Our Partnership With the Computing Technology Industry Association

The Tulane University SoPA Information Technology Programs Department has partnered with the Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA), a non-profit trade association and the leading provider of vendor-neutral IT certifications in the world, with more than 2,000,000 IT certifications issued worldwide.

Through this partnership, students who have successfully completed related courses are afforded the opportunity to take CompTIA professional Certification exams at highly discounted prices. In doing so, students will not only receive a top-tier information technology academic degree, as well as the opportunity to achieve targeted professional certifications from the world’s leading (non-vendor) certification organization.

“I wanted to let you know that I did take and pass the certification exam and that your class and teaching/various tips offered throughout the semester were very helpful in me passing the test. The strategies you discussed during our lectures were immensely helpful… Since you broke down how the COMPTIA graded the test, I really focused on doing my best on the multiple choice section which is what I believed allowed me to pass… Once again, thank you for much for your time and guidance throughout the class. I was concerned about taking the certification test because I had no practical work experience and I credit your class for providing me the necessary tools to pass.”
    —Tulane University Info Tech Student Andrew de Alminana
