New Port Richey, Fla, June 25, 2020 – CompTIA, a global leader in training and certifications for technology professionals, and its partner Learn on Demand Systems are making it easier for aspiring tech professionals to develop and demonstrate their job skills.
The two organizations said today that they are extending access to eLearning labs from six months to a full year for CompTIA educational partners and their students who are seeking to earn technical certifications from CompTIA and using Official CompTIA Content to prepare.
“The COVID-19 pandemic caused unprecedented disruption to the learning experience for students and instructors alike,” said Ryan Blankenship, CompTIA’s vice president of product. “We want every student who is interested in becoming CompTIA certified to have the opportunity to do so, and to prepare for their exam without worry due to issues of access, disruption or equity.”

These labs provide learners the ability to hone their skills in a virtual environment to gain skills and experience necessary for success on CompTIA’s performance-based certification exams and their future job roles.
