CompTIA has introduced the latest additions to its portfolio of education and training resources for the IT channel and industry. The new offerings include a Quick Start Guide to Education IT, several Quick Start e-learning Courses, and a series of on-demand Executive Certificate courses.
“Ongoing, advanced education and training are critical to a channel partner’s continued growth and success, and represent a high-value benefit of becoming a Registered User or Premier Member of CompTIA,” says Kelly Ricker, senior vice president, events and education, CompTIA. “Our education and training offerings are comprehensive and current, developed with the guidance of the industry’s best business minds.”
The new Quick Start Guide to Education IT was developed to provide IT solution providers with a snapshot of current trends in the education market as well as insights into how to take advantage of the unique challenges and opportunities faced by K-12 schools in the United States.
Additionally, several CompTIA Executive Certificate programs – previously only available in a live, classroom-based environment – are now offered as self-paced online curriculum. The association’s portfolio of on-demand executive training programs includes:
- Executive Certificate in Cloud Intermediate addresses the “how-tos” of profitably integrating cloud-based services into a channel partners’ business, delving into specific elements of growing a cloud-based business.
- Executive Certificate in IT Security Foundations assists channel partners in becoming a trusted IT security advisor. Participants learn to gauge the impact of emerging trends on their customers’ businesses, how to explore ways to facilitate meaningful conversations around security, and how to leverage those conversations in the design and implementation of appropriate security solutions.
- Executive Certificate in Mobility Foundations provides an overview of the various opportunities for MSPs and IT solution providers to build their businesses around mobility, including establishing a mobile strategy, and understanding mobile management and the stages of the mobile device lifecycle.
CompTIA’s Executive Certificate programs are available to CompTIA Premier Members only.
The association is also offering many of its Quick Start Guides as short one-hour video courses. Available to both CompTIA Registered Users and Premier Members, the lineup of Quick Start e-Learning courses includes: The Art of the Deal, Business Agility, Managed Services, Managing a Managed Services Sales Organization, Improving Sales with a Sales Playbook, and Tackling Cloud Security Concerns.
