certifications issued to date are a testament to the value of this credential.

And when it comes to difficulty levels, we've found that A+ and other CompTIA issued exams and certifications are about as challenging as any other professional accreditation or licensure exam.
