CompTIA Security+ Certification FAQs

CompTIA is a non-profit association that provides professional training courses of varying difficulty levels. Broadly, these certifications are designed to allow delegates to be able to engage with a range of IT software, and allow entry into, or advancement within, the IT industry.
We offer CompTIA Security+ training courses in locations all over the UK, as well as abroad. Here at The Knowledge Academy, we make it easy to find a training venue near you!
During the four day classroom based training, delegates will be provided with a course manual, an experienced trainer, refreshments, and a certificate.

The exam can be retaken, or you can participate in a number of activities and training programs, to renew your certification with the CompTIA Continuing Education (CE) Program. The CE Program works on a point-based system, and so at least 50 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) need to be collected within three years to renew your CompTIA Security+ qualification.
