TechSherpas, a Tampa, FL based IT training company, announced today that they are a CompTIA Authorized Partner. The CompTIA Authorized Partner Program recognizes CompTIA training and courseware partners who provide quality classes and materials for certification. These partners have been reviewed and approved by CompTIA and provide the most comprehensive certification exam preparation through traditional instructor-led or virtual training classes. As a CompTIA Authorized partner, TechSherpas can provide its customers with additional training benefits and in-demand certifications.
In order to become a CompTIA Authorized Partner, TechSherpas had to complete a stringent application process. To maintain partner status, they must abide by specific training guidelines and apply quality assurance measures. All instructors are CompTIA certified, and utilize approved authorized content and courseware. Course evaluations are an important condition of the partnership, as they ensure quality instruction is upheld. TechSherpas tracks and reports course evaluations through Metrics that Matter (MTM).
“CompTIA certifications are widely recognized and the skills developed are useful in any IT job,” says Randy Dempsey, TechSherpas’ President and CEO. “The ability to provide these certification preparation courses gives IT students the opportunity to get IT certified without getting vendor specific. Everyone has an option.”
Among the CompTIA certification courses being offered by TechSherpas are A+, Security+, Network+, Linux+, and Cloud Essentials. As with the other IT training courses offered by TechSherpas, students can take these classes via the delivery method of their choice, including traditional classroom instruction, remote classroom instruction, and private on-site group training.

In addition to being a training partner, TechSherpas is also a Prometric Testing Center. Students can sign up to take their certification exam through the Prometric website. Once the student has completed the certification prep course, TechSherpas can proctor the certification test, and the student can leave the same day CompTIA certified.
CompTIA builds vendor-neutral certifications that measure foundational skills. They show employers you have the skills to do the job, regardless of the vendor of the hardware or software product. CompTIA certifications are recommend for those who are just starting a career in IT, and are not yet set on a vendor specific technology like Microsoft, Cisco, VMware, etc. They are universal, and are a prerequisite to many IT jobs and even higher level vendor-specific certifications, like those mentioned. Those seeking entry level positions as a computer technician, technical support representative, help desk specialist, network administrator, network engineer, network technician, security analyst, security specialist, or network security engineer should explore the various certifications CompTIA has to offer.
