San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) November 04, 2013
CompTIA, a worldwide leader in information technology certifications, has awarded The Hacker Academy the ability to issue Continuing Education Units to their students, allowing students to keep their CompTIA credentials current. Qualifying certifications include A+, Network+, and Security+. When paired with knowledge gained at The Hacker Academy on topics such as Ethical Hacking, Reverse Engineering, Digital Forensics, and Penetration Testing, these students will be ready to move forward towards more challenging endeavors such as the CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP) certification.
Students of The Hacker Academy will find it easy to claim their Continuing Education Units. One Hacker Academy module, which includes a video, quiz, and hands-on interactive lab, will get a student 1 CEU to put towards their respective certification. With over 150 modules currently in rotation, students are able to pick content that caters specifically to their wants and needs.
The aforementioned certifications provide great starting points for people ready to get serious about information technology and they are great examples of prerequisites for THA membership. Since the world is on the brink of what the press deems an unavoidable ‘Global Cyber War', providing a spot to bridge the gap from general IT to information security may persuade more entry and beginner level professionals to intertwine the two.
