CompTIA awards the CAQC designation only after stringent review by industry experts. According to CompTIA’s website “Training material given the CAQC seal has gone through a rigorous approval process to confirm the work meets exam objectives, language standards and necessary hands-on exercises and labs. Students, training organizations and educational institutions recognize the CAQC logo as the quality trademark of CompTIA certification materials.“
Job growth is strong in the IT sector, and nowhere is that more apparent than in the security arena. According to Baseline “84% of hirers say most job applicants are ‘under-prepared’ to fill available positions.” The recently released Robert Half Technology 2012 Salary Guide noted that security professionals on average should see a salary increase of 4.5%. The report also found that while job and earnings growth will be solid across the board, finding candidates with the right skills will be more difficult.
With job demand far exceeding available qualified candidates, ExamForce recognizes the challenge CIO’s face in the coming year and is focused on providing IT professionals with the finest training in the marketplace. Noting the explosion of cloud-based technology and the rapid expansion of virtual computing environments, ExamForce president Kevin Forcier said the company continues to focus on driving higher standards for training products.
“We are committed to excellence” said Forcier. “It’s a highly competitive landscape and IT pro’s need to know who to trust. By making sure our software is of the highest quality and conforms to the strictest standards as decreed by CompTIA, there will be no guesswork when it is time to decide which training provider to choose.”
The CompTIA Security+ is a vendor neutral certification that spans information technology’s need for security professionals. It is also a component certification of the Department of Defense’s 8570 directive. The directive requires any individual with access to DoD systems and who conduct information assurance (IT security) functions as part of their job be certified commensurate with their job responsibilities.
