CompTIA Authorized Academy

Organizations are reaching out for trained and skilled information security professionals to help fill key positions.  People with the right skill sets are becoming increasingly scarce and companies need individuals who can protect their programs and data from unintended or unauthorized access, change, or destruction.   With the growing number of different technology platforms, there is a huge increase in the number of vulnerabilities to be exploited.  Cybercriminals only need one way in, but trained professionals must be knowledgeable in all areas of information and cybersecurity.  The skills gap is ever widening and businesses need professionals who can make recommendations based on business strategic initiatives as well as implement security measures that are cost effective and sustainable for long term management.

Methodist University has partnered with CompTIA to bring students curriculum that is aligned with objectives on CompTIA exams. In addition to being a CompTIA Authorized Training Provider, students are offered deep discounts on CompTIA’s certification tests which will help students reduce overall costs for certification.
