Program Overview

Course Overview

The CompTIA Security+ training works to develop an understanding of network administration by gaining certifiable knowledge of the Security+ objectives. This certification is next step above A+ and Network+ and is sure to be listed on the new NICE 8140 standard. This national standard states that anyone who will work on a DOD or DOD contractor network is REQUIRED to hold this certification. Students learn how to secure and manage all facets of the network from CPU cycles to software used by individuals or across a network. Security+ is the next level (after A+ and Network+) to attain certification for every IT network administrator. This course will prepare the student to pass the CompTIA Security+® certification exam SY0-401 and begin their career into network administration. Security+ certified employees earn 9% more than Network+ certified employees.


Security+ courseware with approximately 19 hours of instructive video, interactive labs, pre-tests/post-tests, adaptive test prep program and online student workbook. Students will also have access to virtual machine simulators and Security+ textbooks. One exam voucher for the SY0-401 exam. We will also include our education coaching.
